The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced an important upcoming event today, “Reducing CMV Crashes Through the Use of Video Recorders Webinar.” The live broadcast has been scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, at 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PDT. Registrants will be able to ask questions at the conclusion of the event.
In this 1.5-hour webinar, investigators and recorder analysts from the NTSB’s Office of Highway Safety and Office of Research & Engineering, along with commercial fleet owners representing the truck and bus industries, will discuss why and how their organizations use video recorders to improve safety.
They will discuss lessons learned from accident investigations, and provide case studies. These will highlight how companies use the data from cameras to review driver and vehicle performance, and then make modifications to safety plans.
The NTSB believes recorders can improve safety, which is why “Expand Recorder Use to Enhance Safety” is on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List of critical transportation safety improvements.
Board Member Dr. T. Bella Dinh-Zarr, PhD, MPH, will provide opening remarks. In addition to presentations from highway investigators, confirmed presenters also include: Randy Tomlinson, Sr. Manager, Safety, Health & Security, Ryder Integrated Logistics; and Al Smith, Corporate Safety Director, Greyhound Bus Lines.
Registrants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the board member, investigators, and corporate safety directors in this live broadcast.
