Idealease of Detroit/Flint is sponsoring a free truck fleet safety and compliance seminar from later this month to offer customers vital safety information.
Set for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 26, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Southfield, Mich., the company says the one-day seminar will help truck fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide current best practices training to their managers, reduce violations and accidents, and satisfy annual Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliance requirements.
The seminar is presented by Idealease in partnership with the National Private Truck Council (NPTC). Idealease is a fully integrated transportation solutions provider that delivers expertise, responsiveness and stability to the truck transportation industry. Idealease is the leader in comprehensive safety and compliance seminars for private fleets.
Organizers say the seminar 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. Virtually all aspects of commercial truck operation are covered, including: FMCSA driver screening tools, driving qualifications, hours of service (drivers’ daily logs), drug and alcohol testing rules, vehicle maintenance and inspection, accident recordkeeping and CSA.
After attending the seminar, organizers say private truck fleet professionals will have current information to help manage fleet safety for all major areas scrutinized during state and federal compliance interventions and reviews. The seminar’s step-by-step approach simplifies compliance with federal and state regulations, hours of service (drivers’ daily logs), drug and alcohol testing rules, vehicle maintenance and inspection, accident recordkeeping, and driver qualifications. Attendees also learn about new and proposed regulatory changes and how to enhance their safety programs above and beyond regulation requirements.
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 e-mail publication, the company adds.
