Trainee must be able to explain and demonstrate a thorough pre-trip inspection. Trainee must understand the company’s inspection expectations are as follows:
Conduct a proper Pre-Trip inspection before operating any equipment.
Submit a daily Electronic Inspection Report on all equipment operated.
Notify the shop if they discover an item that is a safety issue or an OOS issue. Refer to the Playbook for contact information.
Ask trainee if he/she knows what the most common CSA violations are.
CSA = Compliance * Safety * Accountability
Most common CSA violations include:
State: Did you know that these most common violations are 100% preventable?
How can they be 100% preventable? Answer: By doing Pre-Trip Inspections 100% of the time.
Define what is a proper pre-trip? Why is this important? Share with trainee either a personal experience or experience from someone you know about getting delayed at a scale for something that was OOS and how that affected you.
Tell trainee how to conduct a proper pre-trip and have trainee repeat what he/she heard.
Show trainee how to do a proper pre-trip then have the trainee demonstrate what he/she just observed. NOTE: Introduce the Zonar tablet first and demonstrate the use of the Tablet for the inspection.
Can also show the safety aspect with a video of a tire rolling down the road. The tire has just come off a tractor/trailer.
