Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Your safety is very important to us! It is both our goal and that of the European industry that you carry out your work as a commercial driver accident free. We want to help by providing proper safety measures and preventive protection through your “personal protection equipment”! In the following video we have summarised the guidelines for the correct and proper use of “personal protection equipment”.
Safety on site
Before entering industrial premises, familiarise yourself with the safety regulations and strictly comply to them! Many industrial plants have their own information brochures or show a short film.
Checks before departure
Before departure, please check the condition of your vehicle, the vehicle equipment and your personal protective Equipment.
Golden rules of load securing
As the driver you are usually the one who secures the load.
Each load is to be stowed and secured in such a way that even by an emergency stop or sudden manoeuvres the goods will not slide, fall down or roll away.
If you follow the golden rules of load securing you will always be on the safe side. This video clip will teach you, in just 2 minutes, what is important and what to consider when securing loads.
Handling of straps
A sufficient number of load securing aids (straps, edge protectors, anti-slip mats), in perfect condition, is a basic prerequisite for effective load securing.
In the following video clip you will learn what to consider when dealing with load securing equipment.
Types of load securing
When securing loads, there are different securing methods for every load. In the following video clip you will learn which load securing measures are appropriate and reliable.
If the load securing method cannot be properly determined due to the nature of the load (e.g. packaging, centre of gravity), then please ask for instructions regarding adequate load securing from the loader.
Any specified routes given within a transport or a trucking order must be strictly adhered to! If no route is specified, you are responsible for selecting a safe route.
- Use the most direct route on main roads.
- Use, without exception, secure and supervised parking spaces!
- Never stop at known, dangerous parking areas or rest areas (hot spots).
- Routes and rest periods must be planned accordingly!
