FMCSA Enhances Pre-Employment Screening Program's Driver Data
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has enhanced its Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) by adding data for co-driver safety and post-crash violations to the roadside inspection and crash records previously available. The PSP report also now shows the date drivers' safety records are updated. Launched in March 2010, PSP is an essential safety tool that allows commercial truck and bus companies to electronically obtain drivers' safety records as part of the hiring process. To access PSP, go to www.psp.fmcsa.dot.gov.
