Dana Incorporated recently expanded its “Driveline Forensics” training series to include videos covering key safety and maintenance tips for electrified vehicles.
The new videos provide overviews on electric vehicle architecture and maintenance, as well as important vehicle servicing safety tips.
“Dana is focused on driving the shift toward electrification in the commercial vehicle market, and we believe these latest ‘Driveline Forensics’ videos are critical to supporting the maintenance professionals who are servicing electric vehicles in the field,” said Mark Wallace, president of Dana Commercial Vehicle Driveline Technologies.
“The safety of our people and products is our first priority, and this training installment succinctly covers critical safety and maintenance fundamentals for servicing hybrid and electric applications.”
As fleets and vehicle operators begin to adopt electrified technologies, the “Driveline Forensics” electrification videos are designed to provide vital information on the care and servicing of these vehicles, including:
- architecture overview, comprising vehicle charging instructions, high-voltage caution, and review of electric components;
- maintenance overview, inclusive of pre-operation maintenance inspection, electric vehicle maintenance schedule, and guidelines on servicing a vehicle after impact or water submersion; and
- safety tips covering high-voltage caution, personal protective equipment, primary shutdown method, and damaged battery procedures.
The series is hosted by TV personality Jessi Combs, a performance driver, metal fabricator, vehicle builder and industrial artist. Dana said will continue to expand the “Driveline Forensics” series throughout 2019. The videos are currently available at dana.com/commercial-vehicles under the Tools and Training tabs.
