DOT drug test compliance is an employer responsibility

Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium DOT drug test complianceA drug testing consortium can help you stay in compliance

DOT drug test compliance is a significant aspect of the administrative responsibilities involved with employing drivers that fall under DOT regulations. Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) helps owner-operators and employers meet their compliance responsibilities, but the ultimate accountability remains with the employer.

The DOT and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) require all CDL holders to be tested for alcohol and drugs. As a Certified Third Party Administrator (C-TPA), WDTC can assist with tasks such as scheduling drivers for DOT random drug tests, post-accident tests and pre-employment screenings.

WDTC’s consortium provides perhaps the biggest assist when it comes to random drug testing coordination. CDL holders enter into a large pool of drivers within our drug testing consortium in which only a percentage are selected for random testing. We can then schedule any driver who has been chosen at random for an appointment at one of our more than 17,000 collection sites across the country.

DOT drug test compliance doesn’t have to be a burden

Statistically and logistically, participating in a consortium such as WDTC reduces the amount of time required to fulfill your DOT drug test compliance responsibilities both for your office staff as well as your drivers.

Our drug testing fee simplifies the DOT drug test compliance process. This fee covers collection site services at all of our affiliated collection sites across the country which includes — medical review officer (MRO) services, lab work and the collection fee that occurs within our network of providers.

Breath alcohol tests are additional, and our consortium fee is an annual fee for your quarterly roster selections and electronic record keeping. Once your account is set up an electronic portal is available for your company.

In addition, we compile all applicable charges on one bill to further simplify your administrative workload. Call WDTC to see how we can help you meet DOT drug test compliance requirements while streamlining your operations.
