Does your business work with DOT? Are you required to comply with DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations? IPE Screening is your go-to DOT Consortium/TPA in Springfield, Mo. with over 4,000 collectors across the United States.
Anything involving compliance with a governmental organization is going to be time-consuming, involves lots of paperwork, and penalties for not doing everything just right. What a headache! I bet sometimes you just want to throw your hands up and say “Forget it!” There is a way out of this nightmare. By using a Consortium/Third-Party Administrator (C/TPA), you can outsource all that red tape, ensure you are in compliance and get back all that time you are spending trying to make sure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted.
If your business is required to be compliant with DOT Rule 49 CFR Part 40, Part 382, Part 383 (CDL License), Part 391 (Driver Qualifications), and Part 392 (Driving Commercial Motor Vehicles), you should consider using a Consortium/Third-Party Administrator to help design and administer a random drug and alcohol testing policy. Especially if your business is not large enough to self-administer the random drug and alcohol tests. In addition to actually administering the test itself, the C/TPA will be well versed in all the responsibilities and requirements of the rules and regulations with which you are required to be compliant.
Because the DOT ultimately holds the employer responsible for the actions of all representatives, company officials, and agents (this includes service agents), it is important who you choose to be your Consortium/Third-Party Administrator. IPE Screening, whose main office is located in Springfield, Mo., is ready to be your trusted C/TPA. We are thoroughly versed in the DOT rules and regulations and what is expected of you as an employer to be in compliance. We are confident after you research your options you will end up back here at IPE Screening ready to have us help you with your random drug and alcohol testing program.
