British Columbia Trucking Safety Group Conducts Research on Falls from Trucks

Posted in on Mon, Aug 12, 2013

From @NIOSHTransport @TruckSafe, comes a report on falls from non-moving vehicles produced by SafetyDriven, the Trucking Safety Council on British Columbia.  The reports states:

“Falls from Non-moving vehicles make up approximately 46% of all falls experienced by all truck drivers or about 12 % of all injuries experienced. These ratios are mirrored within the General Trucking Classification Unit (CU) at a cost to industry of nearly $2.8 Million.”
