Do you wonder what exactly summer safety from a professional driver’s viewpoint is?
It is being prepared as we know that summer increases traffic. It is the perfect weather for motorcyclists to go on road trips, for cyclists to fix their bikes and hit the tarmac, for joggers to dust off their runners and enjoy the outdoors and pedestrians to take meandering walks. As professional drivers, we need to be extra vigilant, follow the basic road rules to the tee, and stay alert.
Personal summer safety for drivers and crane operators goes beyond this though, as we spend hours in our vehicles and on job sites and the heat of summer can have a drastic – and yes, sometimes deadly – impact. We plan what our workday will look like so that we can prepare by bringing enough water to maintain hydration and prevent any heat-related syndromes such as heat stroke (the most severe), heat cramps (the mildest) or heat exhaustion. Let’s be honest, there are very few of us who spend all day in an air-conditioned cab, and getting in and out regularly can dehydrate and wear us out very quickly.
There are many other great summer practices that our drivers follow such as:
Our professional truck drivers and crane operators understand the risks of the job, and preparation coupled with self-control informed by their experience, allows us to deliver and hoist your goods safely and to stay on top of our game.
We are officially ready for another busy summer and cannot wait to continue to assist you all!
