[North American Pipe Corporation] [TRUCK DRIVER SAFETY ORIENTATION] Welcome to North American Pipe Corporation. Your safety and the safety of our employees, is of the utmost importance. So, we've prepared this brief video to inform you of the safety rules, you are expected to follow. You are a transportation professional, and to know your job. However, we'd like to point out some specific hazards associated with the loading and unloading process, that will help keep you safe while on our property and on your journey to the destination where the pipe will ultimately be unloaded. While this video may not be of the exact site that you are picking up from, the rules are the same at all of our facilities. These rules are mandatory and not debatable. Failure to understand or follow these rules or directions by site personnel, may result in your truck being unloaded or not loaded at all. And you could be sent on your way empty. [ENTERING] When you enter the yard, please follow all signs and the direction of yard personnel and shipping staff regarding, where to park your truck and how to prepare for loading. Always wear a high visibility vest or outerwear when leaving your truck. One will be issued to you if needed. Please return it before you leave. Then report to the shipping office or other area as directed for your safety orientation. Once you have completed watching this safety-orientation video, sign the acknowledgement form and turn it in to the staff. [LOADING] You and any passengers, must stay in the cab at all times until instructed otherwise by shipping personnel. Especially during loading or unloading. When you do leave the cab for inspecting, strapping or tarping, be sure to wear a high visibility vest. No matter how stable it might look, never walk under any suspended load. Never stand near the trailer, when it is being loaded or unloaded especially the opposite side of the forklift as pipe could be accidentally knocked in your direction. Walk around the entire load and observe the bundles to assure the stacks are stable. The banding and package system is intact. And the overall integrity of the load is sound. If a forklift gets near the load while you are checking or securing it, immediately get away and get the forklift operator's attention to determine what their intentions are. Once you throw the straps over the lower or belly layer, confirm whether it is even or uneven. You have a fat or even belly layer when all pipes line up evenly as shown here. [EVEN LOWER LAYER] In this case, always tension the belly straps first, then the top straps, after the second layer is placed. You have an uneven lower layer, when the bundles of pipe do not line up evenly, due to odd numbers or varying diameters. In this case, place the belly straps, but do not tighten them. Return to your truck for the remainder of the loading. When instructed, exit and place the top straps. Then, tension and secure the top straps first. And the belly straps last. Uneven loads must be secured in this order. Here's why: With an uneven lower layer, tensioning the slack belly straps first, can cause the unsecured top layer to tip and shift, sending top bundles of pipe, off the load, and onto you, nearby workers or vehicles. Also, it's very important that you remember to reverse this order when you get to your destination to deliver an uneven load. In this case, unloading and releasing the top straps first, could again result in the top portion of the load shifting and falling. If you have any questions, regarding how to safely secure your load, ask our staff for assistance. [TARPING] If your truck exhaust dumps under the truck chassis, you may or you may not need to tarp your load. This is not up to the discretion of the driver, but the customer. So, while you may have a chassis exhaust, you may still have to tarp your load. First and foremost, follow the directions of the host facility. Most loads must be tarped in the front to prevent smoke damage, and contamination of the inside of the pipe during transit. Always wear all safety equipment, obey all policies and safety instructions given by plant personnel. Use only approved means to gain access to the top of the load to apply your tarp. You may be trained to use a harness and fall protection to tarp your load. Never get on top of a load that is not secured. Never climb the load to gain access to the top or sides. Never jump or use any non-approved means to get off of the load. Use caution, as plastic pipe is slippery, particularly when wet or in icy or snowy conditions. Secure the tarp in the method which will not require access to the top of the load at the delivery location. At North American Pipe, we value the safety of everyone who enters our facilities. We appreciate you cooperation and conformance to these simple rules. And remembering the potential hazards as you secure and unload our product. Please use the information we've provided to help yourself and others to ensure a safe, successful trip.
