Valvoline and Cummins Filtration form alliance to market Air Shield Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

A

shland Consumer Markets (Valvoline) and Cummins Filtration have announced a new alliance to package, market and distribute Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) in North America. Diesel Exhaust Fluid is required for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems used to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) diesel engine emissions regulations introduced in 2010. Fleetguard-Valvoline Air Shield DEF will be offered through the Cummins and Valvoline distribution channels in the United States and Canada beginning in April 2010. Air Shield DEF is conveniently packaged in 1-gallon and 2.5-gallon bottles, drums and totes. The 2.5 gallon packaging features a vented bottle that can be entirely

dispensed in less than 30 seconds, making it fast and easy to use. Exclusive and dedicated Valvoline packaging lines ensure the quality and consistency meet ISO 22241 specifications. Compatible with all SCR systems, Air Shield DEF is API and AdBlue* - certified and enables on-highway diesel engines to meet the EPA’s near zero oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emission levels required for 2010 and later on-highway diesel engines. The SCR systems work by mixing DEF with engine exhaust, which then flows through a SCR catalyst and reacts to form harmless nitrogen and water vapor. The new alliance is an extension of the Valvoline and

Western Star Offers Cummins ISX15 for North American Customers Cummins ISX15 now features EPA 2010 SCR technology

estern Star Trucks has announced the availability of the Cummins ISX15 EPA 2010 engine for the North American market. Combined with Detroit Diesel’s powertrain options, the Cummins ISX15 completes a full line of engine solutions that meet the demand for Western Star customers. The Cummins ISX15 features 400 to 600 hp and 1450 to 2050 lb - ft of torque, resulting in excellent power and performance that will benefit a variety of Western Star vocational and on-highway applications. “Western S t a r customers face s o m e of the toughest demands on the road and off, and w e’r e pleased that we

can offer a wide variety of engine solutions that match the durability and reliability of their Western Star trucks,” said Mike Jackson, general manager for Western Star. Built for exceptional dependability and long-range durability, the ISX15 features one of the lowest operating costs in its class. The engine’s XPI common-rail fuel system delivers a precise quantity of fuel at ultra-high pressures. When combined with the reduced restriction of the air-handling system, the new EPA 2010 version of the Cummins ISX15 will provide up to a 5 percent improvement in fuel economy. And similar to its Detroit Diesel counterparts, the Cummins ISX15 is ready to meet EPA 2010 engine regulations with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). SCR has proven to be an effective means to reduce NOx emissions. The Cummins SCR technology also uses diesel exhaust fluid to achieve NOx emissions at near-zero levels. Western Star customers will also benefit from the extensive Cummins support network, which has approximately 3,500 service locations across North America. The Cummins ISX15 will be available to order now, with production in March 2010 for ratings less than 500 hp, and July 2010 for ratings more than 500 hp.

ajority of transportation companies in Canada and USA come under small business operations. These operations manage small fleet of trucks doing local, short haul or long haul transportation. In the time of slower economy, these companies struggle to keep the operation running. This is the time when these companies need to realize the power of human assets. With the human power working with the company, it can strongly fight against slow economy. This economic instability can become the cause of company’s expansion in the area of human resources. In this way, consequence of instability in an organization is the propensity for that organization to expand. This organizational expansion is vital to the success of a company because it allows a company to offer employees a broader range of incentives, which help a company retain and recruit employees. If a company is unable to offer incentives such as health care, investment opportunities, and titles and power, then it will be difficult for that company to retain and recruit successful employees. Thus, instability leads to organizational expansion as a company attempts balance incentives and lure a broader range of employees. A variety of incentives is one way an employer can make itself more attractive to employees. Usually incentives are tangible rewards that promote employee motivation and retention. Maslow’s need hierarchy illustrates the importance of different incentives, with the most necessary items being at the bottom and the least important items at the top. Items such as health care and investing for retirement fall under security, which is towards the bottom of the need hierarchy; whereas prestige and power are located towards the top of the hierarchy. This need hierarchy shows how incentives are not only important, but there are different levels of need for different incentives. The difference in need is also influenced by the range of importance individuals place on

