Drug and Alcohol Testing and Compliance

If the vehicle your driver is operating requires a commercial driver’s license, drug and alcohol testing is required by law.

 

Transportation Compliance Service will provide all services related to DOT drug and alcohol testing and program management to help you pass your safety audit and stay in compliance at all times.

Drug and Alcohol Testing and Compliance Services

We provide custom drug and alcohol compliance programs tailored to your needs. Whether you need help with a complete program, or have more specific needs, we’ll work with you to ensure your drug and alcohol program meets or exceeds FMCSA standards.
Chain of custody forms are used to indicate the integrity of the path a drug testing specimen takes from the time the sample is taken until the results are delivered.

It is important that drug and alcohol testing organizations follow strict protocols to ensure the integrity of their tests.

TCS has over 20 years of experience with drug testing and chain of custody. Put your program in our hands and we’ll make sure it gets done the right way.
A Drug and Alcohol Testing Consortium is a software program run by a Third-Party Administrator or an organization that manages all or part of an employer’s DOT drug and alcohol testing program.

Companies who have trucks that require CDL licenses to operate are required to have their drivers enrolled in a random testing consortium. TCS maintains a DOT compliant consortium where drivers are enrolled and selected at random and notified to report for testing.

TCS has a nationwide (US and Canada) network of testing locations so no matter where you are located, you can complete the testing process. TCS will help you manage the complex requirements outlined by federal or state random drug and alcohol testing regulations.

Enrollment in our program provides you with the compliance services you need to pass your DOT audit.

TCS works with more than 10,000 DOT‐approved FMCSA drug specimen collection sites and alcohol testing technicians. These sites are located across the United States and Canada. Wherever your drivers are operating or wherever your business is located, there is a testing location near your drivers.

Your supervisors need the skills to make reasonable suspicion determinations. This driver safety requirement consists of one hour of supervisor training specific to alcohol detection and one hour related to drug abuse.

The experienced team at TCS provides supervisor training to give them the knowledge and confidence to make the right decisions.

Companies who fall under FMCSA drug testing requirements are required to test their drivers for the following reasons:

• Pre-Employment
• Random
• Reasonable Cause
• Post Accident
• Return to Duty
• Follow-Up

In each case that a test is performed it is important that it is done at the right time and for the right reason.

TCS compliance specialists work directly with our clients to make sure the testing process happens correctly and timely.

We’re here to help with drug and alcohol compliance.

I’ve had nothing but great experiences with TCS.
Everyone I’ve been in contact with have been so helpful and knowledgable. I also want to say that Brittany in the IFTA department was amazing.

She was able to answer all my questions and was willing to take the time to dumb things down for me a bit. She’s a rockstar. Highly recommend TCS for all compliance needs!
