A free online training course on loading and unloading exclusion zones is available, thanks to the LUEZ Project Steering Committee.
The industry steering committee includes organisations like K&S Freighters, OneSteel, Linfox, AkzoNobel and WorkSafe Victoria. It released its best practice loading, unloading exclusion zone (LUEZ) guidelines in February 2011.
The safety of truck drivers and other personnel around mobile plant during loading and unloading is a significant safety issue confronting all businesses in the supply chain.
The online training course will run in any web browser without the need for special software, and covers issues like:
- the separation of people and equipment;
- who should control loading and unloading;
- line of sight; and
- safety controls and warning devices.
The course is a must for anyone who wants to reduce the risk of LUEZ incidents in their workplace.
