CSA stands for Comphrensive Safety Analysis.
CSA is a program of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) designed to gather data about carriers and drivers to help the agency improve the effectiveness of its compliance and enforcement programs. The goal is to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities on the nation's highways.
What's new and different about CSA 2010 is that it not only considers carriers, it also focuses on drivers. So while your employer may be used to being trakcked by the FMCSA, you will be subject to tracking by the FMCSA for the first time. By tracking both carriers and drivers, The FMCSA believes they can create a more complete picture of compliance.
The CSA 2010 system consists of four major components:
Drivers Working toward a Positive Score
The score a driver receives can have an impact on your carrier and your career. So how do you ensure that your score is positive and that you're not on the receiving end of the one of the FMCSA's intervention procedures?
Since most of the data gathered about drivers is collected during roadside inspections, your first goal should be to have positive roadside inspections go into the system--that is, roadside inspections with no violations!
