Have you performed your GOAL? What is GOAL?
GOAL stands for: Get Out and Look.
What does that mean? Before you start or move a piece of equipment or vehicle it’s important to walk around to make sure there is nothing in front of, behind or under the vehicle. Make sure cargo is secure and nothing is loose on truck bed.
Look around the space you plan to operate or drive. Make sure there are no materials, ditches, vehicles or people around that you can hit or run over.
A simple GOAL takes only a minute. It increases safety and could potentially save thousands of dollars in unexpected damage and expenses.
Pathfinder question: Can you think of a time when GOAL helped you or a crew member?
