SambaSafety Transportation announced the development of a new CSA Scorecard.
The company began testing the Item Response Theory (IRT) methodology for the CSA Fast Act Score Model two years before its planned release by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The new SambaSafety CSA Scorecard powered by Vigillo has been in development for the past year and will soon be available to customers.
“When CSA was first being tested in 2008, Vigillo was the industry leader in analyzing what fueled CSA Scores and made the first CSA Scorecards available to the entire industry, nearly two years before the FMCSA program went live in December 2010,” said Steve Bryan, executive vice president and general manager of SambaSafety. “Today, SambaSafety is leveraging Vigillo’s expertise to help customers understand the new CSA scoring model long before it will be released.
“We believe that FMCSA’s approach utilizing the IRT methodology is moving in the right direction,” said Bryan. “Our analysis shows that the IRT model is an effective means of identifying a poor safety culture at motor carriers and will represent a significant improvement in the overall effectiveness of the CSA program.”
Following its acquisition in 2017, Vigillo has been applying its technology for analyzing commercial driver and motor carrier safety performance at SambaSafety. Bryan is the founder and former president of Vigillo and an expert on CSA. The combined capabilities of Vigillo’s CSA diagnostic and management tools and SambaSafety’s Driver Risk Management services provide customers the ability to manage and track driver performance, mitigate high-risk driver behavior and address driver safety throughout the entire employment lifecycle.
