Penske Ready for CSA

Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics are ready for the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) program a new way to measure and address commercial motor vehicle safety. The CSA initiative aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of FMCSA’s enforcement and compliance program to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities and injuries by:

  • Identifying unsafe carrier and driver behaviors that lead to crashes
  • Using all roadside inspections results and crash reports to identify safety deficiencies
  • Enabling more carriers to be contacted earlier and more frequently
  • Improving efficiency of investigations by focusing on unsafe behaviors, identifying root causes, and defining and requiring corrective actions
  • Employing a variety of interventions tailored to problems
  • Requiring sustained accountability of carriers

CSA replaces SafeStat, the FMCSA’s former safety operational program that limits its analysis of data to violations that result in out-of-service orders. But with CSA, all safety violations are included in the metrics. The stringent safety program comprises three new core components: a Safety Measurement System (SMS), an intervention process and tools that address violations and their causes, and an evaluation of safety performance.
