For companies, the DOT requires that supervisors and employees take a drug and alcohol training course as part of their drug and alcohol workplace policy. PMTS offers both an online and in-person options to fulfill these educational requirements.
The Department of Transportation requires anyone with a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) that operates a vehicle over 26,000 lbs, anyone who operates a vehicle with 16 or more passengers, or anyone transporting hazardous materials to enroll in a drug consortium pool and develop a drug testing program.
Yes, the Department of Transportation specifically states that all drivers with a CDL must participate in a random drug and alcohol testing consortium, regardless of whether you are an owner operator or are employed by a company.
Polk Medical Testing Solutions makes it simple for new clients to get started with our drug testing consortium. Simply consult with us about the appropriate products from our Services Page, pay with our secure checkout, and within three business days you will receive an enrollment packet. All participating employees may then proceed to one of our 10,000 testing facilities to complete their pre employment test. Once the tests are complete, your company will be a fully-compliant DOT drug testing program.
Once notified of the requirement for testing, DOT drug testing requirements state that the employee must proceed immediately to a testing facility to be tested.
PMTS makes annual reporting and potential audits a smooth process for all clients. By enrolling in our DOT drug testing consortium, clients have a support system and organization of all necessary documentation including: policies, test results, enrollment records, MIS reports, and all other forms.
Return results on tests can vary based on the type of test and the results. Alcohol test results can be immediately printed out onsite at the approved testing facility. For DOT drug testing, negative results can be recorded and reported via our secure channels within two to three business days. If the initial drug test is positive, the medical review officer will first contact the employee to see if there is a legitimate medical reason for the positive before determining if the test results are positive.
If you still aren’t sure about what the Department of Transportation requires for compliance or have other questions regarding your products or services, don’t hesitate to contact Polk Medical Testing Solutions at 1-877-369-POLK (7655)
