Encompass™ Now Supports Oil Field Rules Along with Others
Neenah, WI – J. J. Keller’s Encompass™, the industry’s leading DOT compliance management tool, will now support the U.S. Oil Field logging exception through the use of Keller’s Android-based EOBR system.
“The U.S. Oil Field exception is critical to effectively manage hours-of-service requirements in the oil and gas field industry,” said Rustin Keller, Vice President of Business Services for J. J. Keller. “Fleets can take advantage of the 24 hour off-duty reset of the 8-day period, and the ‘fifth line’ for time spent waiting at a well site. Understanding this compliance is very difficult and our systems help eliminate both log audit headaches and DOT non-compliance fines.”
This feature is the latest addition to the Encompass system’s comprehensive database of 18 industry- and state-specific rule sets. The Department of Transportation reports that hours-of-service issues are the most commonly cited violations at roadside inspections, and the extensive support provided by Encompass and its E-Logs solution gives transportation professionals the tools they need to maintain compliance and avoid costly mistakes.
The rule sets currently supported in the Encompass EOBR/E-Log Solution include:
- US Federal (60 and 70)
- US Oil Field
- CD Federal (Cycles 1 and 2)
Encompass also supports many additional Federal- and state-specific hours-of-service rules for the manual entry of driver logs.
Bob Larsen, Director of Business Services - Marketing for J. J. Keller, said, “J. J. Keller’s Encompass supports these unique state, federal and industry-specific rule sets at no additional cost. These complex calculations are developed and tested by J. J. Keller regulatory experts, so our customers "an relax in the knowledge that their fleets will remain compliant.”
