DOT drug and alcohol testing
DOT Drug and alcohol testing:
Compliance is Not an Option
You are required to have a DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program when you use vehicles that weigh more than 26,000 lbs., or if it carries more than 16 passengers, or if you transport hazardous materials that need a placard. DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing regulations are very specific about what you need to do to stay in compliance, among the most complicated regulations targeting motor carriers. If you fail to have a DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program or if your program fails to measure up to the DOT regulations, you are risking serious trouble for yourself in the form of penalties.
Failure to follow the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing regulations is considered a ‘red flag’ violation. Carriers caught without a program or with a non-compliant program face being pulled off the road immediately for safety of the lives of others. After that, you risk heavy fines, DOT audits and permanent out-of-service orders for you and your drivers. The DOT can even ban you from managing a motor carrier operation ever again. So Mann Consultants basically help you out in following the rules of DOT in a good way.
