FALCONER, N.Y. — With US inspection agencies stepping up enforcement of CSA (Compliance, Safety and Accountability), Truck-Lite has developed a training program aimed at keeping its customers’ lighting products in compliance.
The ‘For CSA, Choose Wisely – Choose Truck-Lite’ training program consists of multiple resources and tools, including a Roadside Repair Kit that will include all the tools required to do an emergency roadside repair.
“Vehicle lighting is a prominent area of emphases in the CSA vehicle maintenance category acting as a flag to enforcement and potentially leading to a vehicle review. The importance in specifying and using reliable and trustworthy products should be given significant attention,” said Truck-Lite’s vice-president of marketing, Bob Ives. “At Truck-Lite, we don’t just sell you a light, we work with you to provide lighting solutions and training that gives you confidence and peace of mind.”
The tool kits will be available at trade shows throughout the year, including some that will be raffled off. The new training program also includes a CSA lighting brochure which outlines the FMCSA regulations as well as a dedicated Web site that answers frequently asked CSA lighting questions. The program will be officially launched at next week’s Mid-America Trucking Show.
Meanwhile, Truck-Lite urges customers to consider the following three recommendations: upgrade to a lifetime LED lighting and wiring system for improved reliability; make a pre-trip inspection mandatory, including the inspection of all lighting, and consider taking a cloth to rear lighting to ensure it’s as visible as possible; and carry a roadside repair kit in every truck so repairs can be conducted on the spot. Truck-Lite’s Roadside Repair Kit includes three LED lights and the tools required to replace them in a vinyl zippered 12×8.5″ bag.
