BETHESDA, MD. [Mar.7, 2000] -To promote a better understanding of the CVSA inspection proceedures and Out-of-Service criteria, the CVSA is conducting a series of seminars intended to clear up any misunderstandings. During these seminars, an expert instructor carefully reviews all of the steps necessary for a commercial vehicle to pass a roadside inspection and earn a CVSA decal.
“Anyone who attends this seminar will learn how to detect all safety related defects on a truck and take steps to prevent them from occurring while the truck is operating on the highway,” says Steve Campbell, CVSA’s Executive Director. “Most importantly, it will reduce the likelihood of a crash.”
In addition, Campbell points out that the information gained at the seminar will help reduce expensive roadside downtime and help improve a carrier’s overall safety record, thus reducing the likelihood of future enforcement actions such as federal, state or provincial regulatory compliance reviews.
The cost of the full day seminar, is $200. Registration is open to anyone with responsibility for maintaining the condition of the carrier’s fleet. This includes company
owners, safety and risk managers, company drivers, owner-operators, and maintenance managers.
The Toronto date is May 25, and the event is sponsored by Brake Pro Ltd.
No further Canadian dates are planned at this time, but arrangements can be made to sponsor an information seminar in any jurisdiction. Call the CVSA to inquire.
