  • Data Review Process

  • How BASIC scores are determined

  • Strategies to improve BASIC scores

Timeline of implementation
Timeline of Implementation

April 12 – November 30, 2010 – Motor carriers can preview their own data by seeing their roadside inspections/violations and crash events organized by Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC).

Timeline of implementation1
Timeline of Implementation

June – The Operational Model (Op-Model) Test will end.

July – The four “50/50” Op-Model Test states, Colorado, Georgia, Missouri and New Jersey, will join the five 100% Op-Model Test states in implementing the program.  

August –  Motor carriers will be able to see an assessment of their violations based on the new Carrier Safety Measurement System (CSMS) which will replace SafeStat later in 2010.

Fall 2010

SafeStat will be replaced by the CSMS. CSMS will be available to the public, including shippers and insurance companies.

FMCSA/States will prioritize enforcement using the CSMS.

FMCSA will begin to issue Warning Letters to carriers with deficient BASICs.

Roadside inspectors will use the CSMS results to identify carriers for inspection.

Winter 2010 - Safety Fitness Determination Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) is scheduled to be released.

2011 – Enforcement staff will be trained, and new interventions will be implemented State-by-State

What is the csa 2010 data review
What is the CSA 2010 Data Review?

Website that organizes existing carrier safety performance by CSA 2010’s BASICs

Inspection data (24 months)

Crash data (24 months)

Provides information and best practices for improving carrier safety

Allows carriers to identify trends in safety performance in order to begin addressing problems today

Why provide a data review
Why Provide a Data Review?

Incremental step toward SMS implementation

Understanding the 7 BASICs and violations tied to each

Proactively engages industry to improve safety and prepare for CSA 2010

Carriers are given an opportunity to review and update data


MCS-150 updates

Advance notice prior to rollout

Data review access details
Data Review Access Details

Carrier can only access their own results

Access requires carrier PIN


CSA 2010 Test Carriers will continue to have access to CSI as well as the Data Review

Public will not have access to Data Review

FMCSA and State Partners have access to every carrier’s data review

Frequently asked questions
Frequently Asked Questions Portal

Question: What does the data displayed in the Data Review mean and what should I do with it?

Response: The Data Review is designed to allow you to review:

Inspections, violations and crash data that will be used to assess your performance in SMS.  These are activities currently linked to your DOT#. 

Data for accuracy.

Behaviors demonstrated by your drivers through violations that may require attention (i.e. sort your various BASIC data by driver name to review performance by those operating for you.)

How calculated
How Calculated Portal

  • How long ago it occurred

  • Severity of inspection or crash

  • Normalize the data by inspections or power units

  • Place into Peer Group

  • Ranked in each peer group as percentiles

  • Intervention Threshold

Time weight
Time Weight Portal

  • Violation in last 6 months = multiplier of 3

  • Violation date 6 to 12 months ago = multiplier of 2

  • Violation date 12 to 24 months ago = multiplier of 1

  • Over 24 months = no impact on carrier

Severity weight
Severity Weight Portal

  • Level of crash risk from violation

    • Rated 1 to 10 (lowest to highest risk)

    • OOS weight of 2 added to each out of service item

    • Capped at 30 for a single inspection

  • Crash Indicator

    • Tow only Weight of 1

    • Injury – Fatality Weight of 2

    • Hazardous Materials release additional 1 point

Peer group
Peer Group Portal

Summary of strategies
Summary of Strategies Portal

  • Decrease the negative events

    • Decrease the numerator

  • Increase the number used to normalize the data

    • Increase the denominator

  • Change intervention Level

    • Update MC150 if no longer moving people or hazardous materials

Calculations power unit based
Calculations – Power Unit Based Portal

  • Unsafe Driving

  • Controlled Substances / Alcohol

  • Crash Indicator (Will be miles & power units)

>>> More inspections will not reduce the score

Calculations inspections based

  • Fatigued Driving

  • Driver Fitness

  • Maintenance

  • Cargo- Related (size, weight, load securement, hazardous materials)

>>> More CLEAN inspections WILL reduce the score

Decrease the negative events focus on who is driving the numbers
Decrease the negative events PortalFocus on who is driving the numbers

  • 6-8 % of the drivers are causing 80% of the violation points

  • Measure results

  • Accountability & Clear expectations

Internal controls unsafe driving addressing speeding
Internal Controls PortalUnsafe Driving – Addressing speeding

  • Are you taking this seriously?

  • Do I have a speed policy?

  • Do I have my vehicles properly set for top speed?

  • Do I have a speed alert on my GPS?

  • Do I regularly conduct a download from my ECM for high speeds?

  • Do I manage my mechanics so no one cheats the speed?

  • Do I take motorists reports seriously?

  • How do I check my drivers logs for over speed? Do I have a policy for HOS speed? Does it have teeth? Do we enforce it? Do we discharge for it?

  • Are drivers held accountable for warning tickets?

  • Do I conduct covert and overt surveillance?

“For two months, carriers have been able to view their data. . . . I can’t say it often enough, if carriers aren’t looking at their data, shame on them,” she said.

“By the end of August, they’ll see the rating system, the measurement system and, by the end of the year, the public — that’s the insurance industry, that’s the shipping industry, and everybody else will have access to all that data as well.”

Then, Ferro said, during 2011, “you’ll start to see the phased rollout of the actual intervention processes, state-by-state and carrier-by-carrier.”
