Introduction
  • Background Information
  • In an effort to continually improve our company
    we have updated the vehicle training program for
    2012. In 2010 we had one major vehicle incident.
    Apart from that incident, our vehicle damage has
    continued to decrease in the past few years. With
    your consistent efforts throughout the season we
    can further reduce our vehicle damages in 2012.
  • NEW FOR 2012 !! Budget RentalsThis season we
    will be using Budget F350 Diesel trucks set up
    with 10-ply tires bush bumpers. We believe
    these are the best possible vehicles for the job.
    They are more expensive to rent, but if we can
    take proper care of them, they will pay off for
    us.
  • Other costs (personal financial) associated
    with vehicle damage
  • Personal Injury Loss of Life (unlimited
    personal costs)
  • Lost time for planters, lost production
  • Time spent on investigations / poor image with
    client
  • Project downtime
  • Lost vehicle bonus
  • Frustrated Staff
  • Missed Dead lines
  • Increase in WCB rates
  • Increased Insurance Premiums
  • During the season we will notify (by email) all
    senior management of any accident that happened
    in the company to keep them current on incidents
    as a constant reminder. We will also track all
    incidents and kept clear records so that we can
    look at trends to determine causes and promote
    preventative actions.

UNSAFE DRIVING WARNINGS IMPACTS
Upon the first report of unsafe driving, the
driver will receive a verbal warning from their
Supervisor. (Management Vehicle bonus may be
affected.) If a second warning is warranted, it
will be in writing and signed by the driver
and/or Supervisor. At that point in time the
drivers job is on the line. (Management Vehicle
bonus will be affected.) A third warning from a
Supervisor will result in the immediate
suspension of driving privileges and may result
in the demotion of the driver or termination of
the drivers employment with the company
(Management Vehicle bonus may be completely
withheld.)

B. Vehicle Bonus
2012 Management Vehicle Bonus System
  • We want drivers to get their full bonus. We
    budget paying out the full bonus when we do our
    job costing. We would rather pay money to our
    drivers than incur costs related to safety
    violations injury, avoidable accidents,
    equipment vehicle damage and project downtime.
    Our goal is to pay out 100 of all vehicle
    bonuses in 2012. However, it is up to you to
    help ensure this happens.
  • Tree Deliverers, Checkers, Cooks, Occasional
    Drivers (total value 10 / production day)
  • Crew Bosses (total value 1.0 of crew
    earnings)
  • Supervisors (total value 25 / production day)

Check Point Value (/prod day)
1st Vehicle Inspection, start of the project (Sections A D of the vehicle inspection report) 0 or 2.50 0 or 0.25
2nd Vehicle Inspection Driver Review, mid season (Sections A D of the vehicle inspection report ) 0 or 2.50 0 or 0.25
3rd Vehicle Inspection, Driver Review, Damage Assessment, end of season at Exit meeting (Sections A E of the vehicle inspection report) 0 - 5.00 0 - 0.5
Total 10 / 1 / 25

B. Vehicle Bonus
2012 Management Vehicle Bonus System
  • Each vehicle will be inspected 3 times by your
    Supervisor and/or Garth during the season, and
    will affect the amount of Bonus paid.
  • The first two inspections are all or nothing
    you must meet the requirements outlined in the
    Vehicle Inspection Form Management Review
    Form
  • The Supervisor Garth Hadley will base the Final
    Inspection on an assessment of the condition of
    the vehicles (clean, no body damage, no motor
    transmission damage, no excessive undercarriage
    damage, vehicle paperwork being competed (log
    book complete, REGULAR SERVICE DONE ON
    VEHICLERECEIPTS SUBMITTED TO SUPERVISOR)
    accident protocol must be followed at every
    occurrence (see attached Accident Protocol Flow
    Chart).

B. Vehicle Bonus2012 Management Vehicle Bonus
System
Tire and front windshield wear and damage will
not be considered when calculating the vehicle
bonus.If the driver has a major accident or
does vehicle damage greater than 500.00 (tires
and front windshield not included) the drivers
final potential 5 / .5 bonus will be 0.00 /
0.0A final review of the Vehicle Bonus will be
part of the management payment process with the
Supervisor and Garth Hadley. You will not receive
your vehicle bonus until all bills have been
received from the rental companies. This can take
some timeI.E late July or August.The daily
bonus will be re-started between spring summer
projects or after 50 production days at one
continuous project. THIS INFORMATION IS INCLUDED
IN ALL COMPANY MANAGEMENT CONTRACTS.

