    Always have the emergency brake in your truck on & wheel chocks in place (I put them in front of the front wheels, and on my trailer wheels now) while driving your tractor onto a trailer. If the back end of the truck comes up/gets light while you're still on the backend of the trailer and you don't have the brake on/chocks in place, the truck can start rolling forward.

    I think most of us can agree on that if someone reads this safety related tread and in the future it keeps just one person from getting injured or killed it was worth it.
    Will be looking forward to other posters advise or experiences.

    Here's mine....When getting off a tractor with engine running, DON'T

    Why anyone would get off a tractor while it running is beyond me. Number one it cost nothing to turn the tractor off and number two it takes a few seconds to restart it.

    Now for some of the many things that can go wrong.

    1 - It can slip into gear as you exit and can run you over.
    2 - It can slip in gear and shoot off down.
    3 - You can trip getting off hit the shifter and roll under the tires.
    4 - You can hook a pant leg while it drops in gear and drags your lifeless body down the road till you hit a tree.
    5 - You can slip hit your head fall onto the shifter lunging th tractor forward till you crash.
    6- You can hit the fuel pedal on an auto tractor lunging it forward at the same time throwing you off under the read wheels.

    For tractor work...
    "load light - carry low"

    For chain work...
    When attaching a slip hook around any item, face the hook opening away from the direction of travel.

    better bet is to block the rear of the trailer.. that KEEPS it from unloading the rear of the truck.. etc.

    and when using a chain, lay a piece of carpet over the chain, or slip it thru a fire hose. it helps to arrest sling and backlash if the chain breaks.
