Brake Safety Week (Sept. 6-12)

PeopleNet upholds safety as a priority — the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) does too. On September 6th, the CVSA kicks off Brake Safety Week.

Brake Safety Week is a project set in place for Operation Airbrake, CVSA’s international campaign for brake safety. During the week, the CVSA enforces brake regulations by sending out CMV inspectors all over North America to perform inspections. Learn more about the specifics of their inspection procedure here.

Operation Airbrake

According to the CVSA, more than 3.4 million brakes have been inspected since Operation Airbrake began in 1998. Participating transport businesses along with other players in the industry assist with outreach and educational programs throughout the week.

Preparation is always an advantage — take a look at the materials CVSA offers to develop a better understanding of what they’re looking for.  Remember: safety is important. Just ask this guy.
