More Webinars to Follow


The first in a series of Webinars on the implementation of CSA 2010 and its impact upon FMCSA’s workforce took place August 18.  Division Administrators from CSA 2010 test states discussed changes and answered questions from their peers including: 

  • Are the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) changing? ANSWER: No.  The Safety Fitness Determination (SFD) notice of proposed rulemaking is under development but CSA 2010 implementation is not dependent on SFD.
  •  Will Field Staff have to re-apply for new job positions?  ANSWER: No. Job and grades are not changing.
  • Will training on the new CSA 2010 safety measurement system and new interventions processes be provided?  ANSWER: Yes. Training for Field Staff and State partners will begin next year.

New SMS to Replace SafeStat

Get Up To Speed on the Coming Changes!



The Safety Measurement System (SMS) will replace SafeStat as the new tool to measure carriers’ safety performance when CSA 2010 rolls out next year.  SMS uses all safety-based inspection violations and applies time weighting and severity weighting to calculate measures. Each month, SMS measures two years of crash, inspection and violation data to evaluate carrier performance in seven safety behavior categories, called BASICS (Behavioral Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories).  The SMS uses the measures to assign a percentile ranking for all carriers within each BASIC. Today, SMS is working well in the six Operational Model test states.