certain incentives. As a result of the difference in importance individuals place on certain incentives, instability is created within the company. This instability forces it to expand in order to meet the wide range of incentives employees demand. Since a larger company has more resources, it is easier for an expanding company to offer a broader range of health care and investment options and opportunities for an employee to gain prestige and power. A small company tends to have fewer financial resources and always has fewer people than a large company, which leads to a small company usually having fewer health care and investment options to offer employees. Money and size of employee pool also affects the ability for a person to gain prestige and power in a company. In a small company, there are fewer employees, which reduces the number of prestigious titles and positions available to employees. Thus, a small company is usually unable to match the range of incentives of a larger company because the small company has not expanded to the point of the large company. The large company’s expansion can be attributed to its efforts to stabilize the instability created by employees’ growing incentive demands.

PeopleNet Provides Ontario Ministry of Transportation eDriver Logs and BLU In-Cab PC Enforcement officer familiarity with industry-leading electronic-log application to facilitate inspections

P

eopleNet (www.peoplenetonline.com), a provider of innovative Internet-based and integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems for effective fleet management, has announced that it has provided the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s (MOT) Carrier Enforcement Program OďŹƒce eDriver Logs and a BLU in-cab PC to run it on. According to PeopleNet Canada President Jamie Williams, “To make sure that our customers are getting the most out of our industry-leading electronic-log application, we want to familiarize the organization’s enforcement oďŹƒcers with the technology to facilitate inspections. Since eDriver Logs is a highly popular tool used by carriers to assure HOS compliance, it’s important to us that all transportation law enforcement agencies understand how it works.â€? As an effective tool for HOS compliance, eDriver Logs helps PeopleNet customers reduce driver out-of-service, as well as liability and damage insurance rates. In addition, the application improves driver productivity and safety results.

Alf Brown, Head Carrier Enforcement Liaison for the MTO’s Carrier Enforcement Program OďŹƒce noted, “As more drivers use electronic logs, our enforcement oďŹƒcers are encountering this technology more frequently in their vehicle inspections.

eterbilt has developed an all new proprietary stainless steel, cowl mounted air cleaner and cap. Available now, Peterbilt customers can expect improved performance and style from the newly engineered air cleaner, with increased durability and serviceability. “Peterbilt engineered the new proprietary stainless steel air cleaner to address our customers’ desire for uncompromised performance and durability,” said Larry Reding, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing. “The new cleaner was designed using the latest materials and technologies to maximize engine life and provide ease of maintenance and filter replacement.” The new stainless steel air cleaner was developed in conjunction with Donaldson and is available on Peterbilt Models 389, 388 and 367, in both 13 and 15 inch diameters for single or dual side installations.

PACCAR Launches PACCAR MX Engine PACCAR has announced the introduction of the PACCAR MX engine to be installed in Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks this summer. The PACCAR MX engine is designed to deliver industry leading performance, reliability, and fuel efficiency to Kenworth and Peterbilt customers worldwide. “PACCAR’s 50 years of engine development and manufacturing expertise have established the company as one of the leading diesel engine manufacturers in the world,” said Jim Cardillo, PACCAR president. “Over 125,000 PACCAR MX engines are successfully operating in DAF trucks globally.” Cardillo added, “The PACCAR MX is designed to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2010 emissions regulations and has accumulated over 50 million test miles in rigorous and severe conditions in North America. PACCAR is pleased to be launching this proven, industry-leading engine in Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks.” The PACCAR MX engine is available with a horsepower range of 380hp-485hp and torque outputs up to 1,750 lb-ft. This power range, combined with excellent fuel efficiency, high reliability, durability, lightweight design and low cost of ownership makes it an ideal choice for both over-the-road line-haul and vocational applications. “We look forward to delivering our integrated and optimized best-in-class drivetrain to our customers,” shared Craig Brewster, PACCAR assistant vice president. “The PACCAR MX engine generates up to 485hp with excellent performance across a wide range of engine speeds. In addition to performance excellence, PACCAR pioneered the design and manufacture of high-strength compacted graphite iron (CGI) used in the MX engine block and cylinder head. This premium material is more durable and lighter

