Did you know: DOT/FMCSA noncompliance can result in fines up to $10,000 and the potential for an out-of-service order, putting your company out of business.
Violations by a DOT regulated company include:
1. Having no drug and alcohol testing policy and no supervisor reasonable suspicion training.
2. Not being enrolled in a stand-alone or random testing consortium program.
3. Using a driver who has not completed a drug test with a negative test result.
4. Using a driver who refused a required alcohol or drug test.
5. Using a driver who has previously tested positive and has not completed a return-to-duty process as required by a
Substance Abuse Professional (SAP)
6. Not registering and running queries through the FMCSA Clearinghouse.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) publishes rules and regulations (49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 40) on who must conduct drug and alcohol tests, how to conduct those tests, and what procedures to use when testing.
We at Louisiana Occupational Health Services (LOHS), offer a local comprehensive DOT drug & alcohol testing program including policy development and trainings, DOT random consortium options, and FMCSA Clearinghouse consulting services to help keep you in compliance.
The Department of Transportation rules and regulations allow for Consortiums to provide the random testing of regulated employees in order to comply with the DOT standards. A Consortium pools your DOT regulated employees with other DOT regulated employees from other companies in order to have a large enough base to select individuals at random throughout the year.
Who is required to test by the DOT/ FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration)?
• Owner- Operators possessing a CDL. (MUST BE ENROLLED WITHIN A CONSORTIUM)
• Any employers with drivers possessing a CDL, regardless of number of drivers over 1.
• Anyone possessing a CDL not covered under any other sponsored employer.
After hearing several companies in the area starting to be audited on having a Drug and Alcohol Testing Program in place and in DOT/ FMCSA compliance, and then ultimately fined for not, we felt a need to have a local Consortium for our local companies in Louisiana. LOHS has been providing Louisiana with occupational health services including Drug and Alcohol Testing and Pools for over 20 years. Please read the attached sheet for pricing and other membership information in regard to LOHS Consortium to keep your business and employees in DOT/FMCSA compliance.
