Be Prepared for a MOT Safety & Facility Audit
Are You Indeed Prepared?
Is your company ready for an unannounced Safety and Facility Audit? Do you really know what you need in place to pass such an important audit? Are you aware of the risks and costs of failing to meet the prescribed standards of such an audit?
If you answered no to any of these questions then Crossroads Barrie can help you prepare with varying levels of transportation consulting, training or even a Mock Facility Audit.
It appears that small to mid-sized operators, those with 1 to 12 commercial vehicles are the most at risk of failing an audit and dealing with the consequences. Fines, loss of use of a vehicle and higher insurance costs are just some of the pain an operator can endure if the audit finds compliance issues.
Smaller operators typically do not have a dedicated person to assure all the paperwork is in order, the maintenance is performed on schedule, and the drivers are complying with daily vehicle inspections and log book requirements.
Out on the road, MTO enforcement officers, as well as OPP officers, have immediate access to information about your drivers, vehicles and facility. Judgements on infractions are made by officers based on the information they see on their on-board screens. A clean record can go a long way in how an officer reacts to an infraction on the road.
Crossroads Barrie staff are extensively trained and certified. They can offer you the training and guidance your company requires to meet the challenges of operating a fleet of commercial vehicles.
