CSA 2010 Driver Fitness

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration FMCSA’s new Carrier Safety Analysis 2010 has seven behavioral Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories or BASIC’s.

One important BASIC is Driver Fitness, which actually has little to do with the health or well being of a driver. Instead, it focuses on what we know as Driver Qualifications DQ. This includes all of the documents necessary to hire a driver and perform back ground checks. Including annual updates to make sure a driver’s commercial license, medical card and training are all current.

The CSA 2010  BASIC Driver Fitness relates to a carrier’s behavior expected under Part 391 of the FMCSA regulations called Qualification of Drivers. For an outline of what is required in a DQ file click here.
