Understand Your Role in the DOT Collection Process
When it comes to testing, employers and truck drivers should know what to expect before being tested, their responsibilities, and the regulated rules during the collection process. Why is this important? We see many people coming in for their random drug test making poor decision that result in a refusal to test which leads to loss of their commercial driving privilege. This costs owner operators and fleets because it is keeping drivers off the road.
CleanFleet is passionate about helping prevent simple mistakes in the collection process. That is why we put together a Testing Tips Kit that includes a poster for the break room, personal driver testing tips cards with the main testing tips to know if going in for a test, and training material for employers to use during a driver meeting.
Some of the tips include:
- Refusing to submit to a DOT drug and alcohol test will result in loss of commercial driving privilege.
- Leaving the testing area without authorization may be considered a refusal to test.
- And many more.
