TORONTO, Ont. -- The Ontario Fleet Safety Council’s Toronto branch has thrown its support behind a call for improved entry-level driver training standards. 

The Fleet Safety Council is comprised of driver trainers, safety directors and other professionals and is affiliated with the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA). 

In a letter, the Fleet Safety Council said: “The lack of a training standards has been a long-standing frustration of many of our members. Moreover, those of us in the industry are often questioned as to why that is the case. Obviously, there is no good answer.” 

The Council joined the Ontario Trucking Association, Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario and numerous trucking industry insurers in calling for a heightened training standard. The Toronto Council also said it’d be calling upon its 10 sister chapters across Ontario to take similar action.
