Tire Safety Week to Begin with Training Video on OSHA Compliance


Michelin in conjunction with the Tire Industry Association released a truck tire training video that will help fleet operators, tire shop managers and maintenance technicians handle their tires in the safest way possible.

The video, titled “Tire Shop Hazard Assessment,” helps to kick off National Tire Safety Week, which is held June 5-11. It covers various OSHA regulations, including one on personal protective equipment, and how to protect yourself from workplace injuries.

“When tires do not get the proper care, handling or maintenance in the shop, it can easily lead to property damage or personal injury,” said Doug Jones, MATT customer engineering support manager. “Michelin and TIA want to remind tire shops of safety procedures, industry requirements and best practices to help ensure the safest possible work environment.”

This is the fourth video produced by TIA and Michelin, which are all available on the Michelin Truck Tires YouTube channel, as well as the Michelin America’s Truck Tires and TIA Web sites.