than conventional grey iron resulting in superior power-to-weight performance,” added Brewster. “The electronically controlled high pressure fuel injection system delivers excellent fuel economy and assists in achieving the low emissions required by the EPA. The engine’s block design and rear gear train contributes to significantly lower in-cab noise levels resulting in a more comfortable driver environment. The integral engine brake provides powerful performance across a broad range of engine RPM’s.” SCR and EGR Solution for EPA 2010 Engine Emission Requirements The PACCAR MX engine uses Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in combination with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to meet the EPA 2010 diesel engine emissions regulations. “The combination of SCR and EGR provides Kenworth and Peterbilt customers with a highly efficient solution to meet the EPA’s 2010 requirements. PACCAR’s world-class vehicles have successfully operated Euro 4 and Euro 5 certified SCR emission systems for several years,” noted Dan Sobic, PACCAR executive vice president. PACCAR Global Dealer Network Provides Outstanding Customer Support Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF dealers provide exceptional parts and service support for the PACCAR MX engine at more than 1,900 service locations. The PACCAR MX has been designed for ease of maintenance, which results in improved efficiency in dealers’ service facilities. The dealerships have certified PACCAR MX trained technicians and a complete inventory of service parts. The PACCAR Call Centers provides technical support 24/7 – 365 days a year.

Navistar Parts' "Buy More, $ave More" Promotion Offers Parts Rebates to Purchasers of Used Vehicles Owners can save up to $1,800 on parts and service purchases

B

uying a used truck or bus at an International dealer, IC Bus dealer or International Used Truck Center opens the door to significant parts rebates and special offers through a new promotion from Navistar Parts. The “Buy More, $ave More” program, which kicked off Feb. 1, offers purchasers of used trucks and buses a tiered rebate program on parts purchased at participating International or IC Bus dealerships in the United States and Canada through Oct. 31, 2010. “It’s never been more rewarding to buy a used vehicle from your International, IC Bus dealer or International Used Truck Center,” said Michael A. Cancelliere, senior vice president and general manager for Navistar Parts in North America. “This new program gives buyers an opportunity to receive up to 20 percent in rebates on parts purchases – good for any vehicle they may own -- plus $50 off a Performance PM or preventative maintenance service and a welcome kit.”

Dedicated to high standards in safety and operation for employees, customers and the community

Owners purchasing a used vehicle from Feb. 1 through July 31, 2010, will receive their welcome kit, with rebate information, a $50 service coupon and premiums including a road atlas, shop towels and PΛRTSMΛRT product catalog. Those enrolled in the program will receive a 15 percent rebate on the first $5,000 of qualifying parts purchases between Feb. 1 and Oct. 31, 2010, in the form of an International Advantage card good towards parts and service purchases at International or IC Bus dealers in North America. Parts purchases between $5,001 and $10,000 receive a 20 percent rebate. “We’re investing in our customers. The ‘Buy More, $ave More’ program can mean up to $1,800 in parts and service savings for a used vehicle owner,” said Cancelliere. “All the more reason to make that investment in a used vehicle and return to the International or IC Bus dealer for parts and service.” For more information, visit www.navistarpartsandservice. com/bmsm.html.

MVASIST Gives Mack & Volvo Customers More Uptime, Control Over Service Experience MVASIST from Volvo & Mack Trucks will now give truck fleet managers control over their service experiences to improve vehicle uptime, reduce time fleets spend on the service process and increase customer satisfaction. MVASIST is an Internet-based system that keeps together all information and communication about a truck service event in one online folder to streamline communications and the service write-up process. It allows service providers to deliver consistent service processes. Fleet- and truck-specific information is tied to each service event. And MVASIST furnishes a complete record of in-context communication between service provider and customer available on line, so all involved in the service event are on the same page. This reduces misunderstandings and delays.

