Safety performance data of Motor Carriers and Drivers will be grouped into seven categories called BASIC, Behavioral Analysis Safety Improvement Categories which include:
Based on a carrier’s score within each BASIC, the measurement system would trigger when the Agency should begin to intervene with a motor carrier, and when its performance has reached the proposed “unfit” threshold.
Once the measurement system signals the need to intervene, CSA 2010 would draw upon a broad array of progressive interventions that are designed to advise the motor carrier or driver that their safety performance has come to the government’s attention. These steps are meant to improve unsafe behavior early.
Although Commercial Trucking Companies vary in their hiring process of CDL drivers most require that they adhere to a certain standard.
