Change your HOS status

Leer en Español

This article describes the HOS status codes available in LogBook and how to change your status manually or automatically. For information on how to use some of the sub statuses see Use the sub statuses Personal Use, Yard Moves, and Split Sleeper Berth.

HOS statuses available in LogBook

When using ELD, your time is allocated one of the following statuses:

  • OF (off duty): When you are not working
  • ON (on duty, not driving): When you are working, but not driving. For example, when you are performing administrative tasks like filling in forms or maintenance tasks on your vehicle.
  • DR (driving): When you are driving your vehicle
  • SB (sleeper berth): When you are taking a break, resting in the sleeper berth of your vehicle

Some of these statuses have sub statuses that allow you to specify further what you are doing. For example, when you are driving your vehicle for personal use, you can select a sub status of Personal Use on the Off-Duty status. Or, when you are moving your vehicle around the depot yard for maintenance, you can select a sub status of Yard Move on the On Duty, Not Driving status. Your administrator needs to enable these two sub statuses so that you can use them.

For more information on the supported sub statuses, See off-duty and sleeper-berth sub statuses or on-duty sub statuses.

If you log in and out, and change your status appropriately, your logs should be correct. As per regulations, we recommend that you certify your logs daily to confirm that they are correct. If you still notice any issues with your logs, you can edit your logs (with some exceptions).

 

Change your HOS status manually

You must change your status manually in the following situations:

  • When you start your shift, after you have logged in to LogBook. Change to ON.
  • When you finish your shift, before you log out of LogBook. Change to OF.
  • When you are taking a rest break. Change to SB or OF. For the 30-minute break, you can also be on duty, not driving (ON)

Any transitions to the Driving status occur automatically. The ELD hardware device installed in your vehicle detects when your vehicle starts moving and changes your status to Driving. The hardware device also detects when your vehicle stops for more than 6 minutes and changes your status to On Duty. For more information, see Use Driving mode.
