New ACE White Paper Discusses New Regulations Impacting Fleet Safety

ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operations of the ACE Group, today announced the release of a white paper discussing critical issues within the trucking industry as companies seek to comply with a tough new federal program aimed at reducing crashes and improving safety records. The paper provides details to increase companies’ understanding of the overall impact of the regulations. Further, the paper suggests steps that companies can take to integrate the new regulations into their operations to fulfill the requirements set forth.

“The industry’s concern about fleet safety and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) program is reflected in the results of a survey of more than 4,000 trucking industry executives who identified the program as among the ten most critical issues they face,” said David Brown, Vice President and Transportation Practice Leader for ACE Risk Management. “Federal safety programs were originally launched in the 1990s. These recent changes, however, mean fleet safety has taken on a new level of urgency as executives work to understand the new regulations and how it will impact their business.”

“Fleet Safety: Understanding New Regulations,” was authored by Jack Scarborough, Senior Health, Safety and Environmental Consultant at ESIS, Inc., the risk management services division of the ACE Group. As a leader in his field, Mr. Scarborough has been instrumental in the development of the FMCSA Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) system. Mr. Scarborough leverages his 20 years’ experience in large fleet management to address emerging industry concerns in the context of fleet safety and the FMCSA safety monitoring and measuring program.

In his paper, Mr. Scarborough noted that while many of the original requirements have remained unchanged, the process set forth by the FMCSA SAFER system has been re-engineered to provide a better view into how well large commercial motor vehicle carriers and drivers are complying with safety rules. Mr. Scarborough remarked, “These evolving regulatory measures put additional pressure on commercial motor vehicle carriers to reduce safety violations.”
