CSA training program launched for vocational truck drivers

Feb. 28, 2012

AlertDriving, a web-based driver risk management service provider, has released a Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) training program designed to reduce the risk of commercial drivers committing violations under CSA regulations. The program has been created specifically for medium-duty vocational truck drivers.

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) initiative to improve road safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities. Drivers are assessed under seven Behavior Analysis & Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs), focusing on driving behaviors that lead to crashes such as fatigued driving and driving under the influence.

Each of seven training modules in the AlertDriving training program has been strategically designed to address one of the BASICs. Using AlertDriving’s web-based training format, the program allows for companies to deploy a consistent training regime to their entire commercial fleet, as well as dispense violation-specific training modules immediately upon discovery of an infraction, according to Rob Martin, vice president of sales.

“With the new FMCSA initiative well underway, companies have a duty to make their drivers aware of their roles and increased responsibilities under CSA. AlertDriving’s training program will not only reduce the risk of drivers committing CSA violations and help them maintain a satisfactory scorecard, but will also reduce personal injury claims, generate significant costs saving and lower your company’s overall liability exposure,” Martin said.
