Safety & Maintenance Policy

Safety & Maintenance Policy

Once the carrier receives a permanent SFC, they will require a written Safety & Maintenance program (this is different from an OHS policy which addresses employee and premises safety). These policies are in regard to the operation of a commercial vehicle. These specific policies are required to be in place and implemented.

A properly written safety program sets out the basis for demonstrating safety and compliance as required to legally operate under a Safety Fitness Certificate in Alberta. The maintenance program is designed to assist you in maintaining mandatory inspections and repairs on your vehicles and what is to be retained on file.

Our staff can provide you with approved programs that meet the requirements of Alberta Transportation regulations. We can tailor these programs to meet your specific needs or review your existing programs. We can also provide you with updates to ensure your programs are sufficient during an audit review. These programs will include information required for you to build and maintain proper driver and vehicle files.
