With the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration hours-of-service update recently taking effect, J. J. Keller is now offering a free step-by-step guide to ensure that your fleet is in compliance with the new and previous HoS regulations, as well as a new checklist.
“When changes occur, it’s common for drivers to log hours incorrectly, which is why carriers need to manually audit logs for violations automated systems can’t find,” said Tom Bray, J. J. Keller’s senior industry business advisor.
The J. J. Keller DIY Log Auditing: Step-by-Step Procedures for Reducing Your Risk whitepaper provides specific audits for form and manner, falsification, and hours-of-service checks for drivers who follow standard rules, as well as short-haul exceptions. The Log Auditing Checklist provides log auditors a concise checklist for each record type: Elog, paper log, and time record. Both resources are now available and can be downloaded for free.
“No matter what type of vehicles you operate and what types of logs you use, reducing the risk of fatigued driving is an important compliance responsibility," said Tom Reader, director of ELD marketing at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Our newest resources provide fleets with expert guidance on how to audit paper logs, Elogs, and exempt time records.”
