Heavy truck drivers transport goods and equipment from one location to another, often for the construction industry. They must follow all applicable traffic laws, including securing cargo for transport, using ropes, blocks, chains, or covers. They inspect their trailers before and after the trip and record any defects they find. Keep their trucks and associated equipment clean and in good working order and operate safely in often dangerous construction areas.
