Inspection, Testing, and Repairs
(1) All vehicles shall be kept in good repair and safe operating condition at all times. Vehicles with defective gears, tires, steering equipment, or foot and emergency brakes shall not be used to transport workers.
(2) Inspection or testing of all parts vital to the safe operation of vehicles such as brakes, steering gear, tires, lights, and signaling devices shall be made at the beginning of each shift or each day, and as often as necessary during use. Any condition found then or at any other time which will prevent the safe operation of the vehicle shall be corrected before the vehicle is used.
(3) The requirements of this Safety Code become law after the effective date; therefore the owner or operator of any vehicle used to transport workers must comply with these requirements the same as he is required to comply with any other motor vehicle law. Violations of this Code should be reported to Transportation Safety or authorized representative.
(4) Compartments for workers shall be kept in a clean and sanitary condition and workers shall assist in maintaining such conditions.
