Instructional Design Guides for Inspecting Electric and Hybrid-Electric Commercial Motor Vehicles

The objective of this project was to provide safety guidelines to commercial vehicle enforcement officers and inspectors when examining electric and hybrid-electric commercial vehicles for compliance. The most important aspect of this project was to provide safety guidelines to commercial vehicle enforcement officers and inspectors when examining such vehicles for compliance. Some of the hazards that such vehicles pose include serious injury (e.g., electrocution) from high voltage systems, quietness of approach, and “stranded energy.” The final training course is published and available at: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/research-and-analysis/technology/course-inspecting-high-voltage-electric-drive-commercial-motor.