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
1. Defensive Driving
  • I. The Law (Legal Element)
  • Rules and regulations that apply to a (i)
    commercial motor vehicle (ii) school bus (iii)
    personal vehicle operation
  • All drivers are governed by, and must comply with
    the Highway Traffic Act (HTA). Drivers are not
    expected to be familiar with all aspects of the
    HTA but drivers are required to be aware of,
    understand, and abide by the portions of the act
    that apply to the driver, the drivers vehicle
    and cargo which the driver carries.
  • This would include
  • The mechanical condition of the drivers vehicle
    (is the vehicle safe to drive)
  • Drivers physical and emotional condition (is the
    driver fully alert and physically able to drive)
  • The security of the load which the driver is
    carrying or pulling(roof rack cargo, truck bed
    cargo and/or trailer cargo)
  • The visibility of the drivers vehicle and
    visibility from the vehicle(lights, mirrors,
    windows)
  • Licenses, validation stickers and insurance
  • II. The Driver (Human Element)
  • As experienced drivers, we are confident in our
    knowledge and abilities. As a result, many of us
    feel we can deal with anything. No matter what
    the problem, mechanical failures, bad weather,
    poor roads or bad drivers, we believe we can deal
    with the situation and survive.
  • Overconfidence such as this is common among
    people who are thoroughly familiar with their
    work. If you think about it though, its a pretty
    arrogant and potentially dangerous attitude to
    take.
  • The basic human factors that affect our ability
    to drive safely are Attitude, Mental and
    Emotional State, Physical State and Knowledge.
  • TRAINER DISCUSSION
  • Attitude
  • Mental/Emotional State Fatigue (Tiredness),
    Stress (Emotional Strain), Complacency, Emotions
  • Physical State Physical Exercise, Nutrition,
    Sleep, The Sleep/Wake Cycle, Minor
    Illnesses/Injuries, Major Illnesses, Hearing,
    Drugs and Alcohol

  • Vehicle inspection
  • Basic vehicle control
  • Factors that affect steering
  • Stopping and handling
  • TRAINER DISCUSSION
  • Pre-trip Inspection, Vehicle Control
    -acceleration, -shifting, -braking, -steering,
    -anti-lock brake systems (ABS)
  • Following Distance -centre of gravity,
    -centrifugal force, -handling
  • Vehicle Physics
  • IV. The Environment
  • Inside the vehicle
  • Road surface conditions
  • Traffic and weather conditions
  • TRAINER DISCUSSION
  • Inside the vehicle
  • Weather conditions-light conditions, -night
    driving, -headlights, -rain, -freezing rain,
    -fog, -snow, -wind
  • Road surface conditions -potholes,
    -hydroplaning, -flooded roads, -wheel ruts,
    -washboard, -shoulders, -road debris, pavement
    markings
  • V. Driving Defensively Accident Prevention
  • use of mirrors

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
2. Paperwork
  • Vehicle paperwork must be completed on a daily
    basis, it is the law. You will be liable for any
    and all the fines, that are the result of failure
    to produce the proper paperwork.
  • VEHICLE BINDER
  • Always ensure the vehicle binder is in your
    vehicle and contains the appropriate information,
    (review actual binder contents)
  • The binder belongs in the vehicle at all times,
    IT SHOULD ONLY BE REMOVED upon return of the
    vehicle to the Rental company.
  • BE SURE TO GET A COPY OF THE RECEIPT FOR ALL WORK
    THAT IS DONE ON YOUR VEHICLE. THIS RECEIPT SHOULD
    GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR SUPERVISOR WITH THE UNIT
    NUMBER CLEARLY VISIBLE.
  • You must complete any damage, accident or vehicle
    transfer reports (review binder contents) as per
    instructions in the binder
  • Always complete your daily circle check (morning
    and night). MANY VEHICLE DAMAGES RESULT IN NOT
    DOING YOUR CIRCLE CHECKLOOSE LUG NUTS, SOFT
    TIRES, HANGING MUFFLERS, LEAKS, ETC.
  • GENERAL
  • Always have your drivers license with you if you
    are operating a vehicle
  • The driver must be able to fully complete all
    aspects of the following paperwork and
    demonstrate the ability to complete a
    comprehensive circle check (Check Pass or Fail
    for each item).

