Safety Lies in Preparation
Welcome back from yesterday where we began our discussion. Today we return to the scene of potential hazards and how to best prevent them before they ever happen. Today comes #2 in our 5 suggestions for avoiding fatalities this winter.
Snow Cat pre-trip Inspection
Make sure that before those snow cats head to the field they have been thoroughly inspected by a competent person. Critical items include in-motion track checks, drive system tests, electrical safety checks and a full fuel system inspection after summer storage. Mechanical issues can leave crews stranded in remote areas, putting them at great risk of environmental hazards including potentially fatal cold weather injuries.
