ARTSA conference to address truck fires, causes and prevention

Tickets are selling fast for the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA) Heavy Vehicle Fires Conference.

The conference, set for 15 August at Royal Randwick in Sydney, will bring together experts, policy makers, manufacturers, fleet managers, transport operators and component suppliers to share their experience on what is one of the largest claims categories for insurers in Australia.

The event, according to ARTSA, is expected to attract 150 participants.

Truck and bus fires are much too prevalent and the causes are generally well known but their understanding and prevention has been sadly lacking,” said engineering consultant and ARTSA member, Dr Peter Hart. “It is time that more was done to promote the causes and opportunities for prevention."

During the conference an updated version of the ARTSA publication written ‘Why Heavy Vehicles Catch Fire’ written by Hart will be released.

The program will cover truck, trailer and bus fires – the scale of the problem; common causes of heavy vehicle fires; opportunities to reduce fire risk; practical inspection regimes; wheel fire risks and treatment; recommended ADR and Standards changes; and the challenges of the electric age.

Earlier this year, ARTSA repositioned itself to address fast-paced heavy vehicle evolution.
