News Release from Idealease

North Barrington, IL
Idealease, Inc., in partnership with the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), is sponsoring a private truck fleet safety and compliance seminar called “The Changing World of Technology, Safety & Compliance” in 28 cities in the U.S. and Canada from March thru October, 2016. The one-day seminar will help private truck fleet professionals maintain a safe fleet, provide safety training to their managers, reduce violations and accidents, and understand the compliance requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.


The 2016 seminar provides a simplified, step-by-step approach to help attendees understand how to comply with FMCSA regulations, manage commercial motor vehicle safety, and control liability exposures. Topics that will be covered in this year’s seminar series are: Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Regulation Implementation; 2-hour required drug and alcohol supervisor training with certification; review of new and proposed regulations; update on FMCSA Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) program; applicability of federal and state safety regulations; driver qualifications; drug and alcohol testing regulations; vehicle maintenance and inspections; and, how to enhance your safety program beyond regulations.

After attending the seminar, private truck fleet professionals will have current information to help manage fleet safety for all major areas scrutinized during state and federal compliance interventions and reviews. The seminar’s step-by-step approach simplifies compliance with federal and state regulations, hours of service (drivers’ daily logs), drug and alcohol testing rules, vehicle maintenance and inspection, accident recordkeeping, and driver qualifications. Attendees also learn about new and proposed regulatory changes and how to enhance their safety programs above and beyond regulation requirements. Last year, more than 3,000 people attended this comprehensive seminar.

All seminar attendees receive the Idealease Guide to Transportation Safety and Compliance, a manual that assists fleet managers with safety and compliance documentation, the Idealease Pre- and Post-Trip Inspection DVD for driver education, and a subscription to the Idealease Safety Bulletin, a weekly safety and compliance e-mail publication.
