The Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Website now features the Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) factsheet. This new factsheet is the last in a series of seven 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.
This week the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is focusing on the Crash Indicator BASIC factsheet, which discusses high crash involvement, including frequency and severity, and which may indicate a problem that needs attention. Motor carriers and drivers can refer to this factsheet for additional information regarding the types of documents associated with this BASIC they should keep, such as Police Accident Reports, and for information about how to address crash-related problems including unsafe driving histories.
