3 Point Contact

A leading cause of injury for truck and machine operators is failing to safely mount or dismount their vehicle.

Three point contact, the practice of always having three secure points of contact when mounting or dismounting a vehicle, has been proven to reduce the number of injuries incurred when operators enter and exit their vehicles.

Awareness, Actions and Attitude

Despite almost all surveyed operators knowing about three point contact and believing they use three point contact, only one fifth of observed operators reliably used three point contact.

To help improve safety by increasing the number of operators and drivers using proper three point contact, the BC Forest Safety Council contracted "Beyond Attitude Consulting Inc" to work with drivers and operators to find ways to help Forest Industry operators practice proper three point contact.
