CSA 2010 -- a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) initiative affecting the movement of cranes and overdimensional loads -- will be the focus of several sessions during the SC&RA Specialized Transportation Symposium, March 3-5, at the Intercontinental Dallas in Addison, TX.
In one session, Ron Kipp will rely on his 30 years in the trucking industry, including 17 years in heavy haul, to compare the new initiative with FMCSA's Safestat program.
In addition to highlighting practical differences, benefits and potential shortcomings, he will emphasize techniques for using the new program's seven behavior analysis improvement categories and for taking a safety program beyond CSA 2010.
Last fall, Kipp became part of the Heavy Haul Risk Management Support Team at NationsBuilders Insurance Services, Inc. (NBIS), the only insurance and risk management program endorsed by SC&RA.
Before joining NBIS, he worked at some of the nation's leading trucking companies where he led and managed driver management, customer service, driver recruiting, over-dimensional permits and maintenance departments.
