Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s, Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) Records Include Not Preventable Crash Data

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) launched the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) in 2010. PSP records contain a snapshot of a driver’s history, including all FMCSA-reportable crashes that occurred in the last 5-years, roadside inspections and violations that happened in the last 3-years, as well as “not preventable” crash data.

Crashes that are determined “not preventable” through FMCSA’s Crash Preventability Determination Program (CPDP) are notated in PSP records. A “crash preventability determination” does not assign fault or legal liability for the crash. The absence of a “not preventable determination” does not indicate that a crash was preventable. By listing all FMCSA-reportable crashes, inspections, and violations, each PSP record serves as a complete driver history snapshot. Crashes, inspections, and violations listed in a PSP record represent a driver’s involvement only, without any determination as to responsibility.

When there is a crash on a driver’s PSP record that is one of the 16 eligible crash types, it may be submitted for a preventability review through DataQs at: https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov.To learn about eligible crash types and how to submit a Request for Data Review (RDR), visit: www.fmcsa.dot.gov/crashpreventability-determinationprogram.
