CANADIAN HEAVY TRUCK WEIGHT AND DIMENSION PROGRAM ONLINE COURSE OVERVIEW

Fleet Safety International’s North American Cargo Securement Program covers the NSC Standard 10 Cargo Securement, which regulates weights and dimensions of commercial vehicles that traverse provinces and territories.

In February, 1988, the Council of Ministers, responsible for transportation and highway safety, endorsed a memorandum of understanding designed to improve uniformity in regulations covering weights and dimensions of commercial vehicles that traverse provinces and territories. There have been eight amendments since 1988, with the last one being implemented in 2014.

This program will present essential, up-to-date information about the weights and dimension regulations set forth in NSC Standard 10 Cargo Securement, and will also cover the ways in which the regulations differ by province.
