Neenah, WI (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
The team of transportation experts at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., the nation’s most respected name in risk and regulatory management, is urging carriers to go beyond the ‘scorecard’ for CSA 2010 and to understand the importance of taking steps to improve their scores. J. J. Keller’s team of experts has fielded thousands of questions from transportation professionals regarding the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s CSA 2010 initiative and what they can do to prepare.
Thomas Bray, Transportation Management Editor at J. J. Keller, says, “Knowing your score is only the first step in the process. Many carriers are now finding, after viewing their BASIC scores through the FMCSA’s website, that a good SafeStat score does not necessarily translate into a good score under CSA 2010. This new initiative is designed to use most of the ‘good stuff’ from the old system and bring in new components to overcome many of the shortcomings of the SafeStat system. Therefore, it is important to go beyond the scorecard – to not only understand how your score translates under CSA 2010 but the steps you can take to improve your score.”
“It’s important that carriers develop corrective actions to address the areas of concern and that they implement programs to avoid preventable violations. Driver training, accident investigation, and policy and procedure development can all aid in the improvement of a carrier’s overall safety management program,” said Kathy Close, Transportation Associate Editor at J. J. Keller.
J. J. Keller’s CSA Management Suite goes beyond the scorecard by providing actionable steps to improve safety performance under CSA 2010. Tim Trivette, Director of Safety for Access America Transport Inc., said, “CSA Management Suite has been a great asset to me as we prepare to manage our operation under CSA 2010. The service not only gives me a quick snapshot of my BASIC scores, but it provides me with a drilled down analysis for each of the BASICs. I am able to see details on which drivers and violations are affecting my scores and, from there, I can implement changes to lower my scores. The true benefit of the CSA Management Suite is that it isn’t just telling me where deficiencies exist; the service provides me with actionable steps that I can take to improve my safety performance.”
