Logistics service provider, Qube Bulk, visited Warwick State High School in Queensland to speak with senior students about truck safety on the road.
Qube stated via social media that its key messages were 'Don't cut in front' (ensuring adequate braking distances) and 'Avoid blind spots'.
"Year 11 and 12 students either have or will be soon obtaining their driver's licences, so it is an ideal time to provide knowledge and tips on interacting with trucks," a Qube spokesperson said.
A triple road train and a B-double were set up on site with vehicles parked in their left-hand side blind spots, according to Qube Bulk. Students were invited to sit in the driver’s seat to experience blind spots first-hand.
The students also learnt about the Qube in-cab fatigue system that is used across the Qube fleet to manage driver safety. Students were also provided with information on possible career path options within the logistics and transport sector.
Queensland Police Service were also in attendance and presented on road safety.