THE FIRST AND ONLY PAPER IN NORTH AMERICA THAT COVERS TRANSPORTATION IN ENGLISH & RUSSIAN Russian trucker’s paper • Газета русского тракера

Äîðîãà·Road

The results are consistent, complete and professional estimates of service recommendations, including standard repair times, regardless of which dealer in the Mack & Volvo network performs the service. At the same time, MVASIST makes dealer service personnel aware of fleet and vehiclespecific information, such as warranty coverage, previous service performed, and negotiated parts pricing. MVASIST addresses concerns and complaints that were voiced by fleet managers about the typical industrywide truck service customer experience in a study released by the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) of the American Trucking Associations in 2009. More than 240 dealers in the Volvo & Mack network are currently enrolled in the MVASIST system, with full participation planned for the end of 2010. With MVASIST, all communications, estimates and related documents are linked to the service event and the vehicle involved. Customers and service providers can see the entire online communications record for each service event (known as “in-context communications”), ensuring busy managers avoid the downtime caused by voice mail and “telephone tag”.

www.dorogaroad.com info@dorogaroad.com

MVASIST makes detailed information about each truck and fleet available to Volvo & Mack service providers the moment a truck enrolled in the system comes into the dealership. This includes vehicle identification number (VIN), specific information regarding each truck, the customer’s authorization and approval process, contact information, fleet-specific inspection checklists, MVPreferred parts pricing and more.

CSA 2010 By Bruce Outridge

W

ell, the buzz is out. Did you hear it? “CSA 2010”, it’s here. If you haven’t heard about it, you will. Especially if you’re a U.S. bound carrier. The rules are changing for those of you running south of the border. Now I am not trying to scare you, there will be enough people trying to do that in the future, but I do want to share some thoughts with you. While I was sitting in a conference last month being presented the information on CSA 2010, I got thinking. If you’re operating as a professional driver/operator you have nothing to fear. Why? Because this does not change anything you should be doing as a carrier, driver, or operator. Now everyone says our lives will change for the worst and our lives will be destroyed. Ha! Ha! Excuse me for laughing, that’s exactly what the U.S. government wants you to think. Now there are companies which will fall into this line that should be very afraid. Those companies however, should because they operate in a way that brings on that fear. For those of you operating professionally it should be business as usual. So let’s talk about this CSA 2010 stuff for a little bit. First CSA 2010 for the record means “Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010”. It is going to affect how carriers and eventually drivers are rated for safety. That rating will determine the audit process for the U.S. Department of Transportation. All this is going to do is level the playing field for carriers so all will be evaluated by the same criteria. Eventually, they will also include

drivers in the rating criteria but that’s down the road. I’m sure you’re asking how this will affect me if I currently am a carrier or a driver. Let’s visualize that for a moment. Say, you’re a carrier, your safety rating is determined by incidents, crashes, and inspection data and it almost always falls back to the carrier. It was not based upon preventative measures necessarily but on playing catch up. In other words if once you messed up enough times the big guys

will come knocking at the door. With the new system, it’s more preventative because they are tracking incidents and driver behaviours and knocking at your door before the crash comes, hopefully. If you’ve been operating hoping you won’t get caught and praying you won’t get that midnight call from the authorities that there has been an accident then now is the time to change. It all starts with attitude and the right one, the professional one,

Bruce Outridge has been in the transportation industry for twenty five years. He now operates Outridge Consulting Services helping create professional drivers for the transportation industry. For more details please visit www.outridge.ca.

the attitude of leaders. How do you do that? Once you’ve changed your attitude, then evaluate your processes starting with your safety programs. You do have a safety program? Evaluate your training schedule, your performance, and maintenance costs. If you have kept good records, this shouldn’t be a problem. Maybe some equipment changes are in order. After this is done, your people are the next evaluation. Improve on those items that need improvement and attention. If some drivers aren’t cutting the mustard then drastic measures may be necessary. The new CSA rules set for the future will be targeting drivers more so than companies for on-road performance. For driver improvement this will take a professional attitude, knowledge of the regulations, time management skills, knowing your job, equipment and customers will be the key to becoming the professional required to keep a good record for the future. Imagine for a moment that they do get around to rating drivers. Everyone is focusing on the bad ones. What if you have good ones? You could write your own ticket as to the companies you could haul for; it could mean more money in your pocket, and better environment for you and your drivers. Remember, professionalism is the wave of the future.