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
3. Rules of the Road for Safe Operation of
Vehicles
  • Client Policies
  • Before the contract begins the Supervisor must
    ask the client if there are any specific driving
    rules or procedures that they should be aware of.
    It is the Supervisors responsibility to
    communicate these rules and regulations to
    his/her staff.
  • Seat Belts
  • You and all of your passengers MUST WEAR a seat
    belt at all times while driving in a company
    vehicleNO EXCEPTIONS!!. It is the law.
  • Maximum Speed
  • The maximum speed of travel in a company vehicle
    on a bush road is 70 km/hr or the posted limit.
    The maximum speed of travel in a company vehicle
    on the highway is the posted limit. Actual
    driving conditions may reduce the acceptable
    maximum speed of travel on bush roads highways.
    SPEEDING IS THE 1 CAUSE OF VEHICLE ACCIDENTS IN
    THE COMPANY
  • Smoking
  • All vehicles should be non smoking! Set the
    policy early and lead by example (i.e.
    Supervisors cant smoke in their trucks either!)
  • Safe Driving is Everyones Responsibility
  • During the Camp Safety Orientation Day the
    Supervisor will make a personal commitment to
    safe driving. The Supervisor will tell the camp
    that each person has the responsibility to report
    unsafe driving to the Supervisor, the Safety
    Officer. If anyone is driving unsafely, the
    Supervisor Garth must be aware of the problem
    and action will be taken.
  • It is very important that at the beginning of the
    season that all persons in camp are versed on the
    dangers of bush road driving. Personal vehicles
    are a significant hazard to safety and the
    drivers must understand the basics of our safety
    standards. Personal vehicles must follow in a
    radio-controlled convoy while traveling on active
    bush roads.
  • Personal Vehicle Drivers.
  • Anyone wishing to use a Personal vehicle during
    the season MUST review and sign the SOPBush
    Driving for Personal Vehicles and submit a
    signed copy to their Supervisor. This SOP is on
    the Pre-Season page and your Supervisor will
    have copies available at start-up.

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
3. Rules of the Road for Safe Operation of
Vehicles
  • Backing-up a Vehicle
  • As a policy for 2012 drivers must sound their
    horn twice quickly before reversing any vehicle.
    A high percentage of our vehicle damage is a
    result of hitting objects when in reverse. You
    will forfeit your entire vehicle bonus and it
    will effect your end of season performance review
    bonus if any damage or injury is caused by
    improperly backing-up a vehicle. This is an
    avoidable incident.
  • Drinking, Driving and Illegal Drugs
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol
    and/or illegal drugs will not be tolerated and is
    grounds for immediate dismissal. The management
    will appoint designated drivers if drivers are
    required on the night off.
  • Keys
  • Keys must be removed from the vehicle when in
    town or during in-camp nights off. Keys should
    never be left attached to the vehicle (in the gas
    flap, under the bumper). The last driver is
    responsible for the care of the keys and
    respective vehicle. Keys must be kept in a safe
    place and all management should designate a
    common location, (i.e. Key box in the office at
    camp)
  • Key Points Review
  • The use of the word accident is inherently
    misleading. Accident by definition means that an
    incident is unavoidable. What we are trying to
    get across is that problems that occur with Coast
    Ranges drivers are in fact avoidable. A better
    word may be a preventable or avoidable
    incident. It is necessary to communicate to
    drivers that they can avoid being put in
    dangerous situations by driving more safely,
    responsibly and carefully.
  • Make sure people know where you are.
  • Do checks on your vehicle daily.
  • Make sure you have the equipment that you need.
    (Spare tire, jack-all, chains, shovel, etc.)
  • Wear your seat belt and ensure all passengers are
    belted.
  • Keep your sights high and wide in order to
    anticipate danger.
  • Drive according to existing conditions. Adapt
    speed accordingly.
  • Slow down for fog, dust, loose gravel, boulders,
    potholes, washboard, sand, wet clay, soft
    shoulders, grader working.
  • Investigate flooded roads before proceeding.
  • Be careful when turning around. The most common
    method of getting stuck is trying to turn around
    in a bad spot. Get out and check the area where
    you plan to turn around.

