Drivers in a DOT consortium have a statistically lower chance of being selected for testing
Owner-operators and many employers understand that leveraging the statistical strength of a DOT consortium such as Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) makes it much easier to meet DOT drug test compliance requirements. A DOT consortium still may not be well-understood by some employers who have opted to go it alone.
As a DOT consortium, we manage our customers’ DOT drug and alcohol testing programs and help them stay compliant with DOT/Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules and regulations. Owner-operators are not permitted to manage random testing themselves, making a DOT consortium an obvious decision. However, companies that employ drivers have a choice in the matter.
The most significant advantage of joining a DOT consortium involves random drug and alcohol testing. Members of the consortium are considered a single entity with regard to DOT random testing requirements. The greater number of drivers included in a DOT consortium means the odds of an individual driver or several from the same company being selected for a random test are dramatically lower.
The advantages of WDTC as your DOT consortium
Accreditation – WDTC is an accredited, certified third-party administrator (C-TPA). Our staff has completed training through the Drug and Alcohol Testing Institute, giving our customers the confidence that we can help them meet all DOT compliance regulations.
Simplified fees – Our simplified fee schedule means there are no hidden fees. On one bill we include services such as lab work, medical review officer (MRO) fees, and collection fees from within our network of providers.
National testing sites – We are affiliated with more than 17,000 collection sites across the USA. This means your drivers have convenient access to a testing facility when chosen for a random test without the need to drive significantly off-route.
Test scheduling – Our electronic process creates a testing event accessible from the driver’s phone without the need for paperwork. This includes pre-employment, random and post-accident testing.
