Carriers believing that CSA may never become a reality are now face-to-face with the potential of an FMCSA intervention. Compliance and safety have always been our focus - we’ve been helping fleets prepare for CSA since 1953.
Neenah, Wisconsin (Vocus/PRWEB) March 24, 2011
The FMCSA’s CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability) initiative is here and as carriers continue to grasp its reality, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is fielding questions and guiding carriers on both the facts and myths behind CSA. The increase in roadside inspections and factors to successfully handle a roadside inspection are pressing topics among the company’s more than 300,000 clients.
Rustin Keller, Director of Business Services, said, “We’re hearing from clients in every state now that the intervention letters have started arriving. Carriers believing that CSA may never become a reality are now face-to-face with the potential of an FMCSA intervention. Compliance and safety have always been our focus - we’ve been helping fleets prepare for CSA since 1953.”
Tom Bray, Senior Transportation Management Editor at J. J. Keller, said, “The FMCSA is looking to gather information on the more than 500,000 carriers in their database - so many carriers either have, or can expect to see, an increase in the number of roadside inspections. There are several reasons that a vehicle may be selected for a roadside inspection. The most common is the failed sight and sound inspection. Contrary to belief, random inspections are the least common type of roadside inspection. Generally the officer will have a reason for conducting an inspection such as failed sight and sound, existing violation, ISS score, and post accident.”
J. J. Keller will be hosting two upcoming complimentary webcasts, Facts & Myths of CSA, to highlight some of the more common questions that are being asked, dispel some CSA myths, and offer clarity on the enforcement model.
