The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) continues to update its resources pertaining to DOT guidelines for the drug testing Clearinghouse.
Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) manages the random DOT testing programs for multiple employers and owner-operators in its role as one of northeast Wisconsin’s trusted drug testing consortiums.
The DOT drug testing cutoff levels include initial test cutoff concentration levels as well as confirmatory test cutoff concentration levels, which are generally lower.
Non-DOT reasonable suspicion training for supervisors also plays an important role in safety, and Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC)offers a program to meet that need.
While it is a safe bet that drivers covered by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations will need a post-accident drug test, that is not the case in every situation.
DOT drug testing requirements extend to a variety of events during the course of a driver’s employment.
As mandated by its drug and alcohol regulation, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will, effective January I, 2019, increase the minimum rate of random drug testing from 25 percent to 50 percent of covered employees for employers subject to FTA's drug and alcohol regulation.
Completing a DOT background check & drug test is a requirement for all carriers and owner-operators that operate under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.
Meeting DOT FMCSA regulations for drug and alcohol testing is a task made easier for owner-operators through owner-operators consortiums, such as that maintained by WDTC.
Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium fills a critical need for trucking companies, bus companies, owner-operators and other entities subject to federal regulations in its role as a US DOT drug testing consortium.
