Errors in the Hiring Process Account for 25 Percent of all Violations
Foley
5 mins read
In 2019 so far, over 25 percent of all audit violations were from noncompliance with DOT-regulated drug and alcohol testing requirements. This has resulted in carriers being been hit with over $9 million in fines, with an average fine amount of almost $9,000.

Here at Foley, we’ve been paying close attention to the upcoming Clearinghouse and are prepared to help our current and future customers comply with their new drug and alcohol testing requirements through a comprehensive, online solution. To learn more about our DOT drug and alcohol testing program, please give us a call at (860) 815-0869 or click here to visit us online.

What to look for in a partner?
1. A DOT-Specific Program

Your drug and alcohol testing program must meet all DOT requirements in terms of things like the types of tests provided, the collection process and the random testing rate. Failing to implement a random testing program and using a driver before receiving a negative pre-employment test result were a few of the biggest violations this year. With the support of a fully-compliant partner, the probability of such a violation occurring becomes almost nonexistent.

 
2. Availability of Testing Locations

Especially when you’re managing interstate drivers, it’s important to know that they’ll always be in close proximity to a DOT collection site. That way, if they get pulled for a random drug test while out on the road, or require post-accident testing, they’ll be able to meet those requirements without going too far out of the way.

When evaluating DOT drug testing providers, look for one that has a large network of collection sites for you to choose from. This will make it easier for you and your drivers to operate compliantly.

3. Online Program Management

Managing your drivers’ compliance from the convenience of an online portal eliminates time-consuming paperwork and enables you to easily view random notifications, add or delete drivers from your program and review drug testing results as they become available. All of this data is stored securely and is made available from any Internet-enable device, ensuring that all of your testing documentation is organized and readily available in case of an audit.

4. Clearinghouse Compliance

Managing your drivers’ compliance from the convenience of an online portal eliminates time-consuming paperwork and enables you to easily view random notifications, add or delete drivers from your program and review drug testing results as they become available. All of this data is stored securely and is made available from any Internet-enable device, ensuring that all of your testing documentation is organized and readily available in case of an audit.

 

 

5. Electronic Chain of Custody Form (eCCF) Capabilities

Electronic Chain of Custody Forms (eCCFs) simplify the process of sending employees for drug tests by eliminating the handoff of paper throughout the process. Forms are automatically sent to the drug testing facility and updated electronically throughout the process – simplifying the process and eliminating legibility and transcription errors. For Foley portal customers, employers are able to get real-time updates on the status of an employee’s drug test as well, something that couldn’t be accomplished with paper forms.

Here at Foley, we’ve been paying close attention to the upcoming Clearinghouse and are prepared to help our current and future customers comply with their new drug and alcohol testing requirements through a comprehensive, online solution. To learn more about our DOT drug and alcohol testing program, please give us a call at (860) 815-0869 or click here to visit us online.
