Safety Moment - January 2019
A Moving Vehicle Is Only Safe When Its Stationary
Moving vehicles are common in everyday life, but that doesn’t mean we are safe when we’re near them.
Being struck by a moving vehicle, even at low speed, can be fatal.
Always follow our SHE Golden Rules:
•Comply with all customer site rules.
•Always use designated pedestrian routes where available.
•Always remain alert, aware of vehicle movements and never assume a driver has seen you.
•Wear high visibility clothing (illuminated LED vest) when working in, or entering, any operational environment where commercial vehicles / plant operate.
•Pedestrians must not use mobile phones or audio devices in vehicle operating areas unless they can do so safely in a designated pedestrian area.
