Vehicle Maintenance

For many employers and employees, having a safe, reliable vehicle is an essential part of conducting business. Work vehicles must be well-maintained in order to meet legal requirements (e.g. as described in the Motor Vehicle Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation). Vehicle manufacturers specify maintenance activities and schedules that must be completed to avoid voiding the warranty. Most importantly, drivers need a vehicle that is equipped and maintained to meet on-the-job expectations, and does not fail in a way that causes or contributes to a motor vehicle incident. Check out pages in this section for helpful information and tools to help you plan and implement an effective vehicle maintenance plan for cars and light-duty trucks and vans.
