J.J. Keller & Associates Inc. announced a Driver’s Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) auditing service (www.jjkellerservices.com/DVIR) in which its scans, audits and archives vehicle inspection documents for clients that seek a cost-effective way to monitor regulatory compliance, and to improve safety and maintenance in their organizations.
As part of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, Part 396, commercial motor vehicle drivers are required to complete a DVIR form each day that a vehicle has been operated to document any defects in the vehicle driven. If a driver indicates that there are vehicle defects, the form is reviewed and signed by a mechanic who determines if repairs are necessary, and then by the subsequent driver who validates that the documented defects have been corrected.
J.J. Keller’s scanned DVIR forms are audited for compliance – including the presence of required signatures – violations are documented, and the images are archived and retained for the required retention period. Clients are able to access comprehensive compliance reports and vehicle inspection form images through an online interface from J.J. Keller, based in Neenah, Wis.
