Oregon OSHA Looking at Tarping Falls
December 04, 2000
The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration is asking carriers if tarping loads poses a safety hazard for drivers.
According to the Oregon Trucking Assn.
, the agency is considering regulations aimed at protecting drivers from falling while tarping loads. The rules being considered would apply to shippers with loads that must be tarped. They would only impact trucking operations that have a facility where flatbed shipments are loaded and tarped.
