NTTC Offers free tank truck rollover prevention video with Spanish subtitles
Sep 30, 2011 12:20 PM
One of the best training videos addressing the tank truck rollover issue is now available with Spanish subtitles. Even better, itís free.
"National Tank Truck Carriers is pleased to offer free access to the Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention video that we developed with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) with Spanish subtitles added," says Greg Hodgen, NTTC chairman and president and chief executive officer of Groendyke Transport Inc. "While it is a requirement that a tank truck driver be able to speak English, we believe there is a real safety benefit to providing training in the person's native language. Rollovers happen around the world, and we hope that this video also will be used in Spanish speaking countries."
The video focuses on the causes of tank truck rollovers and what actions drivers can take to prevent rollovers, according to NTTC. It features tank truck equipment and comments from professional tank truck drivers. Thousands of copies of the original video have been distributed throughout North America and the video can be downloaded from Department of Transportation websites or from the NTTC website.
"Safety is the key component of NTTC's mission and we are happy to make this video available at no cost to anyone it might benefit," Hodgen says. NTTC is the trade association of the tank truck industry.
