There have been rumblings about the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) new Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse for years, and it appears that it is finally a reality. While many of our clients like the idea of quickly accessing a database to view if a potential candidate has recently failed a drug and alcohol test, the question is will the government roll out a system that’s easy to maintain and use? The notes how this will be released has been coming in drips but it’s very clear there will be new administrative duties for your staff.
You will find all the information on the Clearinghouse at their website. We recommend starting now register your drivers registered by January 6th at this page: https://clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/Register
Feel free to contact us with any specific questions on how the Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse will affect your business and how best to set up your driver screening and uploading random results.
