With the Easter long weekend upon us, we must be mindful of our safety both in and out of the workplace.
Here are our top tips to help you, your family, and colleagues stay safe this long weekend:
1. Stop, think & plan
Plan ahead and identify where you will pull over and rest if driving long distances.
2. Drive professionally
More traffic means more risk, maintain a 5 second following distance, be patient & allow for varied driving conditions.
3. Restrain your load
Ensure you restrain your load appropriately, double-check during your journey.
4. Practice good manual handling
Assess the load, bend the knees, not the back, & when in doubt, ask for help.
5. Be mindful of delivery points
More children will be out and about, take care. When reversing, GET OUT AND LOOK.
6. Fatigue & Driver Health
Ensure that you eat properly, drink plenty of fluid, and get adequate sleep. Revive to stay alive!
