There have been many significant regulatory changes at the U.S. Department of Transportation, as well as issues at the state level that affect employers of workers who are subject to DOT requirements.
In 2015, the most recent year for which the DOT is reporting, the DOT assessed fines or settled Notices of Claim totaling approximately $33.8 million. In 2014, the total was approximately $36.3 million. Fines for individual motor carriers ranged from approximately $7,000 to $160,000.
In this webinar, conducted by partners Ken Carlson and Tommy Eden, we’ll give you five fixes that will help to bring your drug and alcohol testing program into compliance, avoid DOT fines related to your program, and make your workplace both safer and drug-free.
We’ll cover the following “fixes”:
- No. 1: Update your policy to include drug testing for opioids
- No. 2: Update your driver job descriptions, your fitness-for-duty policy, and your driver accommodation protocol
- No. 3: Update your policy to comply with the new Clearinghouse Regulations
- No. 4: Require drivers to disclose legal prescription medications that may affect their ability to work safely
- No. 5: Require drivers to disclose off-duty “driving while impaired” offenses
