Delegates at the forthcoming FTA Fleet Engineer conference will have the opportunity to hear from Kevin Rooney, Traffic Commissioner for the north-east of England outlining the priorities for he and his colleagues.
FTA’s highly popular Fleet Engineer conference returns in June with a packed programme aimed at individuals with responsibility for specifying commercial vehicles, ensuring roadworthiness compliance and maintaining vehicles, providing delegates with the very latest information on which to base vehicle specification and maintenance decisions.
Mr Rooney will be talking on the importance of maintenance provision and meeting compliance standards for operator licence holders in the face of competing priorities; from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for an update on load securing and enforcement; , and from vehicle manufacturers, operators and leading transport industry bodies on technical issues currently affecting fleet engineers, as well as future legislative changes, to ensure vehicle fleets and maintenance procedures operate to their highest potential in a safe, efficient and sustainable way.
FTA Fleet Engineer is sponsored by Brigade Electronics, DAF Trucks, Goodyear and Isuzu Trucks, and takes place on Wednesday 11 June at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
The Fleet Engineer conference sessions are to cover a wide variety of topical engineering issues including:
2014 priorities for the Office of the Traffic Commissioner – Kevin Rooney
EC Whole Vehicle Type Approval – bodybuilder perspective
