Idealease to sponsor safety clinics

Updated Jan 29, 2018

Idealease and the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) will sponsor a series of one-day private truck fleet safety and compliance seminars called “Navigating Safety and Compliance in 2018.”

The seminars will be held in 27 cities in the U.S. and Canada from March thru October, 2018.

According to Idealease, “Navigating Safety and Compliance in 2018” will help private fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide safety training to their managers, reduce violations and accidents, and understand the compliance requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and National Safety Code (Canada). The 2018 seminar series provides a simplified, step-by-step approach to help attendees understand how to comply with FMCSA regulations, manage commercial motor vehicle safety, and control liability exposures.

The company says virtually all aspects of commercial truck operation are covered including: Electronic Logging Device (ELD) regulation implementation; explanation of the Food Safety Modernization Act; update on FMCSA compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) program; applicability of federal and state safety regulations; driver qualifications; hours of service (drivers’ daily logs), drug and alcohol testing regulations; and vehicle maintenance and inspections.

These seminars deliver up-to-the-minute information that keeps fleet managers thoroughly informed of the motor carrier regulations that affect their operations, and also provides important risk control techniques to maintain insurability and control losses. Attendees also will learn about new and proposed regulatory changes and how to enhance their safety programs above and beyond regulatory requirements. Last year, more than 3,000 private truck fleet professionals attended the Idealease/NPTC Safety Seminars.

All seminar attendees receive the Idealease Guide to Transportation Safety and Compliance, a manual that assists fleet managers with safety and compliance documentation, the Idealease Pre- and Post-Trip Inspection DVD for driver education, and a subscription to the Idealease Safety Bulletin, a weekly safety and compliance email publication.
