The Next Generation of PPE

On average, a workman's comp finger injury claim

costs a company $7,500.00.

That cost would put a safety bar in every truck of most fleets.

Changing Bad Habits Saves Lives

Posted on November 21, 2013 at 10:28 AM
Dear Highco Safety, I just wanted to send a thank you for keeping me safe.  I was always one of those roll off drivers that pulled on the safety chain to open doors.  A few months back, our company gave us all Boom dog bars and mandated that we use the bar every time we open the roll of door.  Yesterday I used the bar to open the roll off box shown in the picture I sent you.  I released the latch using the bar, and the door still wouldn't open.  I then inserted the claw to pry the door open which moved me further away from the door.  The door released with such violence it swang all the way around and slammed the other side of the box.  The material you see on the ground actually came out sideways and some even bounced toward me.  Fortunately the bar had me 4 or 5 feet away from that opening and debris.  If I had pulled the chain which had been my habit for years, I'm not sure I'd still be here to write you this letter.  Thank you so much for inventing this tool, I think it probably saved my life.

Dear Driver, Glad that the safety measures your company took kept you safe. The best part of work is getting home safely to your family. A mixed load like the one your were hauling needs a professional like yourself.
I don't want to self promote our company, but we have been dealing with transportation and trailers problems for a little bit, a companies desire to get it there quickly and a lack of investment in capital equipment can put the driver at risk and the public. Congrats to your company for putting their people first.
