Safety Spotlight: September 26, 2014

Safety Message to all drivers…This is a email I received from one of our customers. “This email is a reminder that ALL GAF loads REQUIRE edge protectors or V-boards on every piece of product that is touched by a securement strap. NO EXCEPTIONS We have seen to many freight claims recently, because drivers are not following this procedure. Please make sure all your drivers are equipped with enough V-boards at all times and are using them.” As you see it is not just Cypress requiring you to use corner protectors or V-boards the customers also require it.  If you don’t have enough stop by the terminal, if at shipper borrow from another Cypress/Sunbelt driver.  There is no excuse not to use them and getting harder to explain to the customer why a driver did not use one as required.  Good Morning and have a safe weekend……
