J.J. Keller & Associates Inc. will be launching CSA Management Suite on June 1 to help transportation professionals prepare for and manage their safety compliance program under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 initiative. This online service will provide a suite of tools and resources dedicated to the CSA 2010 initiative and aimed at helping carriers improve their safety performance.
Under CSA 2010, carrier scores will be comprised based on crash reports provided by the states for U.S. Department of Transportation recordable crashes, roadside inspection reports provided by the states (and all violations listed on the reports) and violations discovered during interventions conducted by state or federal investigators. J.J. Keller says its CSA Management Suite will interact with the FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) so that carriers have real and up-to-date accident, violation and roadside inspection data to generate a safety rating to see how they will stack up in the CSA 2010 Measurement System. The company says the online service will act as an early warning system that enables carriers to conduct internal audits and implement corrective actions to resolve any potential violations.
“Our goal is to help our subscribers go beyond just knowing what their scores are,” says James J. Keller, president and chief operating officer. “CSA Management Suite will help them evaluate where they are, identify the steps they can take to improve, and implement sustainable and successful safety compliance programs to decrease their likelihood of an FMCSA intervention. CSA Management Suite will help subscribers take control of their compliance program.”
The CSA Management Suite will include tracking tools for accidents and roadside inspections; a self-audit tool that determines a carrier’s safety fitness rating and recommends corrective actions; a comprehensive dashboard to keep carriers informed of where they stand with each CSA 2010 BASIC in terms of drivers, units, crashes and violations; 30 prewritten company policy templates; reporting and analysis tools to provide early warning reports; and unlimited access to J.J. Keller’s experts via the Personal Assistant tool.
J.J. Keller’s CSA Management Suite can be ordered by calling 888-550-2775. The online service will be sold as an annual subscription, with a single seat priced at $495. Orders before June 1 receive $50 off of the subscription price and two free months of extra service.