17
C. Classroom Basics of the Road
3. Rules of the Road for Safe Operation of
Vehicles
  • Key Points and Review (contd)
  • Approaching a grader Slow down. Make sure the
    grader driver knows you are there (use your radio
    to communicate with him, if possible). Wait until
    driver signals you before you pass. Be sure that
    it is safe to enter the oncoming lane before you
    pass the grader. Be careful crossing the line of
    gravel that the grader leaves.
  • Haul Trucks Be sure to keep the noise down in
    your vehicle so you can hear the radio and
    anticipate when haul trucks are coming. It is
    just as important that they know you are coming.
    You must use your radio and call every 2
    kilometers. Look for a safe pull-out and wait
    for the truck to pass. Continue on only when the
    dust has settled and you are sure that it is
    clear. Radio your position again before you pull
    onto the road.
  • Animals When you see an animal, brake, slow down
    and/or stop if you can without risk to vehicles
    behind you. If there is no traffic and no danger
    of colliding with any other object, steer around
    the animal, staying in control of your vehicle.
  • Distractions The Driver must be free of
    distractions. Co-pilot will operate 2-way radio
    calling kms and truck stereo. Music must not be
    loud enough to distract the driver. Passengers
    will not distract the driver verbally or
    physically at anytime during travel.
  • Always stay right on hills. There is a legal
    center-line on bush roads.
  • Drive within your capabilities and that of your
    vehicle.
  • See and be seen. Use headlights at all times.
  • Reduce speed to increase warning time.
  • Radio Usage Co-pilot will operate truck radio
    for traffic communication handheld radio for
    company communication.
  • Be clear on your clients expectations on radio
    use. As a company rule, call out your position
    every 2 kilometers. Use the radio to call out a
    description of who you are, where you are and
    what you are doing. (I.e. Pick-up, Up Bear at
    6.) Be sure to listen for other on the road and
    pull-over for larger vehicles. Anyone found not
    using their radio properly will be subject to
    discipline and loss of management or driver
    bonus.
  • Radio Checks
  • Each time a convoy of vehicles leaves camp or
    the block, a radio check must be completed to
    ensure that all vehicles are on the proper
    channel and that clear communication is
    established. Co-pilot will operate truck radio
    and company handheld.
  • Passing Equipment at Roadside
  • When approaching any heavy equipment that is
    working at roadside, come to a complete stop at
    least 35 meters back from the machine. Make sure
    you get the attention of the operator (use your
    radio to communicate if possible) and the machine
    comes to a complete stop. Always make sure that
    you establish eye contact with the operator and
    that he/she signals it is safe to pass.

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
3. Rules of the Road for Safe Operation of
Vehicles
SPACE is something that a driver must always be
aware of whether he/she is backing up, following
a haul truck, pulling over to the side, or
passing another vehicle etc. When a driver knows
his/her space, he/she understands the limits of
where the vehicle can move. Be very careful to
provide sufficient space when traveling in
convoys! Sleepy Drivers are a common cause of
our vehicle accidents. Analyze the situation and
decide if the task can wait until the morning. If
something really must get done at night, work in
pairs. If it is impractical or impossible to work
in pairs then know your limits. If you cant
keep your eyes open you cant drive. Pull off and
take a power nap. Work efficiently during the
day. Avoid the all-nighters. You can accomplish
more when you are rested and thinking
clearly. Empty vs. Full Vehicles A fully-loaded
SUV or truck will handle differently than an
empty one. The rear end of an empty vehicle will
tend to slide out more than a full one when
cornering. An empty vehicle also tends to spin
its rear tires if starting on an uphill. Back
vehicles into their parking spots at night
parking pointing in the direction of escape on
the block Not only does it look professional it
will be much easier to drive out in the morning
without having to back-up with foggy windows and
planters stumbling around. Park vehicles pointing
in the direction of escape to prepare for the
possibility of an emergency exit. Night Driving
Avoid night driving whenever possible. Operating
a vehicle at night greatly increases your change
of personal injury and damage to the vehicle
The Cowboy Days Are Gone You have a serious
responsibility to ensure the safety of your
passengers. No one thinks that you are the
coolest because you drive the fastest. You wont
feel like much of hero if you find yourself
upside down in the ditch with the blood of 7
planters on your hands. Driving too fast and out
of control truly upsets people and is an
extremely serious offense that will lead to
termination of employment. Whether its your
first day on gravel roads or you are a wily
veteran, take it easy. It will take a while for
you to feel comfortable driving on gravel roads.
(Even if you have experience, remember that it
has been many months since youve been driving on
logging roads). If you start to feel too
comfortable driving on logging roads, take a
moment and make sure that you are driving safely.
NEVER FORGET THE SERIOUS RESPONSIBILITY THAT
DRIVING BRINGS WITH IT!!

