SAFETY TIP FOR TODAY
PRETTY MUCH A REHASH OF THE PAST , BUT YOU NEED TO BE READY, BECAUSE DOT IS READY AND YOU ARE THE ONE PAYING THOSE FINES OR SITTING ALONGSIDE THE ROAD WAITING FOR A REPAIR TRUCK...
Make sure you have your driver’s license and current medical card on you at all time.
Make sure you have a copy of the Qualcomm instruction sheet to provide to the officer if requested. It is CSA violation if you don’t have it.
Be sure you know how to request your logs to be faxed to the officer.
Make sure your equipment is not defective. Some of the most common defects are brake issues, lights not working and damaged tires.
If hauling a hazmat load, you must make sure your bills are correct and readily accessible, the trailer is properly placarded, the load is secure, and that you have your emergency response guide with the bills.
Turn in or send your roadside inspections to your safety department
