Neenah, WI -  “Preparing for a DOT audit is a best practice, but preparing to avoid one is a great practice.”

That’s the message from Tom Reader, director of marketing at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Carriers need an easy-to-use tool that helps them assess and improve the essential components identified by the FMCSA as necessary to run a safe and compliant fleet. Our editors have put these components into a workbook format that quickly and easily helps fleets identify gaps and risks within each area of their organization so they can reduce the chance of an audit and proactively improve their compliance.”

J. J. Keller’s free 44-page DOT Audit Workbook: Assess Your Risk in the 7 CSA BASICs is organized by the seven BASICs in the CSA program. Each BASIC section includes an overview, examples of related violations and their severity ratings, and questions based on the six steps in the FMCSA’s Safety Management Cycle: policies and procedures, roles and responsibilities, qualification and hiring, training and communication, monitoring and tracking, and meaningful action.

“When fleets are proactive about safety and compliance, they gain greater control over whether a DOT audit is in their future or not, particularly since the majority of audits aren’t random,” added Reader.
