Interesting the last place I unloaded fat cattle told me that I needed to follow the new safety sheet before I came back.it said that you had to have a back up beeper  before coming back.after I backed into the chute a employee on a golf cart set a orange cone at the front of my truck as well.I saw a truck that had the chrome pots on each drive wheel with the old dump truck back up alarm which is a mechanical hammer type arraingementt.The sheet also said one item of safety orange or green must be worn at all times while you are out of your truck,management  also stated the safety department is reveiwing the use of hard hats  and I noticed a few guys wearing a plastic hat the looked like a felt cowboy hat  that is actually a hard hat.So I suppose this is because of all that dont turn flashers on while backing up or proceeding down the road into the lots and packing houses with their 4 ways on

Just before you start back, two LONG pulls on the horn as well. Train horns are particularly effective. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
