ATA welcomes new members to the Industry Technical Council

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has welcomed four new members to its Industry Technical Council (ITC).

The ITC is a working committee that was established to enhance the trucking industry’s safety, professionalism and viability by providing technical input and best practice advice to the ATA.

“The ITC brings operators, suppliers, engineers and industry specialists together in a long-term discussion forum,” said ATA CEO, Ben Maguire.

“The council benefits both the industry and stakeholders as it raises technology and maintenance standards, improving the operational safety of the heavy vehicle industry,” he said.

The new ITC members are: Boral Compliance Officer, Samantha Jackson; Fuel Distributors Western Australia Fleet/Workshop Manager, Graham Lock; CHS Broadbent Maintenance Manager, Jason Button; and Viva Energy Lubricants Technical Team Leader, Paul Smallacombe.

“I’m proud to welcome our new ITC members, who will each be able to provide a diverse set of skills and expertise to the council,” said Maguire.

“Each new member also represents outstanding companies, including long-time ATA sponsor Boral and Viva Energy who have just launched their new aviation business to more than 50 airports around Australia,” he said.

As well as providing input and advice to the ATA, the ITC is responsible for developing and recommending Technical Advisory Procedures and safety alerts, providing industry representatives to serve on government and Standards Australia technical committees, and developing the ATA Technology and Maintenance Conference program.

“The ITC is always open to new members and I would encourage anyone with an interest to consider joining,” said Maguire.

“This is an opportunity to gain technical information from like-minded individuals and become part of our industry voice into the future,” he said.
