Film: Duration in minutes

3:22 minutes

Content

Truck drivers face hazards on the job every day, hazards that don’t even involve driving. Meet Donna: Mom, delivery truck driver, amateur tennis player. Watch what happens when her life takes a bad turn after she’s struck by a pry bar while securing a load. This story is based on actual claims to WorkSafeBC where workers have been injured after their hands slipped off of a metal bar tool.

Message

When securing your load, use a proper pry bar, wear gloves, don't lean over while cinching up the straps. Professional truck drivers should stay safe on and off the road.

Background

Professional truck drivers can face on-the-job hazards other than driving, such as strapping a load, using a pry bar, or working with landing gear. WorkSafeBC, in partnership with Safety Driven – Trucking Safety Council of BC, introduced this video  to help reduce the risk of injury to drivers.