C. Classroom Basics of the Road
4. Vehicle Regular Service Repair work
  • Have a licensed shop (Ford Dealer for Budget
    Units) service your vehicle every 5,000 km (Oil,
    Lube, Filter Air Filter). Your Supervisor will
    instruct you on where to take your vehicle to be
    serviced. You are responsible for your vehicle,
    so you must remind your Supervisor that your
    vehicle needs service and plan to do it on the
    day off. MANY OF OUR UNECESSARY VEHCILE CHARGES
    ARE RELATED TO NOT DOING REGULAR SERVICE AND NOT
    HAVING ANY RECEIPTS FOR SERVICE.
  • BE SURE THAT YOUR SUPERVISOR GETS A RECEIPT FOR
    ANY WORK THAT IS DONE ON YOUR VEHICLETHIS IS
    CRUCIAL AND WILL AFFECT YOUR BONUS.
  • Wash your vehicle on every day offTHE
    UNDERCARRIAGE AND BRAKES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT.
  • All rental vehicles are covered by warranty if
    they have less than 60,000 km.. CHECK TO SEE IF
    IT IS WARRANTY WORK FIRST.
  • Road side assistance should be covered by the
    manufacturer if you break down on the highway,
    however it does not apply on bush roads.

5. Towing Out (Getting Equipment unstuck)
  • Keep your cool, dont get frantic
  • Avoid night driving (2x easier to get stuck, 4x
    harder to get unstuck)
  • how to pull out a vehicle with another
    vehicle(s), demonstrate
  • how to hook-up chains ropes, what part of the
    truck, demonstrate
  • how to jack-up a truck, demonstrate (jack-all
    hydraulic jack)
  • dont leave any slack in the rope or chain / keep
    people away in case the rope breaks
  • avoid getting under the vehicle
  • dont keep spinning the wheels, call for help
  • get out and walk an area first if you think you
    may get stuck
  • put truck in 4WD before you get stuck
  • ensure the vehicle has no damage and is cleaned
    off once unstuck

6. Securing Loads
  • how and when to use a tie-down straps,
    demonstrate
  • how and when to use chains, demonstrate
  • how when to use rope, demonstrate
  • where to tie-off
  • how to secure propane and gas
  • checking loads (ALWAYS)
  • unloading heavy items /types of ramps

7. Fuel Handling (TDG)
  • Must complete the TDG WHMIS requirements and
    test at www.coastrange.ca
  • TDG Placards (when required) reference load
    sheet (see attached)
  • Always transport Propane cylinders standing up
  • Do not fill Gerry cans in the bed of a pick-up
    truck. Fill them on the ground and then load into
    truck to avoid static electricity charge.
  • how to secure propane and gas (always tie down)
  • Always transport fuel in the open bed of a truck
    (never inside an enclosed area)
  • Gasoline can no longer be transported in 45 Gal
    Drums, only Diesel in 45 Gal Drums.
  • Water Dirt in the fuel is the Number 1 cause of
    vehicle malfunctionkeep Gerry cans water tight!
  • Improper Fuel Type (Gas vs. Diesel) is the Number
    2 cause of vehicle malfunction. Be sure of which
    fuel you are using.

