Minimize Hazards for Truck Drivers

Truck drivers transporting loads from site to site are also at high risk for tarp-handling injuries from overexertion, awkward postures, and same-level falls and falls from equipment. Overall, 8 percent of all injuries in trucking come from tarping. With only 14 percent of total trucking miles coming from flatbed operations--where most tarping occurs--it's an area of concern for truck operators.
