Truck Fires - Causes and Prevention

Tickets are selling fast to the Heavy Vehicle Fires conference on 15 August at Royal Randwick in Sydney.

The conference 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 is expected to attract over 150 participants.

Dr Peter Hart said that truck and bus fires are much too prevalent and the causes are generally well known but their understanding and prevention has been sadly lacking. 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 by Peter called Why Heavy Vehicles Catch Fire will be released.

Registration is now open and ARTSA members can enjoy a significant discount by using the promotional code ARTSA2019 on the ticketing page.
