Idealease, in partnership with the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), will present “Safety & Compliance Simplified” seminars in 24 cities across the U.S. and Canada beginning in February and through May.
The seminars are aimed at helping private truck fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide safety training to their managers, reduce violations and accidents and satisfy annual Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliance requirements.
Dave Helge, Idealease Vice President of Maintenance and Safety, said the seminars would thoroughly cover the latest changes in Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA).
The goal of the 2013 seminars, Idealease said, is to provide 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.
Areas covered in the seminars include FMCSA driver screening tools, driver qualifications, hours of service, drug and alcohol testing rules, vehicle maintenance and inspection, accident recordkeeping and CSA.
“After attending the Idealease one-day Safety and Compliance seminar,” Helge said, “private truck fleet professionals are aware of the current industry safety rules and regulations and have the knowledge and tools needed to comply with the regulations, control their liability exposure and take their safety and compliance program to a much higher level.”
All attendees will receive the Idealease Guide to transportation Safety and Compliance 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.
