"Practical Tire & Wheel Service – Commercial Vehicle Wheel Service Training" is designed to be used for training individuals who service truck and bus tires and wheels. Servicing tires and wheels is a critical part of keeping vehicles in safe operating condition. When the work is done improperly, people can be injured - even fatally. Many people take this work for granted and fail to appreciate the risks involved.
Service technicians need to be properly trained, be aware of the risks and need to follow all of the recommendations provided by the manufacturers of tire, wheel and rim components. They must also comply with all relevant safety regulations.
Practical Tire & Wheel Service is the official reference of the mandatory training program required in the province of Ontario and outlines safe work procedures for preventing personal injury and to ensure vehicle safety. This manual is also useful for self-study and as an on-going safety and technical reference. Also available in French language edition.
