Bicycle and Tricycle Safety
Bicycle and Tricycle Safety
This course will introduce the bicycle operator to the safe usage, care and operating rules while riding bicycles at Toronto Operations Distribution Centres.

Why do we have bicycles in the DC's?
Pre-use Inspection
As there is no infolink on any type of bike, the operator must do a practical pre-use inspection before use.
Why is Bicycle Safety Training Necessary?
The MOL states that there must be some formal instruction implemented for any equipment used in the workplace. This covers everything from safety belts, utility knives and obviously power equipment.
In conclusion...
Green Logistics Consortium recognized CTC for using bicycles in their facilities.
GLC deals with ways of lowering workplace carbon footprints.

Here at AJ, we have bicycles in use for several purposes. We have stockman 2 wheel bikes, FAST team bikes and maintenance bikes. All the bikes in use must follow the same safety rules as all power equipment.

Bicycles with 2 wheels must be walked across the towline (towveyor) in the Receiving areas in AJ at the designated crossings only.

Bicycle/tricycles must cross the towline (towveyor) at an angle to prevent wheel from entering towveyor channel.

Towveyor Crosswalks and Signage

FAST members may enter the main aisle to respond to emergencies in the pick modules on their bicycle. The AGV Operator will be contacted by the Crew Lead/Throughput Manager initiating the call for FAST to have the AGVs shut down.
Maintenance and FAST members will not use the main aisle as a travel route when responding to emergencies in other parts of the building.
At no time will any bicycle or tricycle ride or be left parked between the red lines marking the danger zone for any reason.

Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV)

Maintenance employees who must enter the main aisle with their tricycle to complete work in the pick modules must contact the AGV Operator at 5424 and advise them that they will be entering the main aisle with their tricycle.

Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV)

There are special rules for operating bicycles around AGV’s:

No bicycle or tricycle may enter the main aisles running east to west in front of pick module 1 to pick module 13 or any area identified with AGV Operations restricted area signs to travel between buildings or to access the area with the following emergency exceptions:

Emergency access to the area by bicycle or tricycle is allowed by FAST members and Maintenance members when guidelines are followed.
