New Content * ELDs – Myths and Experiences to Date in BC’s Log Hauling and Wood Fibre Hauling Industries

As of June 12, 2021, commercial vehicles that cross provincial borders will be required to be equipped with an ELD. In response to these changes to the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations, B.C. will need to decide what the requirements will be for CMVs operating within the province.

Starting down the road to ELD (or ELOG) implementation can be fraught with challenges and pitfalls. While there is certainly getting to be more and more information available online and from other sources, often times this information and advice is being provided by ELD providers and is, ultimately, slanted to selling their product.  The Unbiased Guide to ELD Implementation is provided by Greg Munden and provides the experience of implementing ELD’s in a small Canadian trucking company. It is an unbiased set of suggestions and lessons learned (sometimes the hard way) about what you might want to consider when going through the process of ELOG implementation.

Resource Road Maintenance Guideline

The Resource Road Maintenance Guideline has been developed by a group of subject matter experts and stakeholders in response to an initiative from the Log Truck Technical Advisory Committee (LTTAC). The purpose of the initiative is to provide industry with a guideline for implementing a road maintenance program that ensures that resource roads are maintained for safe operations. The need for a specific focus on log hauling has been identified as the configurations, weight and maneuverability of log trucks increases the risk of incident when roads are not maintained adequately to provide safe operations.  All feedback on the guideline can be sent to transport@bcforestsafe.org

The Resource Road Hazard Reporting Tool has been developed to provide road users with an effective mechanism to report hazards that affect safe operations on resource roads based on the parameters identified in the Resource Road Maintenance Guideline.  A fillable pdf version will be coming soon.
