J.J. Keller rolls out driver pre-employment screening program

Updated Oct 5, 2012

J.J. Keller & Associates announced it now offers a pre-employment screening program service to provide carriers with a complete review of a driver’s history and aid in the hiring process. J. J. Keller said carrier customers will receive a PSP scorecard with an overall evaluation based on variables tied to driver performance.

“Today, carriers have to sift through complex PSP reports from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration,” said Scot Rambo, J.J. Keller’s director of compliance services. “We interpret these driver history reports to provide a clear assessment, as well as explain the meaning behind the data presented in the PSP.”

J.J. Keller said the Pre-Employment Screening Program Analysis uses weighted scoring based on violation severity and elapsed time, as well as crash history. Scores are summarized by Compliance Safety Accountability BASIC, providing carriers with an overall assessment. Information is based on three years of roadside inspection data and five years of crash data.

J.J. Keller said that in addition to aiding in hiring decisions, the assessments help manage fleet CSA scores, can be used in driver training and improve overall hiring processes. The PSP Analysis Service is a complement to J.J. Keller’s Driver Qualification Service, which tracks all FMCSA-required documentation for CMV drivers.
