Transportation Companies Can Then Focus on Their Businesses
From making sure equipment works correctly to regularly testing employees for drugs and alcohol, safety is a priority for transportation companies. Since business owners need to make sure their drug testing programs meet national requirements, there are many rules and regulations that need to be followed. Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) provides reliable, affordable drug testing for employers. We provide mobile, onsite drug testing and have 8,000 collection sites across the country. With onsite drug testing, there is less lost work time.
Federal guidelines require transportation companies to not only drug test all new employees, but to also conduct random drug testing of their employees. WDTC is a third party administrator with the Department of Transportation and makes sure your company follows the rules. We developed and manage a drug-testing consortium to help your company stay compliant with random drug testing rules. No employees are allowed to enter WDTC’s consortium pool until a negative pre-employment drug test is filed with us. In addition, we require proof of a drug test that has been completed in the 12 months prior to requesting entrance to the consortium pool.
WDTC complies with all of the DOT testing regulations including maintaining a random pool of workers, a quarterly random selection of employees (25 percent for drugs and 10 percent for alcohol), quarterly and year-end summary of drug and alcohol tests and mandatory blind samples for quality control.
“Business owners have a lot to think about. At WDTC, we can manage their drug testing programs so they do not have to worry that they are in compliance,” said WDTC President Mike Bray. “Employers are relieved when we can take care of their random drug testing program with our convenient testing options.”
WDTC partners with transportation companies to provide a variety of affordable screening services, including DNA paternity testing, DOT medical exams and training, drug testing for employers and third party administration. We also conduct reasonable suspicion training so supervisors understand what to look for before requesting a drug or alcohol test. WDTC sets itself apart by managing high-quality, convenient drug and alcohol testing processes for transportation businesses.
