J. J. Keller Offers New DQ Platinum™ Service

Proactive CSA and driver qualification management reduces risk of intervention and litigation

J. J. Keller North Park Building

Neenah, WI — With continued focus on the FMCSA’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) initiative, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.® has launched a comprehensive outsource service for identifying and correcting driver-based deficiencies. The new DQ Platinum™ service demonstrates a company’s commitment to proactive safety management by incorporating drivers’ CSA performance into the ongoing qualification process.

DQ Platinum uses the daily monitoring of drivers’ DOT roadside inspections, along with the management of driver qualification documentation, to identify driver compliance deficiencies before they become liabilities. The service flags critical compliance gaps that are often overlooked or unknown, such as unidentified or improperly qualified drivers. In addition, the service detects inaccurate or questionable roadside inspection data and takes the steps necessary to get it removed from the carrier’s DOT number.

The DQ Platinum service includes daily monitoring and notification of inspected drivers, monthly CSA reports, receipt and retention of roadside inspection reports, DataQ administration and tracking, and CSA intervention support. The service, while closely tied to driver qualification and fitness, provides companies with exposure and reporting across all of the CSA Behavioral Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs) – allowing them to make meaningful improvements in all areas of their safety programs.

Scot Rambo, Director of Compliance Services at J. J. Keller, said, “DQ Platinum is the perfect solution for companies that are working to minimize their DOT exposure. We’re helping companies protect themselves from intervention and litigation by being extremely proactive with the management of their driver qualification and CSA data."

To further aid companies in their compliance efforts, J. J. Keller is presenting a free webcast entitled, “Driver Qualification and Roadside Inspections: Understanding the CSA Connection” on Tuesday, February 28th from 1:00-2:00 PM CST. The webcast covers such timely topics as DOT standards for driver qualification, common roadside inspection violations, and how inspections impact your BASIC scores.

You can register for the webcast and get more information on J. J. Keller's new DQ Platinum™ service by visiting Speak with a J. J. Keller representative by calling 1-888-473-4638.
