Burnside City Council recently installed AccuOnboard’s industry-leading TruckWeigh system on ten of its heavy goods vehicles. The council, which employs the most thorough WHS system, wanted to do everything in its power to: reduce/eliminate the risks that overloaded heavy goods vehicles present to drivers and the general public; and to meet its Chain of Responsibility mass management compliance requirements.
To ensure that the overload warning and payload control systems were fully utilised, Matthew Taylor, AccuonBoard’s Technical Sales Manager, delivered a complimentary training session to educate users on the proper use of the TruckWeigh system. The training was well-received; with a number of attendees reporting that it really helped consolidate understandings.
In the near future, the data generated by the TruckWeigh systems will be integrated with GPS telematics systems and will relay important data back to base.
