             A tribute to Uncle Morty

            The man who inspired my career
            in the safety biz .....

            Uncle Morty was a FEMA guy,
            keeping us safe after natural
            and man-made disasters.

            n   Change that’s already here – The new

            n   Change coming up – The new CLP,

                Medical Certification -

                a couple key points


            n   The medical certification requirements
                for school bus drivers and other CDL
                holders have NOT changed

            n   What has changed is that, now, drivers
                required to be medically certified must
                prove it to get and keep their CDLs


1/25/2014
                Medical Certification -

                new procedures


            n   Beginning last October 1st, drivers
                coming in to get or renew a CDL must:

                 – Declare under oath whether they are
                   required to be medically certified

                 – If required to be certified, show a current
                   valid medical card

1/25/2014
                Medical Certification -

                new procedures

            n   The driver’s declaration can be made
                in one of 4 categories:
                 –   A. Non-excepted Interstate Commerce
                 –   B. Excepted Interstate Commerce
                 –   C. Non-excepted Intrastate Commerce
                 –   D. Excepted Intrastate Commerce


            n   School bus drivers typically operate in
                category C, but MAY choose to self-
                certify in Category A
1/25/2014
                Medical Certification -

                new procedures


            n   After the declaration, drivers present
                their medical cards
                 – For school bus drivers this typically means
                   the ESE 479 med card. However, a
                   federal “DOT” card is acceptable to us.

                 – All of the information from the card will be
                   entered into the driver’s record. It must be
                   legible.
1/25/2014
                Medical Certification -

                new procedures

            n   Beginning July, 2012, drivers who
                have not been into an office will be
                notified by mail to complete the
                procedures by other means
                 – Notices will be going out in monthly
                   batches, based on the drivers’ birthdays
                 – Drivers may go into an office to complete
                   the procedure before they are notified
                   ...but we would prefer not
                 – All CDL holder’s medical information must
                   be on record by January 30, 2014

                Medical Certification -

                the really BIG change

            n   Drivers have never before had to verify
                their continued medical certification
                between CDL renewals
            n   Now they do, and will be disqualified
                from commercial motor vehicle
                operation if their certifications are
                allowed to lapse
                 – The only way to keep a CDL without being
                   medically certified is to be in an exempt
                   category
1/25/2014

                who have not kept their medical
                certification information up to date

            n   About 4,000 drivers to start with will be
                notified to update their information
