Be prepared for the future of transport: FTA seminar series visits Ireland
Tuesday 28 February 2012
The Freight Transport Association's ever popular Transport Manager seminar series, aimed at preparing transport managers for the year ahead, will be visiting Ireland on Wednesday 21 March. The seminar, supported by leading tyre manufacturer Goodyear and specialist insurance broker Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) Ireland, will arm transport managers with the tools they need to meet the challenges of an increasingly pressured environment in which their role is always changing.
Keeping transport operators at the forefront of the very latest legislation, best practice and compliance has always been FTA's aim and the seminar will give delegates the opportunity to hear at first hand about key legislation to ensure their operation is fully prepared for the future.
With the impact of the new Road Transport Bill, the future of Driver CPC training, the latest news on cabotage and the eurovignette, it is vital to plan and prepare for the coming year.
The keynote address will be given by Maurice Mullen, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Transport, and there are key sessions on the new Road Transport Bill; ADR update; work-related vehicle safety; employee law; and speakers include the Department of Transport, the Health & Safety Authority, and the Road Safety Authority.
Attendance is open to FTA or FTA Ireland members at 250 euros plus VAT for the first delegate and 210 euros plus VAT for subsequent delegates; and to all other delegates at 300 euros plus VAT for the first delegate and 260 euros plus VAT for subsequent delegates.
