Thread: What Do You Think of CSA Enforcement Program?

    What Do You Think of CSA Enforcement Program?

    FMCSA's Compliance, Safety, Accountability, or CSA aims to reduce accidents and fatalities by improving commercial truck and bus safety. With three major components: Measurement, Evaluation, and Intervention, what do you think, as truckers and owner-operators, are the biggest issues that CSA is facing?

    due to Compliance Safety Accountability program the trucking industry entered a new era of scrutiny and safety compliance.it assesses carriers and drivers — the Driver SMS is a tool for investigators to identify drivers with safety problems during carrier investigations .The aim of CSA is to measure carrier safety performance, identify potentially unsafe carriers, and prioritize them.its ultimate goal is reducing commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and injuries.

    hi marie , CSA program is facing biggest issues for both trucker & owner operator because safety is necessary for both.so trucker as well as owner operator should be aware about CSA program.

    For the first time since FMCSA’s Comprehensive, Safety and Accountability enforcement program went live in December 2010, the agency announced several changes to the program in a conference call with industry media on Friday.

    While the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association sees the changes as a “good start,” OOIDA Executive Vice President Todd Spencer says CSA is a flawed system that continues to disproportionately affect small-business trucking companies.

    “We’ve known it’s been a work in progress, and today’s announcement shows that the agency is listening to what truckers have been saying and taking those things into consideration,” said Todd Spencer, executive vice president of OOIDA. “However, impatience from truckers should not be unexpected when a program has real-life consequences on professionals that know of no other way to do business but safely.”

    The enforcement program, dubbed CSA, measures motor carrier compliance in a variety of categories called BASICs. Motor carrier violations from roadside inspections and information from crash reports are weighted and scored through the program’s methodology to arrive at a compliance ranking.

    The rankings in the seven BASIC categories determine whether the motor carrier will face enforcement action from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in the form of interventions.

    The agency, which launched a preview of proposed changes in March, outlined the result of that preview and accompanying comment period in the Friday conference call.

    Among the changes planned for full launch in December are:

    The Vehicle Maintenance BASIC will include cargo and load securement violations;
    The Cargo Securement BASIC will become a HM (hazmat) Compliance BASIC;
    The methodology will be updated to align with current intermodal regulations;
    Align relevant inspections with Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance inspections levels (for example, driver only inspections will not be included under the Vehicle Maintenance BASIC);
    Clarify the definition of hazmat carriers to ensure any carrier hauling a placardable amount of hazmat will be subject to the HM Compliance BASIC’s intervention thresholds;
    Update the definition of passenger carrier to better identify those operations; and
    Modify the SMS display to include more specific terminology in place of “inconclusive” and “insufficient” with information reflecting the number of inspections and unranked compliance.

    every body is taken care of the rules and regulations of new era of scrutiny and safety.The aim of the CSA is to provide measure carrier safety performance, identify potentially unsafe carriers, and prioritize them.its ultimate goal is reducing commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and injuries of the Drivers as well.

    The way FMCSA reports driver violations to the mega database that feeds data to the Pre-Employment Screening Program and Comprehensive, Safety, Accountability enforcement program is changing. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will publish a notice , that outlines the way violations will be reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System, or MCMIS.

    The aim of the CSA is to provide carrier safety performance, identify potentially unsafe carriers, and prioritize them. So trucker as well as owner operator should be aware about CSA program. So its main goal is to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities and injuries of the Drivers as well and brings in effect the rules and regulations of new era of scrutiny and safety.
