With Canada’s new hours-of-service rules in effect on January 1, 2007, the Canadian Trucking Alliance has prepared a reference book to help drivers, trainers and managers understand the new regime. The book incorporates the interpretation guidelines that will be used by enforcement officers, and also includes explanations of the U.S. rules and tips for fatigue management together with the detailed regulations for both Canada and the U.S.
The handbook will be available from the Ontario Trucking Association for $15 (plus taxes) for members and $17 (plus taxes) for non-members starting November 16. Purchase online at www.ontruck.org/store or call (416) 249 7401 ext. 223 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Other provincial
associations will also have the book available.
Teaching materials based on the handbook will soon be available to those responsible for explaining the rules to drivers and other fleet personnel.
