If you are in business long enough, sooner or later, the D.O.T. is going to come knocking. Even if you have your act together, it still can be an intimidating experience. Let Transafe, Inc. take the fear out of it. We know their procedures inside and out. Transafe is available to sit through DOT audits with you. Transafe’s presence helps present your company in the best light possible, and increases the likelihood of you passing the review with a satisfactory rating and no fines.
If the DOT has already paid a visit and issued a “Less than Satisfactory” rating, Transafe, Inc. can prepare a Safety Management Plan (SMP) for submission to the DOT. The SMP will outline and document the solutions put in place to ensure compliance with the regulations as per 49 CFR, 385.17.
Transafe, Inc. will contact the FMCSA to discuss the DOT compliance review or intervention that resulted in your company receiving a conditional or unsatisfactory rating and develop a plan that will be acceptable to the FMCSA. Transafe, Inc. will assist in collecting evidence showing that corrections have been made to the compliance process, document the evidence and develop a Safety Management Plan to present to the FMCSA.
Often a Transafe, Inc. prepared SMP is accepted and the carrier’s rating is upgraded without further intervention by the FMCSA.
