Servicing A Truck Engine

December 19, 2013 Dave Weber No Comments

Here we have a photo showing a truck mechanic servicing an engine. See any hazards? We see two.

1. Mechanics often have grease or oil on their shoes. Crawling around on the truck frame like this could easily result in a fall to the concrete floor.
2. Notice how the mechanic is reaching while bent over 90% at the waist. Over time, this could certainly result in a low back injury to the employee.
