Ned,
Go to UPSers.com. Click on My Workspace, then go to Health and Safety Resources. Everything is there, its titled "Backing Up Safely".

get out and check

While I understand the theory behind this one, by the time you climb your fat body back into the package car, just about anything could have entered the space behind your package car from the other side.

Dont back unless absolutely necessary is always a good rule.

got this off UPSERs.com

-Back only when necessary Evaluate and assess the area if you must back back immediately and to the driver s side
-Before and during backing, scan the areas your vehicle will be approaching
-Tap your horn continuously to signal your intentions
-AVOID BLINDSIDE BACKING, WHICH CAUSES YOUR VEHICLE TO MOVE TO THE RIGHT AND BLOCK YOUR LINE OF SIGHT
-Never back into driveways and be aware of children in residential areas after every delivery,
-Use the rear-view camera monitor as a third mirror.

1. don't back
2. back first
3. visually clear the area
4. back at a controlled speed
5. tap horn every 4 seconds
6. check both mirrors and rear vision camera
7. driver's side (sight side) most preferred
8. straight back
9. blind side, least preferred
10. back only as far as necessary

If something obstructs your vision, get out and look

That's the list that was given to me and I stuck to my mailbox. The number 1 rule of backing is always, DON'T.

One thing to also consider about backing. In most states it is illegal to back out of a driveway onto a road. Not a rule, but if you remember, always back first if you have to back at all. After the delivery, you never ever never want to be backing first.

this is how we have it.

1. Back only when necessary.

2. If you must back, back first.

3. Back to driver`s side.

4. Before and during backing , scan the areas your vehicle will be approaching.

5. Tap your horn continuously to signal your intentions.

6. Use your rear-view camera monitor as a third mirror.

My fellow drivers, we really need to know the rules of backing.
What the previous poster didn't know, is there are actually only 5 rules of backing

If you are to get into an accident, statistically it will be a backing accident. When you do get into an accident, your sup. will be on car with you the next day quizing you on this and every other method you must know.

There are five rules to backing. Somebody here posted 10?. You can rememeber them by just going through the process menatlly. Just think about how you would do it yourself everyday and the rules are easy to recite. This is how it should be.

So when I get to a stop that might require a back , I:

1. Back only when necessary(don't back)
2. Back first and to the driver's side (sight side)
3. Visually clear the back. (scan the area)
4. Tap you horn to signal your intentions.
5. Use the camera as a 3rd mirror.

Can you believe we actually backed without the camera 7 short years ago?
