LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced the results of LexisNexis 2011 Commercial Driver Safety Report, which is designed to help commercial transportation fleet owners and managers address initiatives such as the Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) initiative by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities by improving large truck and bus safety. The report highlights the areas where existing driver safety and screening programs may need focus and provides best practices to ensure compliance.

According to the study, commercial driver applications with incomplete or inaccurate information increased 20 percent in 2011, reaching 31.42 percent, up from 11.78 percent in 2010. By analyzing these commercial driver safety discrepancies, organizations will be able to review their own processes to enhance compliance by intervening immediately and providing data to alert customers of safe hires.

The report revealed numerous instances of incomplete or inaccurate information used by organizations to screen and qualify drivers, highlighting significant and troubling gaps in compliance and safety programs.

In addition, the report also revealed that commercial drivers’ motor vehicle reports (MVRs) with adverse findings, which can indicate one or more violations, such as a revoked license, are consistently increasing year after year, from 48.2 percent in 2008 to 50.33 percent in 2011.

In addition to increasing issues with applications and MVRs, the study also reveals the following drug test trending results:

• Cocaine usage increased by seven percentage points;
• Amphetamine usage increased by two percentage points;
• Opiate usage demonstrated a slight increase; and
• Phencyclidine usage showed a slight decrease.

“Our findings continue to show the challenges transportation organizations, and those employing commercial drivers, face when monitoring their drivers and trying to meet compliance standards,” said Hayley Hitchcock, director, vertical strategy, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “Due to the inherent hazards associated with driving, fleet owners and managers need to conduct adequate due diligence before placing any employee in a position that requires driving. Failure to do so could expose the company to substantial fines, damage to their reputation and brand, and potential litigation.”

Driver Qualification File statistics included real-time data capture in May 2010 and July 2011. Some customers were in implementation and some were in maintenance mode. The report focuses on trucking customers; however, the study includes clients that may fall outside traditional definitions of the transportation industry, but employ commercial drivers and are required to comply with industry regulations.

LexisNexis recently partnered with HR.com on Nov. 17 to discuss the research results.
