Safety seminars focus on federal regulatory and compliance changes

Idealease and National Private Truck Council (NPTC) have partnered to sponsor a private truck fleet safety and compliance seminar called “Delivering Safety Every Mile” in 37 cities in the U.S. and Canada through October of this year.

The goal of the one-day seminar is to help private truck fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide safety training to their managers, reduce violations and accidents, and understand the compliance requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.

According to an Idealease press release, the seminar provides a step-by-step approach to help attendees understand how to comply with FMCSA regulations, manage commercial motor vehicle safety, and control liability exposures. Most 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, 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, according to the release. Attendees also will learn about new and proposed regulatory changes and how to enhance their safety programs above and beyond regulation requirements, the release stated.

All seminar attendees will 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.
