Steps, Handles, & Deck Plates

Collisions with other vehicles or single-vehicle accidents can lead to very serious injuries to truck drivers. However, most of the injuries in the trucking industry do not involve collisions. They are the result of slip-and-fall accidents.

Truck drivers work in all weather conditions and at all hours of the day and night. The footing can be icy or wet. The lighting is frequently poor. Rushing to complete a task, poor procedures and/or loss of situational awareness can lead to slips and falls that can cause severe injury.

This guide is intended to help truckers reduce—and hopefully avoid—the most common slip-and-fall accidents.
