CSA and Your Company
What Is Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)?
• The Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration’s (FMCSA) data-driven
safety compliance and enforcement
program
• Designed to improve safety and
prevent commercial motor vehicle
(CMV) crashes, fatalities, and injuries
• Helps carriers and drivers improve
safety compliance, so everyone gets
home safely
Raising Your Company’s Safety Standard
CSA’s Three Elements
•
The Safety Measurement System (SMS)
– Improves how FMCSA prioritizes carriers for intervention
– Includes more safety data; all safety-based violations found during roadside
inspections
– Organizes safety behaviors into seven categories: Behavior Analysis and Safety
Improvement Categories (BASICs)
•
Interventions Process
– Creates new, more efficient ways for FMCSA to interact with carriers and help
bring them into compliance, e.g., warning letters and Focused Investigations
•
Safety Fitness Determination (SFD)
– Current safety rating is coupled with an investigation
– New SFD (via rulemaking) would incorporate roadside inspection data
8
The Safety Measurement System (SMS)
• Helps FMCSA prioritize carriers for interventions
• SMS results are updated once per month based on the prior 24 months
– Violation and crash information are weighted based on their severity and
when these events occurred
•
Motor carriers DO NOT inherit past violations of newly hired drivers
•
You can view carrier SMS results on FMCSA’s public website
http://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/sms

The SMS (cont.)
Learn the BASICs
•
The SMS organizes carrier roadside inspection, crash, and investigation information into
seven BASICs
•
Your safety performance affects your company’s SMS results‒and your PSP record
•
The BASICs are a good way to remember many of the safety rules you must follow

Why Your Safety Record Matters
•
Your safety performance keeps
everyone safe on the road–including
you
•
Your performance is part of your
company’s record, so your safety
record means a lot
•
It’s up to you to ensure your safety
record is accurate
•
You have two different records:
1. State Motor Vehicle Record (MVR)
2. Federal Pre-Employment Screening
Program (PSP) record
36
Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) Record
– Screening tool that allows carriers and drivers to purchase a Federal
inspection and crash history record, which includes:
•
•
–
–
–
–
Five years of reportable crashes
Three years of inspections – violations recorded on inspections and clean
inspections
No Federal or State “score,” rating, or assessment associated with PSP
PSP does not directly impact your CDL
Carrier access to your record requires your consent
Obtain your record for a $10 fee at www.psp.fmcsa.dot.gov or for free via a
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
37
Ensure the Accuracy of Your Safety Information
1. State Information (citation/tickets) State Court
–
If you are aware of an error, contest citation information in State court; otherwise information goes on your
MVR, possibly impacting your CDL
2. Federal Information (recorded violations) DataQs
–
Request a review of Federal information on your PSP via DataQs
–
Visit FMCSA’s DataQs Website: https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov/ (register for free)
–
File a Request for Data Review (RDR) on an inspection and/or reportable crash
–
Provide supporting documentation when filing an RDR
–
RDRs are reviewed by the State where the inspection/crash occurred
If you receive a Federal violation and a State citation/ticket for the same infraction:
–
Handle them separately using the methods listed above
38
Proposed Adjudicated Citations Policy
• Improves the quality and uniformity of violation information in
FMCSA systems (e.g., MCMIS)
• Allows FMCSA to upload the results of State citations
associated with violations that the court has adjudicated
• Establishes specific procedures for processing RDRs for
adjudicated citations
• FMCSA invited industry and the public to provide feedback on
proposed policy (Federal Register Notice, December 2, 2013)
39
Non-Government − Driver Safety Information
• Third Parties and Carriers Evaluating Drivers
– Carriers and independent third parties combine PSP and other driver
information, and call it “CSA score” or “CSA driver scorecard”
– This “score” or evaluation is NOT issued by the Federal or State
government
– There is no universal evaluation method
•
Ask your carrier how you are being evaluated
40
Take Away Points
The SMS organizes carrier roadside inspection, crash, and investigation information into seven
BASICs
Your safety performance affects your company’s SMS results‒and your PSP record
The BASICs are a good way to remember many of the safety rules you must follow

National Registry of Cert. Medical
Examiners
What is the National Registry?
• Requires all medical examiners be
– Trained, tested and certified
• Ensures
– Medical examiners know qualification requirements
•
Medical standards, expiration dates, waivers, etc.
– Drivers are properly examined
Why do we need a National Registry?
• Make highways safer – reduce crashes
• Ensure drivers are qualified - Investigations have
shown that some drivers involved in crashes had
disqualifying medical conditions
• Ensure examiners are trained and certified to
determine whether a CMV’s drivers health meets
established standards.
