Vehicle Inspections and Maintenance
Proper vehicle inspections and truck maintenance can assist you in controlling costs for your organization and keep your drivers, as well as other motorists, safe on the road. Insuring your drivers understand how to perform a thorough pre-trip inspection at the beginning of their work day, a walk around inspection each time they park their vehicle and a post-trip inspection at the end of their work day is the best practice to teach your drivers. Not only are vehicle inspections a good idea – they are a requirement. This along with a top-notch preventative maintenance program will keep your equipment in good shape and on the road.
Insure your drivers and maintenance team understand the importance of vehicle inspections and preventative maintenance to determine unsafe conditions and mechanical problems before they cause accidents or breakdowns. Circumvent being placed out of service during a DOT roadside inspection, or subjected to heavy fines for infractions found during an inspection. Discovering unsafe conditions or mechanical problems before they become critical issues are crucial to maintaining control of costs for your organization. Your drivers will benefit, your equipment will be protected, your organization’s reputation will remain in good standing with your customers, and your CSA BASIC scores will remain low.
