Trucking Companies Hiring Safety Specialists

The new U.S. plan involving the Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 (CSA 2010) is creating a push from carriers to hire Safety Directors to ensure that all safety standards are being met by their company.  During truck driver training at our trucking school, you will learn all about pre-trip inspections and log books.  These are a focus of the new safety standards along with making sure that additional trucking training is being implemented among existing drivers.

The CSA 2010 program will officially begin on November 30th, 2010 and the worst performing carriers, as judged by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, will receive warning letters and possibly even face shut downs.  As you can imagine, this is a big reason behind the push for trucking companies to add the new personnel to monitor these safety standards. 

In the new CSA 2010 program, carriers will have more tools to monitor their safety performance on a detailed level.  Their safety scores will also change on a monthly basis, so it's very important that they pay very close attention to how they are performing.  This ties back to the importance of truck driver training at trucking schools.  It is more important than ever to these trucking companies to make sure their drivers are properly trained and ready to meet these safety standards while out on the road.
