I’ve met with a lot of folks over the past year and the one question I’ve been asked repeatedly concerns availability of safety training videos. Recently, the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) promoted a new one for bobtail drivers.
PERC believes that, “bobtail drivers are the backbone of the propane industry and that their safety is paramount.” While most all bobtail deliveries are safe and efficient, they do on occasions roll over, damaging the truck and posing a danger to the driver.
“Preventing Bobtail Rollovers,” is a safety program that helps in understanding the factors that contribute to a rollover. It also provides guidelines and tips on what a driver can do to minimize the risk of a rollover. PERC hopes that with preparation before drivers get behind the wheel, bobtail rollovers will be reduced!
This PERC training material includes a DVD with a 22-minute video that can be viewed for free online. Also, PERC can provide a CD that contains a booklet on understanding and preventing bobtail rollovers, a quiz with an answer key, and a certificate of employee completion.
If you would like to purchase any of the materials mentioned above, visit the Propane MaRC Website, or call 866-905-1075.
