CSA and Driver Safety

CSA (Compliance, Safety and Accountability) is FMCSA’s safety compliance and enforcement program.

No new rules, just new ways of monitoring and reporting unsafe behaviors.

Why the new system?

  • Way to identify drivers with unsafe driving habits.
  • Way to identify companies with inadequate safety policies
  • Allows FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) to intervene prior to accidents occurring.

What does CSA mean to the driver?

  • Each commercial vehicle license holder will be assigned a “Safety Record:” PSP (Pre-employment Screening Profile) and CSA Report (Driver BASIC Summary)
  • Your safety record will follow you regardless of the company you work for or contract with.
  • Your activity on the highway, i.e. roadside inspection violations, accidents, tickets, even warning tickets, will have a negative impact on your personal safety record.
  • You could limit yourself in regards to the companies you can work for. Companies are hiring based on the new PSP reports.


Behavioral Analysis & Safety Improvement Categories are:

  • Driver Fitness
  • Unsafe Driving
  • Fatigued Driving
  • Controlled Substances and Alcohol
  • Vehicle Maintenance
  • Improper Loading/Cargo Securement
  • Crash/Incident Experience

How does the FMCSA plan to intervene?
