6. Transport Driver Protection
The safety for all IAA Customers, Vendors, Contractors, Transporters, and Towers is a critical priority to IAA. To help keep our Transporters and Towers safe while picking up vehicles in IAA’s pullout areas, new outdoor signage will be at IAA locations in the coming weeks. Infographic signs will remind all individuals of our mandatory safety standards including:
- Safety vest is required at all times
- Do not stand under loader forks
- Do not stand on truck when a vehicle is loading
- Maintain eye contact with the loader
- Stay at least 10 feet away from the loader
