Now is a good time to remind drivers to follow the 3 Point rule while getting in and out of their trucks.
During the winter months footing conditions are compromised and the chance of slipping or falling is increased.
The 3 Point rule is simply that you keep three out of four of your contact points (hands and feet) secured to keep from slipping or falling. When exiting a truck, for example, one hand on the cab handle, one hand gripping interior door handle and one foot on a step while the other foot is in transition, by doing this you always maintain three points of contact.
