rreschran Posted July 15, 2020 Share Posted July 15, 2020 With the news of the recent operator fatality, if you're a company owner, what is your company's seatbelt policy? There are plenty of tow owners who don't believe in seatbelts and don't have a written policy. I personally believe that seatbelts save lives, and, for any tow operator or employee driving a company car is required to wear seatbelts. Looking at my stats, I've confirmed as many as 42-operators killed in some kind of driving accident where they were ejected and killed. Although it's a vehicle code law for nearly all states, what does your company's Employee handbook say about wearing seatbelts? If the handbook doesn't require employees to wear seatbelts, how can you expect them to do so? And to that point, do you ever go looking to see if your employees are following your company's rules and have their seatbelts on? This is the second tower killed this year and within 4-months. R.
