LinkedIn +

Two free jobsite resources for customers in the mining, construction and aggregates industries have been launched by Bridgestone Americas. A pre-shift inspection poster and video provide general guidelines to identify and report irregular tire, rim and wheel conditions early – lowering the cost of OTR tires throughout their lifetime.

“OTR tires face some of the toughest conditions in the world, and at Bridgestone, we are committed to helping our customers work as safely and efficiently as possible – whatever the conditions,” said Rob Seibert, director, marketing, commercial off-the-road tires, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “Whether through our state-of-the-art products or these educational resources, we always strive to deliver a comprehensive approach for our customers to manage their tire assets.”

A regular tire inspection and maintenance program is crucial to safety and productivity. Bridgestone offers guidelines to identify tire conditions easily before every shift, preventing unplanned downtime.

The tire maker recommends customers conduct daily pre-shift inspections and frequent formal inspections utilizing an integrated tire and rim management tracking system. Bridgestone TreadStat software features a mobile inspection app and offers customizable dashboards, making it easy to record and upload inspection data for every tire in a fleet, saving customers time and money.
