New Entrant Safety Audit Preparation

A New Entrant Safety Audit is conducted on all new carriers which are listed as Interstate Carriers. This audit is an educational experience and will determine if the company official(s) have a basic understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. When this federal program started it was virtually impossible to fail the audit but as time has progressed there have been some items built into the program that are now game changers. The difference between a safety audit and a compliance review is the investigator will not look at as many records as they do in a compliance review and there are no civil penalties involved in a safety audit. The safety audit is strictly pass or fail. However during the safety audit if the investigator finds a pattern of certain violations they may make a recommendation that compliance review is conducted.

At the Kentucky Trucking Association our staff that will assist in an educational contact to review the safety regulations as well as Kentucky state laws that are specific to your operation and will review the components of the required files that are required by the safety regulations and or Kentucky state law.
