Flatbed Tarping – The Dangers of Tarping Flatbed Loads
The work life of flatbed truck drivers is dangerous enough considering they drive America’s roadways everyday. But that’s not the only dangers these drivers encounter. Even something that sounds simple-covering a load with a tarp can lead to sever injury or even death.
Tarping flatbed loads is a difficult and dangerous task, especially when it is done manually. Walking on top of unstable or uneven loads is a risk that can lead to tragic falls. The tarps themselves are often heavy and unwieldy creating an ergonomic nightmare.
