June 2015 - Log Loading Safety

Bill was considered a professional driver and worked with the loader operator to build a safe load for every trip. He let the loader operator know about any log that wasn’t sitting properly in the bunks or a log that looked unstable when he was crowning the load. Bill knew that logs coming off the top of loads had seriously injured drivers in the past.

Safe Zones

  • Develop a plan for safe loading and hauling operations. Everyone on site should know the communication procedures and the locations of safe zones.
  • Drivers must stay in a safe zone while being loaded. This is usually inside the cab or in front of the truck. When you are getting out of your truck, let the loader operator know before you exit.
