Questions & Answers:
I believe there are several tools that can be used during an assessment. I utilize an employee as one of my top tools. I use people that know the job. Sometimes observing employees can also be a tool when doing a risk assessment or analysis I think. What do you believe is the most versatile assessment tool for use in the safety profession?
An employee was given an annual audiometry test and it was determined that this person's has an STS change in hearing threshold. The employee was given an appointment to return for a retest in 7 days to confirm the recordable STS. The employee refused to retest, and after several attempts to convince him to do so, he still refused and the 30 day retest window has past. In this scenario, does the company have to record this case on the 300 log?

Where can i find a document that would provide the DOT Commercial Motor Vehicle Regulations per State? We conduct business in several states and would like to find an easier way to determine what each state's minimum DOT requirements are?
Proposed Rules:
FMCSA proposes to rescind the requirement that drivers of passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) operating in interstate commerce, submit, and motor carriers retain, driver-vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs) when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any vehicle defects or deficiencies (no-defect DVIRs). This proposed rule would remove an information collection burden without adversely impacting safety.
