Essential workers remain on the front lines of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Like other essential workers, drivers in the transportation industry are at risk of being exposed to the virus due to the demands of their job. Unfortunately, no one is invincible to the virus so it’s critical we take all measures available to us to ensure the safety, health and well-being of essential workers.

The Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) task force recently proposed updates to the original Recommended Practice (RP) 443 In-Cab Cleaning and Deodorizing Guidelines. These updates come in the wake of the COVID-19 and provide additional measures to further clean and sanitize a commercial truck cab. These updates were proposed to help reduce the chance of spreading bacterial and viral germs.

The proposed updates focus on promoting using chlorine dioxide (ClO2) as a cleaning agent for use on in-cab surfaces. To learn more about the proposed updates to RP443, please click here.
