National Safety Code & Changes from Transport Canada
The presentation will focus on a brief overview of the National Safety Code (NSC) which is a set of 16 Standards developed by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators. The 16 NSC Standards outline the suggested requirements the provinces and territories are to follow when establishing road transportation legislation. Commercial transportation legislation is taken very seriously by Alberta Transportation and repercussions for non-compliance can be severe. Also, major updates are coming as Transport Canada has recently been directed to transition to electronic log books to monitor driver’s hours.
Doug Fulgham Executive Bio
Spanning a period of more than 40 years, my entire career has been spent in the transportation industry. I started my career as a Heavy Duty Mechanic but soon decided it was time to get out from under the vehicles and transitioned to an owner-operator. I spent several years moving drilling rigs and other cargo locally as well as across Canada and the USA .
Over the course of my years working in the transportation sector, I was always concerned about my safety, the safety of my fellow workers in this industry, and the travelling public that we share the roads with and this led me to enroll at the University of Alberta where I obtained a certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. My love of the transportation industry and my interest in promoting awareness and assistance with safety issues in this sector led me, in 1999, to the creation of my firm, Caycan Transportation Safety Consulting. I have spent the last 17 years working with firms big and small; providing various transportation safety training courses, providing guidance and conducting audits associated with compliance to federal and provincial legislation governing the carrier industry. I was the first person certified by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators to conduct transportation compliance audits.
