Final Rules:
This final rule revises the list of offenses permanently disqualifying individuals from operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for which a commercial drivers' license or a commercial learner's permit is required. This final rule reflects a change made by Congress in the "No Human Trafficking on Our Roads Act'' (the Act) which prohibits an individual from operating a CMV for life if that individual uses a CMV in committing a felony involving a severe form of human trafficking, adding to the list of other disqualifying offenses identified in statute.
Toolbox Talks:
This talk discusses safe practices for backing up a commercial motor vehicle to avoid collisions and accidents.

This talk addresses common eye hazards and the proper use of eye protection for construction workers.
This talk addresses common hand hazards and the proper use of hand protection for construction workers.

Final Rules:
This rule is a technical amendment announcing Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the information collection requirements in the Cranes and Derricks in Construction: Operator Qualification final rule.
Proposed Rules:
FMCSA proposes to amend its December 8, 2016, final rule, "Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators'' (ELDT final rule), by extending the compliance date for two provisions from the rule. The date for training providers to upload entry-level driver training (ELDT) certification information into the Training Provider Registry (TPR) and for State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) to receive driver-specific ELDT information would be extended from February 7, 2020, to February 7, 2022.
Questions & Answers:
I am currently writing a Hazardous Communication plan for our company. One of the key requirements for the plan is that we catalog all of our "Hazardous Chemicals." What is the best way to determine if a chemical is classified as hazardous? The chemicals I will be auditing are basic cleaning supplies for our janitorial staff. Is there an indicator on the Safety Data Sheet that will clarify if it is hazardous or not?
Notices:
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extends the comment period for its May 15, 2019 notice concerning a possible pilot program to allow non-military drivers aged 18, 19, and 20 to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce.
White Papers:
Could any of your employees be considering suicide? Could they be planning to do it at the office or on the jobsite? It’s a prospect no one wants to consider, but workplace suicides can and do happen.
Proposed Rules:
FMCSA proposes to allow States to permit a third party skills test examiner to administer the Commercial Driver's License (CDL) skills test to applicants to whom the examiner has also provided skills training. Under this proposal, States would have the option to permit this practice, which is currently prohibited under FMCSA rules.

If you ever wanted to tell an applicant the truth, and the whole truth, about why you rejected him or her for a job, maybe you will find satisfaction in living vicariously through the BBC.
