Practical Safety Inspection for Commercial Vehicles

Sale price $24.00 Regular price $25.00

Doing annual or semi-annual safety inspections of commercial vehicles? “Practical Safety Inspection for Commercial Vehicles” is a complete technician’s guide to the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) National Safety Code Standard 11, Part B.

Technicians doing inspections need an authoritative, simple to use guidebook to ensure their inspections are done consistently and in accordance with the regulations – this is it! This handbook includes the entire text of NSC 11 Part B along with a detailed explanation of how to properly apply it during a vehicle inspection. The book includes detailed description and illustrations of how each component or system is to be inspected and what constitutes a ‘pass’ or ‘reject’ condition.

The Practical Safety Inspection handbook also provides general instructions on PMVI inspection requirements. Explanations are given for each item that must be inspected, along with reference and measurement charts. The book provides a unique defect coding option that allows technicians to identify defects more easily than describing each defect in a note or sentence form. This coding method does not appear in the CCMTA version of NSC 11 Part B.

6 1/2 in. x 8 3/8 in., full color - 186 pages.
