For companies in the transportation industry, managing DOT compliance is an important part of doing business. However, adhering to demanding standards that frequently change is also time-consuming, and too often, companies find themselves continuously playing catch-up with compliance issues. With the prospect of major fines and disruption to your business for non-compliance, can you really risk not having a clear strategy for staying on the right side of DOT mandates? DOT compliance consulting can help you take control and feel more confident about your approach to managing compliance. Here is a look at some of the benefits of working with a qualified DOT compliance consulting service.
Develop a System That Fits Your Business
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all compliance plan. By working a consulting service, you can develop a system that works for the way you do business. Having a set strategy for everything from drug and alcohol testing to drive qualification checks and training will make it easier to ensure that there are no missing pieces of your program and that you are not overlooking any critical part of DOT compliance regulations that could put your business at risk.
Spot and Correct Compliance Issues
Are you getting rid of files before DOT regulations allow? Have you failed to conduct sufficient drug and alcohol tests on your employees? A compliance consultant can identify areas in which your protocols aren’t up to regulations, so you can take steps to fix them before they lead to costly fines for your business.
Build Complete Employee Files
DOT regulations require you to conduct thorough pre-employment screenings, and in some instances, you may want to have screenings performed that aren’t required by the DOT but that you believe are smart for your business. A consulting company can generate everything from criminal background reports to CDLIS records so that you can vet employees and maintain useful files about your team.
