It seems like a fairly straightforward issue. Interstate transportation involves a vehicle crossing borders and operating in two or more jurisdictions; if a truck never leaves a state, it must be performing intrastate motor carriage. Surprisingly, this is not always true. The FMCSA provides a definition of interstate transportation and it encompasses more than just if a truck or driver ever leave a state - the intent at the time of shipment is key. During this webcast, you'll learn: •The FMCSA’s definition of interstate transportation; •The factors that can either blur or clarify the lines between intrastate and interstate travel; •What compliance rules apply; and •The impact on fleet legalization.

If you’ve got FMLA questions, this webcast is for you! It will start out with the basics of the provisions, but most of the time will be devoted to answering attendee questions.

If OSHA came to your door, what’s one of the first things the inspector will look for? The answer is your written safety and health plans. Whether it’s your Hazard Communication Program, Emergency Action Plan, or Lockout/Tagout Procedures, these documents help the inspector quickly gauge how well you’re protecting your workers from safety and health hazards. What’s more, if any required plans are missing or deficient, OSHA can and will cite you. Well-written plans streamline your safety efforts and provide a foundation for keeping worker safety and health a high priority. The trouble is it can be daunting trying to develop and update these plans, let alone figure out which ones are actually required. In fact, OSHA requires over 50 written plans for general industry and construction! Are you sure you have all the ones you need? Don’t miss this webcast on written plans, which will: • Discuss the written plan regulations, • Explore ways to make your plans more effective, and • Answer some frequently asked questions regarding written plans.

Carrier registration goes well beyond registering with the FMCSA and obtaining a USDOT number. Some for-hire carriers are also required to have authority. States can also require carriers - even private carriers - to obtain authority to engage in intrastate transportation. Getting all the right boxes checked can be overwhelming. During this webcast we'll discuss the different types of authority, who needs authority to operate, what's required to obtain authority, what else is required when a carrier is for-hire, and the consequences of not having the proper authorities in place. In addition, we'll take a look at some other registration programs tied to authority, namely Unified Carrier Registration (UCR), the Unified Registration System (URS), and hazardous material registrations. Join us for this informative and engaging webcast. Together, we’ll make sure that you stay on the straight and narrow.

Given the sheer volume of records that motor carriers are expected to maintain to ensure their drivers are fully qualified, it’s no wonder that mistakes can happen. When they do, it can lead to claims by a lawyer or an auditor that an unqualified driver was behind the wheel of a regulated vehicle, which can have serious consequences for the driver and company. Your driver qualification (DQ) files and the Safety Management Controls you have in place to ensure your drivers are fully qualified at all times will be closely scrutinized during a DOT audit. Violations can result in fines, a lowered safety rating, and higher scores in the Driver Fitness BASIC. This webcast will help you prepare for, and even avoid, a DOT audit of your driver qualification records and practices.
