Seat Belts – 3 seconds to fasten – Do It!

November 11, 2013

We have been trying to wrap our heads around the numbers we have been seeing in our seatbelt observations over the last 3 months.

Between the cities of Atlanta, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, Chicago, Philadelphia, and New Jersey we are averaging one seatbelt violation in every three trucks observed. Thankfully we were able to observe and reach out to these drivers before they had a bigger problem on their hands in the event that a Department of Transportation officer spotted them. Your drivers are at risk of getting a violation, being put on probation, and most importantly killing themselves or someone’s loved one if they don’t wear their seat belt. This is by far the EASIEST violation in CSA to avoid. Please help us do just that.

Attached are two flyers you can post and distribute to your contractors  – one in English Seat Belt Myths and one in Spanish Seat Belt Myths – Spanish.

CSA Awareness Phone Training

November 11, 2013

As you may have seen the previous emails from Troy and Brent, I too am communicating the new time changes for the CSA Awareness Phone Training.  The change in times were made after feedback that we have received from Agents.

In response to this feedback, we will be implementing these new times to make it easier for the operators to call.  The biggest issue that we heard from the Agents was the 11AM time slot wasn’t good for them to call into.  That’s why we’ve decided to add 4PM EST (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and also 6PM EST (Tuesday and Thursday).  Also we will be a Saturday morning call as well – that will be 10/26 & 11/30 (both at 11AM EST).

These new times will go into effect starting this Monday, October 21st.  Please help us by communicating to your respective operators the importance of this training and the new times.

1)Please have your contractors watch the CSA 2013 Power Point on Pit Stop

2) Dial into our 2x daily conference call

PHONE: 559-546-1200

PIN: 766-398-089

MONDAY _ WEDNESDAY _ FRIDAY – 11AM & 4PM EASTERN ONLY

TUESDAY _ THURSDAY -> 11AM & 6PM EASTERN ONLY

CVSA Annual Roadcheck 2013 – are you ready?

May 31, 2013

June 4-6, 2013

Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial vehicles in the world, with approximately 14 trucks or buses being inspected, on average, every minute from Canada to Mexico during a 72-hour period in early June. Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors at 1,500 locations across North America perform the truck and bus inspections. CVSA sponsors Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico). Roadcheck is one of a series of activities that occur year round whereby CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.

Since its inception in 1988, the roadside inspections conducted during Roadcheck have numbered over 1 Million, resulting in more than 220 lives saved and 4,045 injuries avoided. It has also provided for the distribution of countless pieces of educational literature and safety events to educate industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial vehicle operations and the roadside inspection program.
