The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) new tipsheet helps motor carriers understand what a warning letter is and recommends actions they can take to improve safety compliance. Warning letters are an important part of the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) interventions process. FMCSA sends warning letters to motor carriers who have identifiable, but not yet severe, safety problems.
The new tipsheet, which will be useful for motor carriers who receive a warning letter, can be found at http://csa.fmcsa.dot.gov/Documents/WarningLetterTipsheet.pdf.
In addition, a more general factsheet about the warning letter intervention can be found at http://csa.fmcsa.dot.gov/Documents/CSA2010_WarningLetterFactsheet.pdf. This factsheet provides a sample warning letter and some frequently asked questions.
