Throughout the industry, DOT Interventions are happening more and more frequently. S.A. Safety Services will help you be prepared for these Interventions by performing Mock DOT Audits, completing SMS/Safer evaluations, and providing assistance with DATA Q challenges in order to keep your SMS scores in check. All files will be reviewed during a Mock Audit, including Driver Qualification Files and Vehicle Maintenance Files. Additionally, we will review policies and procedures, Drug and Alcohol Testing requirements, Accident Registers, and other relevant information.
Besides assisting your company with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, S.A. Safety Services also provides assistance with Safety Meetings, a critical part of any safety program. We can assist you and your safety manager with the meeting process, creating meetings that will not only be educational for your drivers but will also be events they will look forward to attending in the future.
We offer additional safety services as well. Do you currently have mechanics that perform in-house annual inspections on your equipment or equipment leased to your company? If so, we offer a 2-hour Annual Inspection Familiarization Course for mechanics which is designed to ensure consistency across the board. This course covers all aspects of the regulations as well as liability involved with completing the inspections. All participants receive a handbook and certificate upon completion of the class.

Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched a new data collection initiative to create a database of motor carrier crash costs by crash type and severity. This data collection will populate ATRI research designed to enable carriers to make better informed Onboard Safety System (OSS) deployment decisions.
This request for data is targeted toward motor carriers. ATRI is also working with its insurance industry partners to complete the crash cost database.
Participating motor carriers will be asked to provide information on common crash costs such as:
- Property Damage
- Attorney and Court Costs
- Towing and Recovery Costs
This research was identified as a top priority by ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee and will update a number of Onboard Safety System cost-benefit analyses that ATRI has published over the past decade.
Motor carriers interested in supporting this research initiative can access the data request form on ATRI’s website here. All submitted data will be treated as confidential information and ATRI will provide a non-disclosure agreement if requested. The research will aggregate the data and no identifiable characteristics will be reported.
