DOT Compliance Seminar

Are you prepared for a DOT Compliance Review? Do you understand your SMS BASIC scores?

CSA (Compliance, Safety & Accountability) is the new Safety Measurement System (SMS) that measures the previous two (2) years of roadside violations and crash data. With SMS, every inspection counts! Not just out-of-service violations, and both driver and carrier safety performance are measured.

The best way to prepare your fleet for these significant changes and protect your safety rating is to attend Smith System’s two-day DOT Compliance Seminar. We’ll walk you through the new CSA safety measurement system methodology and provide manuals and other materials for use as you implement procedures to help lower your BASIC scores. We’ll also cover existing requirements and best practices for accident reporting, record keeping, driver qualification, hours of service, controlled substances and alcohol testing (including D&A recognition training and certification), CDL requirements, driving rules and maintenance. (The seminar is very interactive, so be sure to come prepared with questions specific to your operations.)
