The National Transportation Safety Board is one of the agencies that initiates a post-accident investigation following a fatal accident and makes recommendations to the industry as well as the government on what steps can be taken to avoid similar accidents in the future. What lessons can we learn from recent fatal motorcoach and school bus crashes? Find out at the next presentation by the NTSB.

Session: CVSA Update
Speaker: John Amestoy, Department of Public Safety/Nevada Highway Patrol and Jim Fraley, Department of Public Safety/Nevada Highway Patrol
Each year, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) reviews, modifies and publishes new North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria. The North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria (OOSC) is the pass-fail criteria for safety inspections. The purpose of the criteria is to identify critical safety violations. Those violations can render the driver, vehicle and/or motor carrier out of service until the condition(s) or violation(s) are corrected or repaired. Find out about the latest changes to the criteria, and what to look out for before your next inspection.
|11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.||
Session: Safety Director 101 - Understanding the Safety Management Cycle
Speaker: Mike McDonal, Saucon Technologies
The Safety Management Cycle (SMC) is a tool is designed to help motor carriers establish and improve appropriate safety management controls, thereby reducing or eliminating violations. A motor carrier can use the SMC at any time; however, it can be particularly helpful to a motor carrier after it has reviewed its violations and crash history on the FMCSA Safety Measurement System (SMS). Applying the SMC is a step-by-step process that looks at “why” the safety and compliance issues are occurring rather than just identifying the violation (the “what”). The tool provides a framework for brainstorming remedies, choosing solutions, and designing and implementing plans to improve the motor carriers’ safety operations. The SMC consists of six Safety Management Processes (SMPs) that reflect the six areas of a motor carrier’s operations. This session will review those principles.
