If we pay attention to the world around us, we notice that an assembled set of components results in the machines used to assist us in completing our daily tasks. Mechanically speaking, we can observe gears which make up cogs which in turn set the machine in motion. However, when there is a missing or defective gear then the cog becomes paralyzed thus impeding the machine’s function.
As a mechanic, every day, you have to find new solutions to the problems you encounter. You are reflective, rigorous, and logical, and we know that it is not always that simple...
In a world where we are more and more “connected,” technology plays a major role in the working environment. Do you remember when we were introduced to the “internet” for the first time? This novelty was not so long ago, it has only been about twenty-three years! It’s the same for the trucking industry! New advances in truck equipment happen every day and these innovations change the work environment for refuse trucks and drivers’ safety.
Whether you are picking up household waste in isolated villages, driving children to school early in the morning, or delivering to customers awaiting their orders, drivers are almost always on the road. The open road can be great, but sometimes, the conditions can change to much less than favorable in a matter of minutes or even a couple miles.
