Idealease and the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) have teamed up to offer a series of seminars throughout the U.S. and Canada this year. The seminars, titled Safety & Compliance Simplified, will occur in 24 cities from February through May.

They will focus on helping private fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide safety training to manager, reduce violations and satisfy FMCSA compliance.

“The Idealease/NPTC 2013 safety and compliance seminars thoroughly cover the latest changes in Compliance, Safety, Accountability, the FMCSA program designed to promote compliance and reduce losses and fatalities in the U.S.,” said Dave Helge, Idealease vice president of maintenance and safety.

The seminars provide a simplified, step-by-step approach to help attendees understand how to comply with FMCSA regulations, manage motor vehicle safety and control liability exposures. Topics covered will include driver screening tools, driver qualifications, hours of service and driver logs, drug and alcohol testing rules, vehicle maintenance and inspection, accident recordkeeping and CSA.

All attendees receive the Idealease Guide to Transportation Safety and Compliance that assists fleet managers with safety and compliance documentation. They will also receive the Idealease Pre- and Post-Trip Inspection DVD and a subscription to the Idealease Safety Bulletin, a weekly email safety and compliance publication.
