With millions of truck drivers sharing the road with more than 250 million motorists, the stakes are high. That’s why it’s essential that trucking fleets know how to remain in compliance with federal safety regulations. This not only helps reduce the number and severity of truck involved crashes, but also provides the benefits of having better safety scores.
Get your free copy of “The PrePass Guide to FMCSA BASICs and Your Safety Scores.” You will learn about the seven Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs) and how they work in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program and Safety Measurement System (SMS).
This guide includes details on how fleets can improve their Inspection Selection System (ISS) score, which is used to determine weigh station bypass eligibility and prioritize trucks for safety enforcement. The guide is a compilation of all five of the PrePass whitepapers offered in the “What Carriers Need to Know About SMS BASICs” series. It begins with an overview of how the CSA BASICs and ISS calculations work and what an “alert” means in any of the BASICs categories.
As you read this guide, you will discover four key aspects of ISS score calculation that you need to understand – aspects that offer the potential to improve your score in any BASIC. Also, each section of the guide concludes with a quick quiz and some helpful hints to improve motor carrier safety scores.
