Positive drug tests account for 82 percent of total violations reported through the DOT Clearinghouse, according to statistics released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The DOT Clearinghouse went live in January 2020 as a tracking tool to prevent drivers from switching employers without completing return-to-duty requirements.
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.
DOT drug test compliance is a significant aspect of the administrative responsibilities involved with employing drivers that fall under DOT regulations.
Joining a drug testing consortium such as Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) can reduce that stress by ensuring you meet DOT requirements, sometimes without having any of your drivers actually get tested.
While that requirement is an obvious starting point in meeting driver safety minimums, Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) customers rely on us to stay up to date on changes surrounding DOT drug screen procedures, as well as non-DOT drug tests.
Employers depend on workers throughout their organization to perform at a high level in the name of safety and accuracy. Completing non-DOT drug tests for employees not covered by DOT regulations ensures your workforce is clean regardless of their duties.
Results from the first full year of operation of the DOT Clearinghouse confirm that employers and the public are benefitting from the extra monitoring protection afforded by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) nationwide database.
A key benefit of accessing the drug test collection sites in our network is the significant amount of time saved compared to completing tests at major medical facilities.
Fortunately, Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) has access to a network of more than 17,000 drug testing centers across the USA for convenient post-accident and random drug and alcohol testing.
One of the more common issues that Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) sees is how employers handle post-accident testing.
