The Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Website now features the Driver Fitness Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) factsheet. This new factsheet is one in a series to better educate motor carriers, commercial motor vehicle drivers, and other industry stakeholders on CSA’s seven safety categories. Motor carriers and drivers can access this factsheet, as well as the other BASIC factsheets, on the Resources page.
The Driver Fitness BASIC factsheet focuses on drivers and their operation of commercial motor vehicles, including their driving, training, and medical qualifications, as outlined under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) Parts 383 and 391. Motor carriers and drivers can refer to this factsheet for additional information regarding what documents associated with this BASIC to keep in the event of a safety investigation, such as annual reviews of driving records, and how to proactively address driver fitness-related problems.
