Carriers are required to maintain a minimum level of maintenance on their vehicles in order to meet regulatory compliance standards. Additionally, this maintenance must be documented in such a manner that a facility audit can be satisfied and due diligence can be demonstrated.
Building on the experience gained through the Fleet Driver Trainer Course, this workshop involves a review of the minimum forms and files that are required to document the vehicle maintenance process. Regulatory compliance issues in the context of the following will be discussed:
- CVSA Standard Level 1 – Mechanical Inspections;
- Excerpts from the Highway Traffic Act;
- Excerpts from Ontario Regulations pertaining to equipment; and
- Safety inspection and performance standards.
Upon successful completion, participants will be able to:
- understand the purpose and structure of maintaining a maintenance profile;
- know the basic structure and terminology of the legislation and be able to reference appropriate sections;
- identify the critical operating and regulatory compliance issues related to maintenance profiles; and
- apply compliance strategies to actual profile maintenance.