8. Driving on the worksite
  • Driving a vehicle is a major part of executing
    your job as a member of Coast Ranges management
    team. Driving on the block can be a hazardous
    part of your day and requires that you pay
    special attention. There are a number of
    elements that you must look out for on the block.
  • You must not pass planters on the block in excess
    of 20km/hr. This is the law!
  • Drive at a much slower speed than normal. Roads
    on blocks are not maintained and usually much
    narrower.
  • Keeping close watch of any workers that may be on
    the road or at a tree cache.
  • It is very easy to get stuck in soft landings.
  • There is usually no shoulder on these roads.
  • Keeping as eye out for animals as the block is
    often their home or former home.
  • Block roads can change from good to bad very
    quickly. Wash outs can be very deep and often
    not marked.
  • Heavy sticks can be kicked up and hit a bystander
    or the side of your vehicle. DO NOT RUN OVER LOGS
    OR ROCKS ON THE ROADTAKE THE TIME TO MOVE THEM!
  • Do not take vehicles down roads if you know there
    is no turn around spot.
  • Be careful when approaching tree caches as there
    could be someone under the tarp or near it.
  • Park your vehicle so that it is pointing in the

E. How to fill out the Drivers Log
  • Coast Range vehicles are all commercially
    licensed vehicles. This means that we have
    registered each of our vehicles as a company
    fleet with the Ministry of Transportation and are
    subject to the Ministrys standards as to how a
    commercial vehicle is operated. Proper paper work
    is the first step to achieving this standard.
    Log Book documentation is a proven statement of
    the drivers willingness and attempt to operate
    that vehicle with all safety standards in mind.
    These log books are published for the trucking
    industry. The terminology therefore relates to
    this business. Dont get too confused in this.
    Weve put together a breakdown of the main
    sections you need to fill out. There is a sample
    of how to properly fill out a log book in both
    the Vehicle Binder and the Driver Training
    Workbook.
  • It is absolutely necessary to fill out all
    information requested in the log book.
  • 1. Top Half of Page Drivers Daily Log
  • A. Date
  • This is the calendar date that you are
    driving the vehicle.
  • B. Shift Start Time
  • This is the time you start your circle check
    on your vehicle.
  • C. Starting Odometer
  • This is the kilometre reading at the start
    of the day.
  • D. Ending Odometer
  • This is the last kilometre reading at the
    end of the day/evening.
  • E. KMs driven that day
  • This is the total number of kilometres driven
    on that vehicle for the day.
  • F. Drivers name
  • The main operator of that vehicle for the
    day.
  • IMPORTANT POINT - FILLING OUT THE LOG BOOK ON A
    DAILY BASIS IS THE FIRST STEP TO SAFE DRIVING AND
    IT IS THE LAW TO DO SO.

27
E. How to fill out the Drivers Log
  • 1. Top Half of Page Drivers Daily Log (contd)
  • G. Truck/Tractor License plate
  • This is the Provincial License plate on the
    vehicle.
  • H. Unit Number
  • This is a number/code that Coast Range
    assigns to each vehicle in order to keep track
    of it.
  • I. Trailer License plate
  • This is the Provincial license plate number of
    the trailer being towed.
  • J. Unit Number of trailer
  • This is the number/code that Coast Range
    gives to the trailer in order to track it.
  • K. Drivers Signature
  • This must be the authentic signature of the
    driver of the vehicle.
  • L. Carriers
  • Coast Range Contracting is the carrier.
  • M. Main/Principle office
  • RR1 S13 C11935 Platt Rd, Tappen, BC V0E 2X06
  • N. Home Terminal Address
  • This is the address where the vehicle will
    be based out of on a daily basis (I.e. your bush
    camp e.g. KM 24.5 Mowing Machine Haul Road)
  • O. Duty Status Bar
  • This section tracks the hours that you drive
    everyday. It is broken down into the 24 hours
    that make up a workday. It must be filled out
    in detail if you drive outside of a 160KM radius
    from your Home Terminal Address (I.e. convoy days
    to a new contract), and in all cases the start
    and end time of your driving day must be noted on
    the duty status bar. These are the following
    sections that must be filled out

