Kinedyne on Thursday announced the institution of the inaugural International Cargo Securement Awareness month.
Kinedyne says this organized observance is meant to draw attention to the critical role that proper load securement plays in commercial shipping and to help the industry prepare for CVSA’s 2017 International Roadcheck, which takes place from June 6-8, 2017, in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world. This year, the Roadcheck’s special category violation emphasis is again on cargo securement; when this category was last the focus, in 2015, almost 2,500 cargo securement-related citations were issued.
“Kinedyne wants to remind everyone that conforming to good safety practices is the responsibility of every fleet and owner-operator in North America,” says Paul Wolford, vice president of sales and marketing for Kinedyne. “It is also the responsibility of every vehicle owner/user to establish programs to train operators, inspection and maintenance personnel in accordance with all applicable standards, regulations, and laws.”
In the spirit of supporting safety to drivers and the general public, Kinedyne is sponsoring the first annual International Cargo Securement Awareness Month. Kinedyne says its sponsorship of this event is a continuation of its training and support throughout a half-century of uncompromising commitment to the highest level of quality and service.
Kinedyne will offer a free one-hour cargo securement regulation training webinar at 11 a.m. EDT on May 30. The webinar, titled “A Survivor’s Guide for Cargo Securement Inspections During International Roadcheck 2017,” will follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. The webinar’s goal is to reduce infractions during the CVSA International Roadcheck enforcement event.
Additionally, Kinedyne says the webinar will be a comprehensive instructional presentation that provides attendees with an in-depth understanding of FMCSA regulations and how these impact International Roadcheck conformity. Kinedyne will also touch on content dealing exclusively with the Canadian market and with regulations set forth by the country’s National Safety Code Standard 10 – Cargo Securement (NSC10), the company says.
