Colonial Parking’s Facility Care team is often on the move and they bring big equipment with them. Whether they’re collecting trash in a pickup truck, or hauling an industrial sweeping machine from one location to the next, they are often maneuvering large equipment and trailers through Colonial parking garages and DC streets.
Safety is always at the forefront of our operations, so our Facility Care team is regularly trained and re-trained on best practices and safety measures when dealing with large equipment. This past weekend, our team received specialized training on hauling trailers.
The class, administered by AAA, covered driving and trailer safety, methods to ensure proper weight distribution, trailer turning and parking. Though the team already had a handle on these lessons, it was good to brush up on the basics and reiterate proper procedures. Thanks to AAA for coming out and teaching us; the team learned a lot.