Industry Success Story by Melroy Coelho

Melroy Coelho is the product marketing manager with TransCore Link Logistics. His experience includes working with multi national companies like 3M & ABB in Brand Management, Marketing Research, Business Development, Consulting and Strategic Business Management. Melroy can be reached at 1-800-263-6149 ext 1115.

The following article is a brief interview with Paul Pires, National Training Manager for G.N. Johnston Equipment Co Ltd. Q: Paul, please tell me a little bit about your company and your products:

on where we want to market ourselves in very strategic ways that will ensure fiscal responsibility to our stake holders.

A: G. N. Johnston Equipment Co. Ltd has been an innovator and industry leader in Materials Handling since 1954. Today we are an industry leader in the narrow-aisle lift truck market. We are Canada-wide with 14 branch locations from coast to coast. From fleet management and equipment overhauls to operator safety training and attractive leasing options, we work with customers every step of the way to reduce costs. Our success is thanks to the quality of our products and the strength of our people. From sales personnel to administrative staff and service technicians, Johnston people are carefully trained professionals who work to the highest standards and provide expert advice. In early 2000, BT Industries and its subsidiaries (including the Raymond Corporation and Johnston Equipment) were purchased by Toyota - making Toyota the world leader in the field of materials handling equipment.

Q: What are some of the challenges you face?

Q: How would you describe your job? A: My job as the National Training Manager is to ensure that Johnston Equipment provides a well versed and very professional approach to national training services to our customer base. We are changing the way we provide training from a national & provincial perspective and really providing an all in one solution with completely customized training programs. This allows our customers to reduce risk, liability and safety concerns with respect to their material handling equipment and that makes my position very rewarding. In essence, we are assisting our customers to comprehensively train their staff and bring hazard awareness within their facilities to the fore front of their operations. Q: Describe a typical day at work for you? A: My day to day activities change based on where I am. I could be in Vancouver this week and the following week in St. Johns Newfoundland - this active travel schedule keeps me close to our customers and on top of our training objectives nationally. I manage the business out of our Head Office in Mississauga, ON and maintain relationships with our national customers and with my national Trainers & Coordinators. I review current market trends and provide feedback to my Management team 32

A: One of our greatest challenges is communicating our extensive product offerings to our customers and prospects. Once we have successfully done that, our customers truly see the benefits and cost savings associated with our training programs. With respect to the current market conditions, we have been impacted as well and want to stay strong and lean during these uncertain economic times. Q: How did you get into the Industry? A: Well, I started in this industry as a shipper/receiver when I was 17 years old for Aikenheads Home Improvement Warehouse (now formally known as Home Depot Canada). I worked my way up to Divisional Forklift Trainer (AKA “the peer program”) based on class 1 – 4 equipment. After almost 10 years with Home Depot Canada I moved to Best Buy Canada and was hired at the same capacity – Divisional Trainer & ASM. I joined G.N Johnston Equipment Co Ltd. as a National Trainer and now hold the Role of National Training Manager. Collectively I have been in the material handling industry for almost 18 years. Q: What aspect of your job do you enjoy? A: I enjoy meeting new people and industry leaders who are looking to make an impact in this business and to further assist our industry in making our work environments a much safer place. Regarding recruitment, retention and training – what do you see as the hot issues today and what do you expect in the coming months. I see all three of these categories being “hot buttons” in the industry and feel that we are really doing our part to assist companies in the “training” category. In the coming months, specifically with the training category, I see a lot more companies looking for industry experts to take on this initiative for them. They know the liabilities and risks involved with not doing it properly and we are certainly the company that can provide these training solutions for them.

