The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced today the launch of its Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP), a uniform investigatory system that will allow commercial motor carriers access to the crash and inspection records of all candidates seeking employment as commercial vehicle drivers.
In line with the upcoming, nation-wide implementation of Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 (CSA 2010) the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) launched Friday the initial phase of its Driver Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP). The PSP, one of the many changes the FMCSA is making to the current regulations governing large motor carriers, will enable carrier companies, including semi-trailer truck carriers, to have electronic access to the driving records for potential new drivers, specifically crash records and driver safety inspections.
In an effort to enhance and update the current safety standards of the trucking industry, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is in the process of finalizing and nationally introducing a initiative two years in the making. Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 (CSA 2010) is a program designed by the FMCSA which introduces an updated enforcement and compliance model aimed at improving the safety standards for the interstate operation of larger motor vehicles with the goal of reducing crashes, injuries and fatalities that occur nationwide.
