Truck breakdown call out sheet to help operators

The ATA has released a sample truck breakdown call out sheet to help operators ask the right questions when a driver calls the depot to report a breakdown.

Developed from the Truck breakdowns – practical advice to get you moving session at the 2013 PACCAR & Dealer TMC, the sample sheet prompts operators to take down all the details you need to respond to a breakdown quickly and appropriately, including questions regarding the load, vehicle position, vehicle combination and driver needs.

The sheet is designed to be used in conjunction with the Victorian Transport Industry Safety Group’s Truck emergency breakdown and road safety guidelines, which includes photos of recommended vehicle positions, how to place advance warning triangles and advice on how to improve your truck’s visibility during a night breakdown.
