This information repository supports all transportation modes, data analysts, field inspectors, and team leaders. HIP includes several hazardous materials data points (e.g., Incidents from the 5800 report, PHMSA registrations, approvals, cargo tank registrations, EPA toxic release inventory, inspection/ reviews, NRC incidents, one time movements, penalties, PHMSA complains, RAM certifications, USCG releases, and violations). HIP data is organized on customized Dashboards to provide data pertinent to the mode, agency, office or group utilizing the system. The Dashboards are customized for each user or user group. HIP is not searchable by the general public due to privacy concerns. Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) FMCSA’s SAFER System provides company safety data and related services to the industry and public. SAFER’s Company Snapshot is an electronic record of a carrier’s identification, size commodity information, and safety records, including the safety rating (if any), a roadside out-of-service inspection summary, and crash information.
