“With our newest courses on Intermodal Equipment Inspections, Rear End Collision Avoidance-Medium Duty Truck and Transporting Lithium Batteries, we are providing valuable training on topics that will improve safety and compliance for fleets and their drivers,” said Laura McMillan, vice president of training development for ITI. “The steady stream of new courses we’re adding to the PRO-TREAD library, especially for the medium-duty market, is a reflection of ITI’s ongoing commitment to meeting the industry’s training needs.”
The new PRO-TREAD courses, which blend timely and valuable information with real-world scenarios, include:
- Intermodal Equipment Inspections covers crucial areas during the inspection process for intermodal containers and chassis to ensure safety during transit. The training shows the viewer the details needed from a close-up perspective to perform a thorough and effective inspection.
- Rear End Collision Avoidance-Medium Duty Truck focuses on techniques for avoiding rear end collisions since most truck/automobile accidents involve the car getting hit from behind. The training uses the concept of the Space Cushion for establishing a safe following distance based on five key factors and delivers the key messages using graphical representations that make it easy to comprehend the importance of safe distance.
- Transporting Lithium Batteries provides information for shippers about safety precautions, packaging and labeling requirements, and documents required for compliance with applicable US and international regulations.
All three courses are available now from the PRO-TREAD library. The lessons can be taken from any connected device, including iOS and Android. As part of the PRO-TREAD family, they can be assigned and tracked automatically for easy recordkeeping and compliance.
