(2) The seat for the operator must be so arranged that he has an unobstructed exit from both sides and the rear.
(3) The bunk support must be so constructed that the operator has a clear view ahead at all times.
(4) Adequate means of communication must be provided between the operator and the truck driver.
(5) Eye protection and respirator must be provided for the operator.
(6) The trailer must be equipped with fenders or splash plates to protect the operator from mud and dust so far as possible.
