Please be advised that all drivers MUST wear an ANSI Class 2 Safety Vest or Safety Shirt when at any time they are exiting their truck anywhere on the terminal. We have noticed a number of drivers wearing vests and yellow or orange shirts that are not ANSI Class 2.
This is an OSHA requirement. It is currently our policy that everyone on the terminal must be in compliance. Please be advised that this policy will be strictly enforced starting September 1, 2019. Please be sure that your drivers are aware and have the proper safety vest or shirt, and that it is worn properly. Examples shown of ANSI Class 2 vests and shirts. They must be fluorescent yellow or orange only. Non-compliance will result in disciplinary action and or no service. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
