mirror check station

Mirror Check Station

Risk Management Group

mirror check station1
Mirror Check Station
  • Backing and sideswipes are two of the most frequent types of truck accidents. These accidents differ from others because the hazard was either behind or to the side, not in front!
    • This is one reason it is imperative to ensure that mirrors are properly adjusted.
why set up a mirror check station
Why set up a Mirror Check Station??
  • To ensure drivers see what they need to see
  • To ensure mirrors complement each other
  • To ensure overlap
  • To reveal objects in the “No Zone”
mirror check station set up
Mirror Check Station Set-up
  • A mirror check station is a set of painted lines and boxes on the ground that serves as targets for mirror adjustments.

    • Position the truck as close to Line A as possible.
    • Stop the truck with the driver’s side mirror over Line B.
    • Rotate each flat mirror horizontally.
    • Tilt each flat mirror vertically.
    • Rotate each convex mirror horizontally.
