Time is limited. No one can add a minute to an hour, day, or week. For professional drivers, time is further limited by the hours-of-service regulations. The purpose of the hours-of-service regulations is to keep tired drivers off the road. After many hours behind the wheel, fatigue sets in, and it can lead to bad decisions and deadly crashes. For the safety of all drivers, compliance with the hours-of-service regulations is required of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.
The Canada Hours of Service Training curriculum will help drivers and carriers to be compliant while maximizing the available hours through a full understanding of how the limits affect safety and productivity.
Something can be both easier and more confusing at the same time. That is certainly the case when discussing Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs). While the technical standards are some of the most complicated of all the regulations, for drivers, creating a duty status is easier and more accurate when using an ELD because much of the recording is done automatically.
Canada Hours of Service Training Module 6: ELD Basics is designed to help drivers compliantly use ELDs, and correctly use the special driving categories of personal use and yard move. This will help drivers understand their role in reducing unassigned driving events, when to edit the record, and the importance of reviewing the record before submission.

- Discuss when drivers are required to use an ELD
