Brakes are one of the most essential components of your vehicle. The only way you and your operators can place full confidence in your airbrake system is to perform a thorough daily inspection. It is quick, simple and mandatory.
Unfortunately, many drivers are not familiar with proper procedure or have taken to finding short cuts due to being unaware of the importance of this task. An excellent way to avoid potential problems is by providing your staff with a refresher course a minimum of once every two years.
