What Is A New Entrant Safety Audit?
The first thing an auditor wants to see is that you have a system in place to keep you in compliance with the DOT regulations. Our simple systems helps you gather all the information you need to successfully pass your audit.
The DOT New Entrant Safety Audit is the audit every new motor carrier will receive sometime between the first 3 and 12 months of operation. The DOT or one of their representatives will meet with you to review your company safety files and records. When you are notified of the audit, don’t ignore it, it won’t go away. Call us as soon as possible so we can get the process rolling to make sure you are adequately prepared.
Our DOT AuditAssistance Package includes nine folders with instructions printed on them detailing what each folder must contain. You will also be able to download 13 other files and forms, including an employment application, that help you capture all information required in a DOT Safety Audit. Additionally, we will make available a sixty-seven page guide which contains all of the information you need to prepare for the audit. If you follow the guide and our folder system, you will have no trouble passing the audit.
