TIA teams up with Michelin on training
In recognition of the Rubber Manufacturers Association’s (RMA) National Tire Safety Week (NTSW) June 3-9, 2012, Michelin North America Inc. and the Tire Industry Association (TIA) have partnered on a tire training video.
Produced for the tire and transportation industries, “CSA Tire Inspection” covers the guidelines for inspecting truck tires under the new Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
“We are proud to partner with Michelin and support FMCSA’s efforts to improve safety on our nation’s highways,” said Dr. Roy Littlefield, TIA executive vice president. “This video will help the industry educate drivers and technicians on the federal inspection regulations for truck and bus tires.”
“Michelin is strongly committed to the safety of the transportation industry,” said Doug Jones, customer engineering support manager for Michelin. “This commitment is why we have partnered with TIA over the years to produce this series of safety related videos. We strongly encourage fleets, owner-operators and other industry personnel to utilize this and the other training videos to help promote safety in our industry.”
The CSA Tire Inspection video is available for free download or viewing at michelintruck.com under the Tool Box tab or at youtube.com/michelintruck. Previous Michelin/TIA videos (In Shop Safety, Wheel End Safety, Tubeless Radial Truck Tire Safety, and Commercial Road Service) are also available for no charge at the Michelin truck website.
