Digital Fuel Log
Refueling happens so frequently that it is easy to get complacent about it. However, it must be remembered that diesel and gasoline are designed to cause explosions—hopefully within an engine. Beyond the act of refueling, further caution needs to be given to fuel fumes and the possibility of spills.
Ensure fuel tanks are clearly marked as “gas” or “diesel” and that the person refueling knows what kind of fuel is needed. This sounds simple, however it is a very expensive mistake!

The Importance of Equipment Maintenance
Small problems grow over time. We’ve all seen it before; something isn’t working exactly the way it used to, but it isn’t affecting our job in a big way, so we continue, sometimes even making adjustments in how we use the piece of equipment to keep things moving. While it may seem like this is the most efficient way to get the job done in the short term, it could cause you major headaches in the future.
If equipment isn’t working properly, you’re increasing your chances of workplace injury as a result of equipment failure. Reporting equipment defects as soon as they are noticed is the key to a safe and efficient work environment. Take time to inspect your vehicles, equipment, machinery, and tools before use. Do not use equipment if it poses a hazard to your health or safety!

Vehicle Pre-Trip Inspection
Take the time to go through with the inspection to help mitigate problems on the road. There is always a chance that something could go wrong even if you’ve never had a problem before. By performing your pre-trip inspections, you’ll save yourself time, money, and potentially your life or someone else’s down the road.
