CSA 2010 Compliance

Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010, CSA 2010, is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) safety program to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes. It introduces a new enforcement and compliance model that allows FMCSA and its state partners to contact a larger number of carriers earlier in order to address safety problems before crashes occur. Pro Source will insure you total compliance with these new regulations, including: Safety Measurement System (SMS). SMS will assess each carrier’s safety performance in each of the Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs): Unsafe Driving, Fatigued Driving (Hours-of-Service), Driver Fitness, Controlled Substances/Alcohol, Vehicle Maintenance, Cargo-Related, and Crash Indicator. SMS calculates a measure for each BASIC by combining the time and severity weighted violations/crashes (more recent violations are weighted more heavily) normalized by exposure (e.g. number of power units or number of relevant inspections). Applying a similar approach to that used in SafeStat, SMS converts each carrier’s BASIC measures into percentiles based on rank relative to peers. SMS will be updated monthly.; Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) PSP is a new FMCSA program mandated by Congress that is designed to assist the motor carrier industry in assessing individual operators’ crash and serious safety violation history as a pre-employment condition. The program is voluntary. It is not part of CSA 2010.
