How do your drivers measure up to CSA?
CSA is an FMCSA initiative to ‘improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities related to commercial motor vehicles’. Within the Safety Measurement System (SMS), CSA scores are calculated using data from roadside inspections, including all safety-based violations, state-reported crashes, and the Federal motor carrier census to quantify performance in the Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs):
The seven BASIC behaviors that can lead to crashes include:
Carriers receive points for infractions including speeding, reckless driving, improper lane changes and inattention. Point values are determined based on the severity of the violation. Points are calculated monthly and then placed into percentiles from 0 (best) to 100 (worst), by comparing the BASIC measurements to similar carriers. Carries exceeding the threshold of 60 points will face fines and a possible intervention from the FMCSA.
An increase in FMCSA inspections and CSA regulations are driving companies to ensure they are preparing to be compliant. Companies with a certain level of hours-of-service violations are already being required to have electronic logs to ensure compliance and many other companies are taking preventive measures now to avoid being cited for violations.
