For Immediate Release
PMTC announces Ontario Regional Seminar for October 17th
Milton, ON: The PMTC’s next regional half-day seminar will be in Mississauga, Ontario, on October 17th, running from 8:30 to 11:30am. The seminar will cover three diverse topics that will provide value that fleets, and suppliers alike can take back to their workplace to help improve their operations.
An overview of National ELD Regulations and the progress of the NELT file
The PMTC has been heavily involved in stakeholder consultations with government on both the Electronic logging device file and the Mandatory Entry level Training file from the very beginning. The ELD regulation was posted in Gazette 2 and is set to come into force on June 12th of 2021. The National Entry Level Training file is currently in its consultation phase and is expected to be imbedded in the National Safety Code in January of 2020. Mike Millian, the President of the PMTC, will provide an update on what the regulations look like, and what fleets can expect to have to comply with and when.
US FMCSA Drug & Alcohol Clearing House
Branden Kearse, Privacy & Compliance Coordinator at DriverCheck, will discuss the upcoming United States Drug and Alcohol Clearing House Program that comes into effect on January 6th of 2020 for all Carriers and Drivers who operate into the US. If you are a driver or carrier do you know your responsibilities? Who has to register, where to register and other important details that will affect your compliance in the Untied States? This is the place to be to find out from the experts.
Truck pre-screening and weigh station pre-clearance
Earlier this year, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation deployed commercial vehicle pre-screening and weigh station pre-clearance technology in Ontario, in collaboration with connected truck leaders Intelligent Imaging Systems (IIS) and Drivewyze. In this presentation you will learn about the pre-screening systems now in place at a number of weigh stations in the province, which automatically scan trucks for bad brakes, weigh them while they are in motion, and which use advanced imaging systems to recognize trucks and look up inspection history and safety ratings. You will also learn about Drivewyze Pre Clear, a weigh station bypass service that permits carriers with good safety records to avoid being pulled into scales every single visit. Combined, the pre-screening and pre-clearance systems work to improve commercial truck safety and efficiency in Ontario. At the conclusion of the presentation, officials from the MTO and Drivewyze will field your questions.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for this seminar, starting at $300.00.
