VEHICLE SEA

Within the Vehicle SEA, SafeStat evaluates a carrier's vehicle-related safety performance and compliance. The Vehicle SEA Value reflects a carrier's vehicle safety posture relative to its peers. SafeStat calculates the Vehicle SEA Value based on the Vehicle Inspections Indicator (VII) and the Vehicle Review Indicator (VRI). The VII is based on vehicle roadside OOS inspection violations. The VRI is based on the vehicle-related violations of acute and critical regulations discovered during compliance reviews. The sections that follow present the specific computations for each safety measure, indicator, and the Vehicle SEA Value. Figure 5-1 presents the computational hierarchy used to calculate a Vehicle SEA Value.

Vehicle Inspections Indicator (VII)

Using vehicle roadside inspection data from inspections performed within the last 30 months, SafeStat calculates the VII for all carriers that have had a minimum of 3 vehicle inspections. SafeStat weights each inspection by its age and the number of vehicle OOS violations, and then normalizes the weighted vehicle OOS results by the number of vehicle inspections to obtain a weighted vehicle OOS rate, known as the VIM. Carriers with similar numbers of vehicle inspections are assigned to one of three groups. Within each group they are compared to one another and ranked by their VIMs. SafeStat assigns a percentile number (from 0-100) based on its rank. The percentile number becomes the carrier's VII. A carrier must have 3 or more vehicle OOS inspections to have the potential to receive a deficient VII, i.e., 75 and higher.

Vehicle Roadside Inspections Data

SafeStat uses data from roadside inspections that have been performed within the last 30 months and pertain to vehicles, i.e., inspection levels 1, 2, and 5 when calculating the VIM. SafeStat uses the following data elements from roadside inspections in its calculations of the VIM.
TOP

  • Number of Vehicle OOS Violations
  • Number of Vehicles Placed OOS
  • Number of Vehicle Inspections

Calculation of the Vehicle Inspections Measure (VIM)

SafeStat calculates the VIM by adding the time-weighted number of vehicle OOS inspections to the time-weighted number of Vehicle OOS violations and then dividing by the total time-weighted number of vehicle inspections. The basic equation for the VIM is:
TOP

Calculate VIM
SafeStat uses vehicle roadside inspection data from the last 30 months. It time-weights inspection data to give more importance to recent inspections. The use of total vehicle OOS violations in the formula has the effect of "severity weighting" the VIM. The following steps detail SafeStat's calculation of the VIM.
A. Using the results of level 1, 2, and 5 vehicle inspections, aggregate each carrier's inspections into three time periods based on the age of each inspection: 0 to 6 months, 7 to 18 months, and 19 to 30 months.

Level 1, 2, and 5 vehicle inspections
B. Aggregate the following for each time period:

Aggregate the time periods
*The limit for the maximum number of Vehicle OOS violations for any one inspection is 5.
    C. Weight the time periods giving the most weight to the most recent inspections (3 for 0 to 6 months, 2 for 7 to 18 months, and 1 for 19 to 30 months).

Weight the time periods
D. Sum the weighted data for:
  1. Number of Vehicle OOS Violations
  2. Number of Vehicles Placed OOS
  3. Number of Vehicle Inspections

Sum the weighted data
E. Calculate a vehicle OOS rate by adding the Time-Weighted Number of Vehicle OOS Violations and the Time-Weighted Number of Vehicles Placed OOS and dividing the sum by the Time-Weighted Number of Vehicle Inspections to arrive at the VIM.

Calculate the Vehicle OOS Rate

Calculation of the Vehicle Inspections Indicator (VII)

SafeStat uses the Vehicle Inspections Measure (VIM) along with the number of vehicle inspections performed within the last 30 months (without application of time weighting) to calculate the Vehicle Inspections Indicator (VII). The following steps detail SafeStat's calculation of VII.

A. Using level 1, 2, and 5 inspections for each carrier performed within the last 30 months, calculate the carrier's total number of vehicle inspections and assign the carrier to one of 3 peer groups. Withhold carriers with fewer than 3 vehicle inspections from further consideration.

calculate the carrier's total number of vehicle inspections and assign the carrier to one of 3 peer groups
B. For each group, rank carriers' VIM in ascending order. Transform the ranked measures to percentiles from the 0 percentile (representing the lowest VIM) to the 100th percentile (representing the highest VIM). Assign the percentile value to the VII. If a carrier has fewer than 3 vehicle OOS inspections then the VII will be capped at 74. Also, if carrier has no vehicle OOS inspections, then it will receive a VII of 0.

