"there isn't any such thing as CSA Compliant"
Midlothian, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2010
David Saunders, who has been serving on the ATA CSA 2010 Task Force Committee, has come across a reoccurring issue that has him troubled.
Facts show Motor Carrier industry leads FMCSA by a score of “60” to “Zero” and the Public Citizens are in disbelief as the watch these scores unfold.
Ordinarily in sports the higher the score, the more you are winning, but with CSA, the higher the score, the more you are losing, and no one likes a losing team, especially the fans, known as the public.
David quotes, "As I continue to almost read daily in any given press release or article about “This Scorecard and that Scorecard”, I glaze in amazement that no one is talking about the unintended consequences that comes with those Scorecards."
Make no mistake, CSS get's the same request in their services for a “Scorecard” so the market is reacting to what they believe is essential to survive or adhere to the needs to comply with CSA 2010.
David Saunders is proud to announce that Compliance Safety Systems has both CSA 2010 management services carrier and driver services to help prove due diligence with the new mandates.
In reality, David shares "there isn’t any such thing as “CSA Compliant”, since there are no “standards” by which a court, shipper, or consumer has agreed to accept, not to mention the very agency that is enacting the program."
See latest FMCSA update http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov for more details.
So when the dust settles, how much money and time will have been spent investing in those IT programs, when it could have been spent fixing equipment and training drivers……or so a Plaintiff attorney is certain to ask a juror panel of 12, or a shipper who is needing their freight hauled with a safe carrier?
David goes on to say, "We are always drilled by attorneys and HR professionals, to be careful what Policies you have in place. If you have one, you better be using it consistently."
So at what point will “Scorecards Dictate Policies” that will not be able to ever fully accomplish its original intent and begin to react in a negative fashion instead of a positive one.
