I-95 Corridor Coalition Field Operational Test 10: Coordinated Safety Management Volume 1: Best Practices in Motor Carrier Safety Management. University-Based Research, Education, and Technology Transfer Program

Coordinated Safety Management is an I-95 Corridor Coalition-sponsored project which was designed to identify the factors that contribute to exemplary motor carrier safety performance and develop outreach materials and tools to help carriers operate more safely. One of the goals of the I-95 Corridor Coalition Field Operational Test No. 10 (FOT 10)-Coordinated Safety Management-is to develop recommendations for educational and outreach programs and materials to improve motor carrier safety and compliance with regulations. Maximizing the value of these efforts requires an understanding of what the common safety deficiencies are and what safe carriers do to avoid these deficiencies. To this end, the study team analyzed the results of roadside safety inspections for motor carriers based in the I-95 Corridor Coalition states; performed an extensive review of motor carrier safety educational materials and programs; and, conducted a survey of nearly 600 commercial motor carriers who are, arguably, among the safest operators. This report provides an overview of: Motor carrier safety/compliance deficiencies; The safety management practices of safer fleets; The topic and delivery media the safer carriers feel would be of most value to their safety programs; and, Motor carrier views on enforcement and regulations.
