Marble Hill, MO, July 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The U.S. DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) strives to improve the safety of cargo tank motor vehicles on our nation’s highways by enforcing related rules and regulations which includes regular inspections by qualified inspectors. Failure to comply results in fines and penalties, but the larger issue is that of public safety.
Cargo Tank (CT) owners must maintain tank-specific records which include all tests, inspections and repairs. These records enable the identification and tracking of changes or problems over time, and are critical to regulatory record keeping. Typically, inspection forms and reports vary from facility to facility, are not digitized or standardized, and the results are inaccessible to facilities who may need to check current disposition of a tank vehicle.
eStandardSolutions.com has developed standardized online forms and reporting tools to promote proper and timely CT tests and inspections. More importantly, the membership-based service generates a growing database of tank specifications and test or inspection results which are accessible to all members. Not only can tank inspectors complete test and inspection forms online from any location using a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone, but consignors can check the database to determine a cargo tank’s current disposition. Since an owner or carrier operating a cargo tank out of compliance is subject to severe penalties, a National database to quickly check tank dispositions is long overdue.
eStandardSolutions.com was designed to meet the needs of inspectors and consignors by providing convenient, accessible forms and reporting tools, as well as email reminders that can be set to notify owners of inspection requirements well in advance. Forms are provided through the membership-based service for all six different tests and inspections used in the re-qualification of tanks.
Proper and timely tests and inspections are imperative to extending the service life of a cargo tank and ensuring public safety. Since an owner or carrier may not use a tank until tests or inspections due are completed, the value of accessible, secure forms and reports is also an economic concern. eStandardSolutions.com offers services to bring tank inspections quickly and conveniently into the digital age of the 21st Century.
eStandard Solutions provides online forms and reporting tools designed specifically for the cargo tank inspection industry. eStandardSolutions.com is an online membership-based service developed by EMG, a division of EMG Productions, Inc. specializing in website design and development.
