J.J. Keller & Associates has introduced a safety and compliance analysis and rating system the company says "goes beyond a traditional compliance audit to thoroughly assess a fleet's CSA performance, safety management policies and procedures, and adoption of industry best practices."

The J.J. Keller Diagnostic Audit & Assessment service is being offered now as a one of the most in-depth of its kind, according to Steve Murray, the firm's director of consulting services.

During the audit and assessment, a J.J. Keller advisor will score a fleet in over 500 areas. Those scores will then be compiled into a J.J. Keller Performance Rating, which is a tool designed to measure their risk exposure and performance against other fleets, their other locations, and their future progress.

Fleets will also be given a complete report of their diagnostic audit and assessment, details of the individual scores, recommendations for making short- and long-term improvements, and the guidance of J.J. Keller's regulatory specialists.

"This service will provide fleets with the greatest insight into how they can improve compliance, manage CSA scores, control insurance premiums, adopt industry best practices, and reduce accidents and liability," Murray said. "It's the most advanced process for building a best-in-class safety and compliance program available."
