How does vehicle maintenance affect your CSA score?

New Hampshire Motor Transport Association, in cooperation with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the New Hampshire State Police, Commercial Vehicle Unit, will be presenting this informational seminar focusing on vehicle maintenance.

During this workshop, the following areas will be covered to assist you in improving your company’s Vehicle Maintenance program:

 How roadside data is used to measure your company’s highway safety performance and steps you can take to increase compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations;

 The effective programs, policies and measurable procedures your company can implement to avoid vehicle maintenance violations;

 Review your safety data and how the violations your drivers receive impact your CSA scores.

 Members of several companies will also share aspects of their maintenance programs that have been successful.

Here is your chance to get clarification from the enforcers and be informed about what FMCSA and DMV expect, and how you can protect your company.

This also provides you an opportunity to interact with your peers, ask question, and find out what has worked for them.

NHMTA Sponsors Second Load Securement Program

On May 9, NHMTA conducted the second of two load securement safety training programs for member companies at the White Mountain Community College in Littleton. The program focused on load securement and FMCSA regulatory updates.

Sixteen persons from seven member companies attended the program led by Trooper First-Class Kenneth Phoenix of New Hampshire State Police, Troop G, Commercial Vehicle Unit and Division Administrator Steve Piwowarski of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The program consisted of a classroom session and an outdoor exercise where attendees had to identify “problems” of load securement. Then, with TFC. Phoenix officiating, the group identified and shortly thereafter reviewed the problem areas on the demonstration vehicle that had been set up before the class.

World Trading Company (WTC), a division of Sabbow products, graciously supplied the demonstration vehicle, a flatbed with three different loads, for use during the outdoor portion of the exercise.

Following the outdoor exercise, Steve Piwowarski gave a presentation about the latest regulatory changes at FMCSA and the latest update on electric logging devices (ELDs). As use of ELDs becomes effective this coming December, NHMTA will be sponsoring additional programs focusing on the use and regulation of these devices.

NHMTA wants to thank Ray Billings and Ray Popsie of Phoenix Concrete, and Tim Fisher and Scott Jewell of WTC for their cooperation and assistance in providing the demonstration vehicle and the setup of “problems” used during these two programs. We also wish to thank Melanie Robbins and White Mountain Community College, TFC. Kip Phoenix of NHSP Troop G, and Steve Piwoarski of FMCSA, for their cooperation and assistance in conducting these two valuable programs.

Reasonable Suspicion Training for HR, Managers, and Supervisors

March 8, 2017
(9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.)
We’re in the midst of a substance abuse crisis. Have all of your managers & supervisors been trained to recognize SUBSTANCE ABUSE?
Reasonable suspicion training should be aimed at all supervisors, managers, and human resource personnel. In today’s environment, if you hire anybody, knowing what to look for in terms of a substance abuser is critical for the safety of your company and employees. While DOT regulations specifically require “all persons designated to supervise drivers” to receive 60 minutes of mandatory training on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes on controlled substances abuse (49CFR §382.603), this DOT-required training will also be useful by reviewing a policy for other positions within your company not covered by FMCSA regulations and will give employers and supervisors the information they need to determine if an applicant is a substance abuser before hiring.
