Abstract
60% of trucking-industry worker injuries occur at the customer's location. These injuries cost an average of $25,428 per injured trucking worker. It's worth your time and money to talk to your customers about safety issues at their facilities. Protect your employees, and control your L & I costs. Examples of common injuries at customer sites: 1. Workers using all their strength to muscle frozen up mechanical arms into place to fill tankers. 2. Malfunctioning loading dock plates that trip up or cause workers to use excessive force to get their pallet jacks over the hump.
