The mechanics of a DOT audit (and practical tips for surviving one)

In a recent webinar, Trucksafe's Brandon Wiseman and Jerad Childress discussed the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA's) auditing methodology, including how the agency prioritizes motor carriers for investigation, what types of audits it conducts, what records it requests, what types of violations it looks for, and the consequences of a "bad" audit. Check out the replay below.

As discussed in the webinar and in our prior article, it's important for fleets to proactively examine their safety management policies and procedures to ensure they result in compliance with applicable regulations. The consequences of non-compliance can be severe, including a fleet-wide shutdown, civil penalties, lost business, and increased insurance premiums.

To assist carriers in this area, we've compiled a Mock DOT Audit white paper, which you can download below. Also, we regularly conduct these types of audits for our motor carrier clients. Please reach out with any questions.
