Rair, a provider of safety and compliance services to commercial motor carriers, has introduced two enhancements to its CSA solution. Using Microsoft Silverlight technology, Rair has created a new type of reporting environment that it says offers greater control to the user and a more fluid reporting environment. The company has also introduced a new report that links CSA data to audited Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs).
Specific features include the ability to drag and drop columns, sort within columns, and filter data within columns (for example, displaying only drivers with 10 or more violations). Users can filter the same data set up to three times.
RAIR’s new DVIR report compares data from DVIRs with CSA Vehicle Maintenance BASIC data, to help carriers identify and counsel drivers who routinely perform inadequate vehicle inspections. The report indicates whether the cause of a vehicle-related CSA violation was noted on the DVIR for the day of the inspection or the day prior to the inspection.
The report was designed to help reduce the number of inspections, violations, points, and costly roadside repairs, and to help increase the number of on-time deliveries. “According to our most recent analysis of CSA violations data, the Vehicle Maintenance BASIC accounts for 65 percent of all CSA violations,” said Gregory J. Lofy, Rair’s President and CEO. “Fortunately, this is one of the BASICs that carriers can improve by counseling drivers to perform more careful vehicle inspections.”