Optimism at

million Ritchie Bros. US$138 used equipment auction in Orlando

M

ore than 7,000 people from over 75 countries registered to bid on US$138 million of used equipment and trucks sold at an unreserved public auction conducted by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers in Orlando, Florida from February 15 – 19, 2010. Thousands of people visited Ritchie Bros.’ permanent auction site to inspect more than 7,200 equipment items and bid in person; thousands more participated online at rbauction.com. Bidders from outside Florida purchased US$118 million of equipment (85 percent), including US$61 million purchased by out-of-country bidders (44 percent). “There was such a positive atmosphere at the auction: we had a huge international crowd at the site, with active bidding online; buyers were impressed with the selection of equipment and the fairness of the bidding and sellers were pleased with solid pricing,” said Steve Kriebel, Ritchie Bros. Regional Manager. “We had thousands of people bidding on all five days of the auction, and they came from all over North America and the world. Thanks to the size and diversity of the bidding

audience at the auction, pricing was strong across all equipment categories. This auction exceeded our expectations in pretty much every respect. We experienced overall growth in Orlando in 2009 compared to the prior year, and 2010 is off to a good start. ” Ritchie Bros. sold equipment and trucks on behalf of more than 600 consignors, including Young’s Contracting of Niceville, Florida. Co-owners Laverne Young and his son Kirk sold several million dollars worth of equipment in the Orlando auction, including wheel loaders, excavators, articulated dump trucks, crawler tractors and trucks. “There’s less work so we’re downsizing, but we’re not out of business,” said Mr. Young. “We were very thorough about this decision. We talked to four or five companies and Ritchie Bros. came up with the best plan for us. We are very, very happy with the results of the auction. About 95 percent of the items sold for more than we expected – and some went for a lot more. I think the amount of people at the auction, and the number of places they come from, is the biggest factor.”

Canada, “My wife is a software expert but I’m into the media line which is not so well-paying abroad. So I’ve signed up for Yoga classes and for the next three months I’ll perfect my asanas, so that I can make some money when we finally move.”

THE GLASS CEILING: Mandira Bedi dazzles in the contemporary diamond jewellery created by MAIA — the soon to be launched fine jewellery store in Khar

On keeping a low profile of late:

My sister Radhika is in America. I was holidaying there with my family. Apart from that, I was very much here, working. We’ve started an NGO that’s focussing on women and children’s issues. Also, I’ve been busy with Bhojpuri films. My first movie that released there was a blockbuster. What a lot of people don’t know is that Bhojpuri films have a huge market in UP and Bihar. One film is directed by Saroj Khan. In the other film I’m working

on, Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini will make guest appearances. There’s also a Punjabi film that I’m doing. Till now, I have worked in nine different languages and I want to work in the remaining languages as well.

Rumours that a top south star finished her career there: Nothing of that sort happened. These were different kinds of rumours.

What went wrong down south?

I had the number one position for 12 years in the South Indian film industry. There comes a point when you want to move on and do something different. I wanted to do Hindi films which I am doing. Just that at times I feel Hindi movies are overrated. Maybe because they give national and international fame. But regional movies emphasise tradition and culture. My Bhojpuri movies always have a social message.

It’s just that at that time I took a break, went into art of living, started teaching it. When you are on top and quit, speculations arise. It was my wish. I wanted to do something else.

Allegations about underworld links that came up sometime ago: Allegations are just allegations. It’s all a part of life. One has to take them with a pinch of salt. If I’ve done no wrong, I have nothing to worry about. The law will takes its own course, if it has to.

OUT OF ACTION? Actor Nagma

End of her political career? When the controversy

Personal relationships not working out:

I am truly blessed. As a person, I am completely satisfied and fulfiled. Each experience of mine has taught me to live life in a more enriched manner. I thank God for simply bringing each and every person into my life and teaching me the value of relationships.

