Description

Regular vehicle inspections and a proactive truck maintenance program can help you control costs and keep drivers safe while on the road. Your maintenance program is essential to discovering unsafe conditions before they cause an accident or lead to a costly breakdown — not to mention fines or being put out of service during a roadside inspection.

At this HNI University workshop, a former FMCSA inspector will discuss critical elements of an effective vehicle maintenance program and share areas where many motor carriers fall short.

PART 385 – ACUTE & CRITICAL HANDOUT FOR MAINTENANCE

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? A man at a bus stop, John Posnakidis, 42, was killed at the bottom of the South Eastern Freeway in the Adelaide Hills by an out-ofcontrol truck, in October 2010. He said the brakes of the semi-trailer were worn out. "I could have put my hand out the window and the truck would have slowed down better," he told the hearing. "That trailer had no brakes whatsoever."
