Safety Rating http://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/sms

Be sure to monitor your company’s safety score via the SMS (Safety Measurement System).

SMS displays all roadside inspection and compliance investigation results for the past 24 months. Your company’s performance is broken down into seven Behavior Analysis & Safety Improvement categories (BASICs) and is updated once each month.

 

Failure to monitor your score could adversely impact your business’ profits! It is strongly recommended that you register for an account within the FMCSA Portal which will provide you with real-time access to your company information, including recent roadside inspections and traffic crashes as recent as today. Unlike the public-access SMS, you will be able to see who was behind the wheel. Additionally, you will be able to make updates to your USDOT registration (form MCS-150) as required biannually (once every 2 years) or whenever changes occur (new address, phone number, number of drivers or vehicles).