So also, with mint chutneys, kundru achaars, chicken tikka masala et al, the Great Curry Western has been initiated, in a big way. According to Sulakshana Arya, who runs cookery classes in Malad, “It’s interesting that in the last one year I have enrolled around 80 per cent students for the traditional cuisine segment. And out of these almost half of them are either in the process of relocating out of India or are planning to.” The logic is simple. When in the global village, sell your speciality. Agrees entrepreneur Sheryl Gonsalvez, who runs a garment business of Lucknow’s chikan work in Australia, “My craft is essentially Indian. And before leaving for Australia, I attended a sixmonth designing course in chikankari. Now I design according to what my clientele wants and then get the final garments finished in my workshop in Lucknow and sent back. I really lucked out by specialising in the very ethnic craft.” Strategising at the outset is another thing, hopeful NRIs do. Take for instance Vishal Mishra, a

‘Hindi movies are overrated’

erupted, I was campaigning for the Congress. I consciously decided to step away from what I was doing. There were parliamentary sessions going on. But nothing about me came up or became an issue. I believe in doing my work. About a career in politics, if it has to, it will happen. I had never planned anything in life. As long as I live I would like to make a difference.

E.coli Bacteria By Dr Christopher H. Singh

I

f you have been paying attention to the news lately, you will have noticed that E.coli has been mentioned often. So, what exactly is E.coli? Basically, it is the short form of group of bacteria called Escherichia coli. Most of the strains of E.coli are harmless and normally live in the intestines of healthy humans and animals. However, there are a few strains of E.coli that can have very serious effects on people and even cause death. The majority of cases of E.coli infections are caused by eating contaminated food such as undercooked ground beef or unpasteurized milk. Healthy beef and dairy cattle may have E.coli present in their intestines. Thus, it is possible that the meat may become contaminated during the slaughtering process. That being said, it is important not to undercook your beef even if you like it rare. Using a meat thermometer is a good way to make sure that your meat has reached a suitable temperature. Another common way to acquire an E.coli infection is from person to person. If someone has this infection and fails to wash their hands well with soap after using the washroom, they may pass along the germs to other people when they touch things such as door knobs or food. Again, we see how important it is to wash our hands frequently and thoroughly. By far the most dangerous source of E.coli infection is contaminated water. This was the case in the town of Walkerton, Ontario in the year 2000 when the water supply was contaminated by farm runoff. It was

severely dehydrated, you may have to go to the hospital and have fluids administered through an IV.

reported that at least seven people died from E.coli infections and another 2,500 people became ill. The symptoms of an E.coli infection begin about seven days after you are infected with the germ. Normally, the first sign is severe abdominal cramping which begins suddenly. Shortly after that, watery diarrhea which may be bloody starts. At this point, some people experience fever, nausea and vomiting. If you have any of these symptoms it is important to seek help from your physician as soon as possible. If your physician suspects an E.coli infection he/she will take a stool sample to see if any of the bacteria are present. Currently, there are no specific medications for E.coli infections. In fact, most doctors will not recommend taking any medications to stop the diarrhea as they will not allow the body to get rid of the bacteria. The best treatment is drinking plenty of fluid and rest. The main complication of this type of infection is dehydration. If you are

In order to reduce your chances of being exposed to E.coli, you can follow few simple precautions. Firstly, wash all raw produce thoroughly using running water and a scrub brush. It is not necessary to use soap or commercial cleaners to wash produce, plain water is fine. Similarly, wash your hands, utensils and kitchen surfaces with hot, soapy water before and after handling fresh produce or raw meat. Keeping raw foods away from foods that are about to be eaten is also a good idea. When eating ground beef, make sure that it is well done and cooked to at least 160 F. There should be no pink showing in the center. Never place cooked hamburgers on the same plate you used for the raw patties. Finally, avoid drinking unpasteurized milk or untreated water. Swallowing water from lakes, streams and even swimming pools is not recommended as it can be contaminated with feces. As you can see, E.coli bacteria can lead to very serious illnesses and should not be taken lightly. As professional truck drivers you are constantly on the move and come in contact with many people on a daily basis. Thus, it is even more important for you to keep in mind these simple hints as they well help to reduce your chances of getting and E.coli infection. Until next month, drive safely!