28
E. How to fill out the Drivers Log
  • 1. Top Half of Page Drivers Daily Log (contd)
  • iv. On duty time other than driving
  • This is the time that you are working but not
    driving (ie. in the field)
  • v. Daily Recap Section
  • This is a summary of the use of the vehicle.
    This must be filled in and updated daily.
  • vi. Remarks Section
  • This is the area of the page where you note
    what you have done during the day. Where you
    started and stopped, circle check, lunch
    etcThis must all be noted in remarks section.
  • 2. Bottom half of Page Drivers Vehicle
    Inspection Report
  • All Areas must be filled in. This is a proper
    circle check. When completed in its entirety, it
    is a signed document that verifies the safety of
    that vehicle.
  • In this case the driver of the vehicle is also
    the inspector. You are not obligated to do
    mechanical work on that vehicle only to determine
    whether vehicle is safe to operate.
  • For example, if the vehicle has no brakes (I.e.
    leaking brake fluid, severed brake line), you
    will note this and not drive vehicle (only tick
    off what is malfunctioning).
  • Anything of that nature which makes the vehicle
    unsafe to operate must be noted and vehicle will
    have to be towed to the nearest service centre.
  • By ticking the condition of the vehicle is
    satisfactory you are verifying vehicle can be
    driven.

F. SPEED KILLS!!
  • A Review of ICBC Information
  • The following slides were presented at the 2007
    Management Training and serve as valuable
    reminders to the dangers of driving too fast!

31
IN A HURRY?
To speed or not to speed that is the question.
IS IT WORTH THE RISK TO SPEED?
50 KM ROAD TRIP (100 km/hr speed limit) OBEY SPEED LIMIT DRIVER 15 km/h OVER
Total Driving Time 30 minutes 26 Minutes
Increased crash risk? NO YES
Amount of fine 0.00 115.00
Driver Penalty Points 0 3
Risk of increased insurance premium due to a crash? NO YES
Additional stress? NO Watching for police Fear of radar traps Increased risk of killing yourself or others
How much time do you save by
speeding? Only 4 minutes!
32
REACTION TIME AND STOPPING DISTANCE CHART
Please note that this chart is based on pavement
driving and normal conditions. We operate
primarily on gravel roads where stopping
distances are greatly increased. The maximum
speed for Coast Range vehicles on gravel roads in
perfect conditions is 80/km. Most of the time
we experience less than perfect
conditionsTherefore Coast Range Drivers must
drive at a speed that is safe for the road
conditions, which in most cases will be less than
80 km/hr.

CRASH SEVERITY (1)
Crash at 90 km
Crash at 120 km
A vehicle crashing at 120 km/h creates a force of
impact 84 higher than one crashing at 90
km/hour.
An increase of only 30 km/h nearly doubles crash
severity!
34
RISKS OF SPEEDING
THE FASTER WE DRIVE
  • ? The less time and distance we have to react
  • ? The more our field of vision is effectively
  • reduced (need more information to keep up
  • with the rate of travel)
  • ? Vehicle responsiveness and stability are
  • reduced brakes, tires, steering and
  • suspension become less effective
  • ? In the event of a crash, the violence of the
  • impact is dramatically increased

G. Conclusions
  • Once you complete the online test that
    accompanies this training, you have completed the
    first part of Coast Ranges annual driver
    training.
  • The second part of the annual driver training
    will be a practical session with a Professional
    Driver Trainer at the Management Training at
    Skimikin or in Kamloops (for Crew Drivers).
  • Please remember that you will need to submit the
    following to Garth (ghadley_at_coastrange.ca) before
    you start work
  • Copy of your valid drivers licence
  • A current driver abstract (your driving record
    from your province)
  • Confirm attendance at Management Training or Crew
    Driver Training.
  • The Last Word
  • I hope that you take your responsibility for safe
    driving extremely seriously.
  • Many people are counting on you to drive
    safely. I believe that driving is the biggest
    responsibility that I can place upon you, and I
    want to do my best to prepare you for it. Be
    calm, be prepared, and think ahead. Most of the
    damages and accidents come from rushing, taking
    short cuts, frustration and poor planning. Put
    safety first by being prepared and organized.
  • Think first. Then Drive.
  • I wish you all a very safe and profitable season,
    and may you all EARN all of your vehicle bonus.
