It’s that time again! The CVSA road check is here.
From the CVSA:
International Roadcheck, now in its 28th year, is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 17 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute across North America during a 72-hour period in early June. Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors in every jurisdiction across North America perform the truck and bus inspections.
International Roadcheck is an annual three-day event when CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.
Since its inception in 1988, roadside inspections conducted during Roadcheck have numbered over 1.4 million, resulting in more than 318 lives saved and 5,840 injuries avoided. It also provides an opportunity to educate industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial vehicle operations and the roadside inspection program.
The CVSA is committed to setting everyone up for success by offering several resources such as a Checklist, Safety tips, and even a list of what the CVSA will be looking for when they conduct their inspections.
The #1 one goal is safety.
Here at Liquid Trucking we have a wonderful safety record and we are looking forward to passing all inspections with flying colors. Please remember these three things:
– Check that you have all personal and truck paperwork before heading out each day.
– Communication with the shop is key for any needed repairs.
– Perform careful pre and post trip inspections at the beginning and end of each day.
Making those three things part of your daily work habits will ensue that you’re always safe, and always operating at your best! We appreciate all that you do to drive our success! Are you interested in becoming a driver for Liquid Trucking? We are hiring!
