The MTO will also discuss, when used properly, how it can also be used by the fleet itself to monitor and rectify problems with in its fleet, prior to the MTO becoming involved. PMTC President Mike Millian says” When a Fleet properly uses its CVOR to regularly monitor its fleet, it is able spot trends and use this as a proactive way to intervene, train staff and correct issues before they become a major problem”. As part of the CVOR presentation, the staff will also discuss the Audit program that can occur as a result of on road behaviour(s).
