Safety will always be a top priority for companies. Regarding employees that drive cargo vans, some of the biggest concerns are securing loose cargo and protecting the driver from shifting loads in the back in the event of a sudden stop. Partitions, secured bins, portable parts cases, locking drawers, storage cabinets, and rubber floor mats are a few solutions to help accomplish these safety goals.
When we dig a little deeper, we also think about the safety of our employees and other drivers when vehicles are parked on the side of the road. Safety lights are another excellent example of improving the vehicle’s visibility when pulled over.
Getting in and out of the van is another touchpoint in keeping employees safe from harm and less fatigued. The simple addition of assist steps and grab handles helps drivers get in and out of the vehicle easier with less risk of injury to themselves. The assistance of grab handles helps reduce fatigue when getting in and out of the van frequently.
Fire extinguishers, warning triangles, and flares are other key safety components. We can never be too safe when it comes to driver safety, and it should always remain a priority; we can help with solutions to keep your drivers safe.
