A few places are still available for the Freight Transport Association’s Fuel Tanker Conference which takes place on Tuesday 2 December at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. Anyone interested in attending is being encouraged to book now to ensure their place at the event, which takes place every two years.
The conference will update fleet managers and vehicle engineers in this highly specialised sector of transport operation on future legislation and enforcement priorities, and give best practice advice to ensure the safety, efficiency and compliance of their operation.
Sponsored by MAN Truck & Bus and PTV Group, the line-up includes representatives from the Department for Transport, Transport Research Laboratory and Health and Safety Laboratory who will be speaking on construction issues and research into tanker integrity. The Vehicle Certification Agency will cover the subject of tanker approval, and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency will speak on fuel tanker ADR testing and enforcement. There will be a presentation by the Health & Safety Executive on safety issues, and other speakers include the Energy Institute and tanker operator Hoyer Petrolog Ltd. FTA and the United Kingdom Petroleum Industry Association will give a presentation on the relaunch of the Safe Loading Pass Scheme.
