CSA 2010: FMCSA'S New Safety Program
For the remainder of the year, and throughout 2010, we will monitor and inform you of developments with Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010, or CSA 2010.
This new FMCSA safety program is currently being pilot-tested to replace the existing SafeStat and safety fitness rating systems. CSA 2010 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. When the program is fully rolled out by the end of 2010, FMCSA will have a new nationwide system for making the roads safer for motor carriers and the public.
The closer we get to the implementation of the new program, the more we are being presented with updates from a variety of sources. At the Ohio Trucking Association's Annual Convention in Wheeling, WV, Jeff Davis, VP of Safety and Human Resources for Jet Express, Inc., gave a comprehensive CSA 2010 presentation to all attendees. At the September Safety Management Council meeting of the Indiana Motor Truck Association, Greg Shipman of Vertical Alliance Group gave an update on CSA 2010 and spoke about his company's new website, http://www.csa2010.com/, designed to help motor carriers learn about the FMCSA's new initiative.
Over the course of the coming months, The Dispatch will provide information and updates as the development of CSA 2010 continues, including articles and material from various professionals throughout the industry.
