Do Your Fleet Vehicles Have Usable Safety Equipment?

Jim Luff
Posted on January 14, 2015
We all go through a thorough pre-trip inspection and make sure that we have a First Aid kit, a fire extinguisher, spare tire, jack, flares or triangles and other emergency use items. But how often do you check the condition of these individually? When was the last time you opened a First Aid kit to check the conditions of the contents? Are they old? Are packages ripped open and no longer usable? Is the fire extinguisher tagged and tested in the last year? Has it been discharged and put back in the vehicle without recharging? These are all things you don't want to find out about during an emergency.  How about that spare? Does it really have air in it? The next time you have a considerable amount of downtime at a concert or sporting event, why not perform a detailed inspection of the safety equipment and make sure it is functional and usable?

    I agree that safety should be important for every person and especially when it comes to your car. Not only getting safety inspections but getting all the safety items you need in your car, such as a First Aid Kit. https://www.tregsmithsautos.com.au/roadworthy-safety-certificates-toowoomba
