During the 10-year period from 2008 to 2017, 131 truck drivers were killed and almost 21,000 injured on the job.
To reduce the risks of these workers being hurt or killed, WorkSafeBC has recently created three videos that reinforce key safety practices for the most common injuries:
- How to properly exit a cab – Meet Arvind Chander, a long-haul truck driver. What would happen if Arvind was injured on the job?
- How to properly use a pry bar – Meet Donna Marksen, a delivery truck driver. What would happen if Donna was injured on the job?
- How to properly use landing gear – Meet Joe Frominsky, a short-haul truck driver. What would happen if Joe was injured on the job?
