No matter how much you drive, backing up can be a challenge. People who drive for work may drive forwards for tens of thousands of miles/kilometers in a year, but may only back up one or two miles/kilometers in the same period! This fact, combined with other issues such as speed, poor visibility and driver distraction result in the fact that approximately 25% of vehicle accidents happen while vehicles are backing up.
Regularly scheduled workplace inspections are one of the main tools available to companies to ensure that new and ongoing hazards are identified, and that workers are kept safe and healthy. In this course, you will learn how to plan and conduct efficient workplace inspections.
