DOT Compliance… It’s More Than Just a Drug Test

Presented By: Leslie Prince, Compliance Systems, LLC

When focusing on a full-service FMCSA compliance program, motor carriers have a multitude of regulations with which they must comply.  We all are very aware about the importance of ensuring that a driver has a pre-employment drug test before they come on board, and a few people may have heard about the 3-year previous employment drug/alcohol test history verification process, but what about the other 11 things that must be in a driver qualification file?  Does the carrier even have driver qualification files?  Or have you ever had an FMCSA-regulated client call in a total panic because the DOT just called them and said they were coming in for an audit?  What exactly does that mean and how can you help?

This webinar will inform participants about the federal and state audit and record-keeping program to which all motor carriers are subject and how a service provider can assist their clients with regulatory compliance.  

About the Presenter:

Originally from Owensboro, KY, Leslie Prince has lived in Atlanta, GA for over 20 years, making her an ‘almost’ native Atlantan. She began her career in DOT compliance in 1990 working in the drug and alcohol testing department of an occupational health clinic. Much of that time was spent assisting companies regulated by either the Federal Aviation Administration or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration with the development and implementation of their drug and alcohol testing programs. In 2010, Leslie, along with Tony Waters, established Compliance Systems LLC, a consulting organization with dual emphasis on motor carrier regulatory compliance and service provider training.  A full-service consulting firm, Compliance Systems specializes in policy & procedure development, management and execution of regulatory guidelines, document management, and software and education solutions for DOT-regulated employers. Compliance Systems provides customized service to fit the needs of the individual employer ranging from new entrant DOT compliance and application to full service day-to-day program management including file management, training and pre-audit preparation and post-audit response.
