At Hoosier Energy, being “Safe by Choice” is an employee mindset. Being safe on the job or on the road is important. That is why we ask you to be sure to follow these tips when around snow plows, emergency vehicles or electric utility vehicles if the weather takes a turn for the worse this winter.
GIVE ‘EM SPACE
Don’t crowd snow plows, emergency vehicles or electric utility trucks on the road. Let them do their job.
The road behind an active snow plow provides a safer road surface to drive on.
BACK IT UP
Don’t tail closely behind snow plows. This will help keep road salt from being sprayed onto your vehicle.
Expect changes in visibility if traveling near snow plows as they can create snow clouds.
