National Tank Truck Carriers is offering free access to the “Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention” video developed with the U.S. Department of Transportation with Spanish subtitles added. “While it is a requirement that a tank truck driver be able to speak English, we believe that there is a real safety benefit to providing training in the person’s native language,” says NTTC Chairman Greg Hodgen, Groendyke Transport. “Rollovers happen around the world, and we hope that this video also will be used in Spanish-speaking countries.”
The video focuses on the causes of tank truck rollovers and what actions the driver can take to prevent them. It features tank truck equipment and comments from professional tank truck drivers. Thousands of copies of the original video have been distributed throughout North America, and the video can be downloaded from DOT Websites or from the NTTC Website.
To view the rollover prevention video with Spanish subtitles, go to the NTTC Website at www.tanktruck.org and click on “News and Links.” There also is a link to the original video on the Website. Contact NTTC for a free copy of the video that can be reproduced. “Safety is the key component of NTTC’s mission, and we are happy to make this video available at no cost to anyone it might benefit,” Hodgen says.
