December: Renamed CSA goes nationwide

| December 14, 2010

The new federal safety program you’ve been hearing about all year expanded to all 50 states this week. Are you ready for it?

To get your questions answered about the Compliance Safety Accountability program (formerly known as Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010), review our CSA Drivers Handbook.

Want to grasp the whole process in a glance? Check our diagram to see how it works.

You can keep up with the latest changes by visiting the official CSA 2010 site, maintained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. 

Finally, to review this week’s news about the program, read about the FMCSA data being made live to the public and about how most carriers are not ranked in the data.

    I understand that there will be new regulations requiring CPAP machines for drivers with sleep apnea. I have an herbal remedy that I use so I don’t need CPAP. How can I get the word out to the trucking industry that there is a comfortable alternative. It’s Called Sleep Apnea Relief.
    Thanks

    There’s a good chance regs will tighten on sleep apnea, but it’s not clear exactly how.
    You would need to explore any methods you can to market your new product.

    Once a driver is even suspected of having sleep apnea he has to undergo testing . He will not be certified until an effective treatment is found and he has been retested . Subsequent testing will be required .
    I doubt an herbal remedy would be accepted as treatment .

    In this throw-away society, even truck drivers will be used up as quickly as possible, then tossed out of the profession to make room for all those laid-off Obama-motors employees and other rookies drivers coming out of every two bit truck school. This new point system is exactly how they will “make room” for all the unemployed dishwashers to get into an “exciting career” in trucking.
