American Background Information Services Inc. (ABI), a leading provider of employment screening services that enhance the safety, security, and efficiency of the workplace, today launched a range of first class Department of Transportation (DOT) screening services.
Specifically designed to support clients in the transportation sector, ABI’s DOT services provide employers with effective, time-saving employment screening solutions.
ABI’s DOT solutions focus on the trucking and other industries subject to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, particularly 49 CFR Parts 40, 382, and 391. These regulations include DOT-mandated drug and alcohol testing programs; evaluation of driver qualifications; and eligibility to perform safety-sensitive duties.
ABI’s DOT services include:
* Commercial Drivers’ License Information System (CDLIS) search
* Motor Vehicle Record searches (pre-employment & annual)
* Previous Employment & Safety Performance History Verification
* Drug & Alcohol Testing History Verification
* Breath Alcohol Screening, including random selection
* Urine Drug Screening, including random selection
In today’s legal climate, an organization’s inconsistent and undocumented decision making can increase its exposure to claims of discrimination, penalties, criminal offenses, and even closure of business. To reduce the burden placed on DOT-regulated employers and their Safety Departments or Designated Employee Representatives, ABI is also offering DOT Risk Scoring services. Risk Scoring allows the employer to evaluate the screening elements that could potentially disqualify an applicant or employee from operating a commercial motor vehicle or performing other safety-sensitive duties. As a result, clients are able to prioritize and manage their responsibilities efficiently to ensure compliance with DOT requirements.
