FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations


SUMMARY: FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to include rear impact guards on the list of items that must be examined as part of the required annual inspection for each commercial motor vehicle (CMV). In addition, FMCSA amends the labeling requirements for rear impact guards, and excludes road construction controlled (RCC) horizontal discharge trailers from the rear impact guard requirements, consistent with changes made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to the corresponding Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). This final rule responds to rulemaking petitions, as well as a recommendation from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).


DATES: This final rule is effective December 9, 2021.  Read More...

‘Tis The Season For Holiday Kitchen Safety Tips
It’s the most wonderful time of the year — and also the most delicious. During the holidays, we serve up
food that usually graces our tables only once a year, from pumpkin pie to eggnog to turkey with all the
trimmings. Unfortunately, that extra time spent preparing your favorites in the kitchen can also create
safety risks.

So, before you or your employees whip up a favorite recipe, share this refresher on the most common
kitchen mishaps and how to prevent them.
