Team truck driving safety in truck driving, as a profession, is essential and it is important to do the very best we are capable in this area. As a team, it is important to work together, to pass on vital information to your team member as you end your shift and they start theirs. To do a good pre-trip inspection of your equipment at the start of your shift is important, not only will this validate if your equipment is in good working order, but also give you a good idea of any weak areas you and your partner may need to keep your eye on.
An even more important safety area is you, to make sure you are taking care of your health in this profession. This is a very different kind of profession compared to many others. If it very much a lifestyle more then a profession. For one, you are not working your shift and then going home to your sanctuary of rest, family, hobbies, home projects, social interaction, and all that goes with your home. So to make your truck an enjoyable comfortable place, with ways to keep your family connections current, hobbies and projects to have on your down time, and over all make your truck your “second home” as much as possible will be very beneficial in every way.