Vehicle Review Indicator (VRI)

Using the results from compliance reviews performed within the last 18 months, SafeStat calculates the VRI. SafeStat quantifies the number and severity of violations of vehicle-related acute/critical regulations (defined in Part 385 Appendix B of the FMCSR) cited at a carrier's most recent compliance review into the Vehicle Review Measure (VRM). All of the carriers' VRMs are compared to one another and are ranked on a percentile basis from 0 to 100. SafeStat assigns the percentile number to the VRI for each carrier with at least one violation of acute and critical regulations.
TOP

Calculation of the Vehicle Review Indicator (VRI)

A. SafeStat calculates the Vehicle Review Measure (VRM) for each carrier as described in Appendix B
TOP
B. The Vehicle Review Indicator (VRI) is calculated by taking VRMs for all selected carriers (including those with VRMs of 0) and ranking them in ascending order. The ranked values are transformed into percentiles from 0 (representing the lowest VRM) to 100 (representing the highest VRM). Each carrier with a non-zero VRM is assigned a VRI equal to its percentile rank. TOP

Calculation of the Vehicle SEA Value

The Vehicle SEA Value establishes the carrier's safety status concerning vehicles. SafeStat uses the Vehicle Inspections Indicator (VII) and the Vehicle Review Indicator (VRI) with their associated indicator weights to calculate the Vehicle SEA Value.

The Vehicle SEA calculation is the maximum of the VRI and VII.

The Vehicle SEA calculation is the maximum of the VRI and VII.

If only one of the two indicators (VRI or VII) exists, then that indicator is assigned to the Vehicle SEA Value. If neither of the indicators exists, then the carrier has insufficient data for SafeStat to calculate a Vehicle SEA Value.


TOP

Vehicle OOS Rate

Vehicle OOS rate uses the last 30 months of data. This is the number of vehicles placed OOS divided by the number of vehicle inspections. This rate is not time-weighted. The maximum number of violations that can be used in the calculation of OOS rate is five.
TOP

Calculating Review Measures

Review measures, DRM, VRM, SMRM, and HMRM, are calculated for DRI in the Driver SEA, the VRI in the Vehicle SEA, and the SMRI and HMRI in the Safety Management SEA, respectively. Each of these four review measures has a specified set of associated acute and critical regulations. See Table B-1 at the end of this appendix for a list of associated acute and critical regulations. A review measure is scored based on the number and severity of each violation of associated acute and critical regulations. The following steps detail SafeStat's calculation of the carrier's review measure:

A. Identify all violations of acute and critical regulations related to the given review measure, should such violations exist. If a carrier does not have any violations of acute and critical regulations related to the measure, the review measure is assigned a value of 0. B. If the carrier has one or more violations of acute and critical regulations related to the measure, obtain the following information:

 

Violations of Critical Regulations:

# of Occurrences

 

 

# of Records Checked

 

 

 

 

Violations of Acute Regulations:

# of Occurrences

C. Assign the severity weight to each violation of acute and critical regulations using the Table B-1 at the end of this appendix.

Each violation of acute and critical regulations has a corresponding severity weight that depends on the nature of the violation. The severity weight for each violation was determined by the following criteria:

Severity weight

Criterion

1

Ratable violations of critical regulations that are compliance or paperwork oriented.

1

Non-ratable violations of acute and critical regulations.

2

Ratable violations of critical regulations that are performance oriented.

3

Ratable violations of all acute regulations.

D. Calculate the weighted Violation Value for each violation, as follows:

  • For each violation of critical regulations:

Violation Value = Severity Weight x (10 + (Violation Rate x 10))

where Violation Rate = # of Occurrences / # of Records Checked

For example, if a violation of a critical regulation was cited in the CR as having had occurred 10 times out of 20 records check (violation rate of 0.5) and was considered "performance oriented" (severity weight of 2), then

Violation Value = 2 x (10 + (0.5 x 10)) = 2 x (10 + 5) = 2 x 15 = 30

  • For each violation of acute regulations:

Violation Value = Severity Weight x (10 + # of Occurrences)

where # of Occurrences is set to a maximum of 10 and the severity weight of non-ratable and ratable violations of acute regulations are 1 and 3 respectively.

For example, if a violation of an acute regulation was cited in the CR as having had occurred 5 times then

Violation Value = 3 x (10 + 5) = 3 x 15 = 45

E. Obtain the carrier's review measure for the given SEA by summing all of the violation values associated with the measure. Using the two violation value examples in Step C of 30 and 45, SafeStat will calculate the review measure as 75 (=30 + 45).
