Like most oilfield jobs, dump trucking can be a very dangerous gig if not performed correctly. Don’t believe me? Do yourself a favor and type in the words “dump truck accidents” in the Google search box. Hell, I’ll even do it for you.
By looking at the results it doesn’t take a brainiac to see how damaging these accidents can really be. Dump trucks are getting bigger and bigger which means tipping accidents are more likely to occur. Combine this with other day to day hazards and the number of accidents these drivers encounter is suddenly not as shocking.
Today I wanted to write a short post to remind every worker who operates one of these trucks of some basic safety rules and regulations. I don’t care how long you’ve been operating one or how many loads you claimed to dumped in your career. It’s still beneficial to review some of these in order to prevent yourself from looking like an idiot, or worse, injuring yourself or another while on duty.
This list should provide a pretty encompassing look at all the safety tips required to run a dump truck. If you didn’t get the chance to check it out, I also made a parody list called “The 10 Commandments of Dump Trucking” a while back. Hope you took something away from this article. Be safe on in the oilfields!
