Introduction to DOT ComplianceThe first portion is an overview of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) and what you need to know to maintain compliance. We have condensed the most important performance measures you must make part of your company’s safety systems in order to be minimally compliant with the DOT regs. We will use a little-known tool – the MCS-150A – to illustrate your regulatory obligations. You will also be trained on the MCS-90, and what you need to do to safeguard your company’s safety record. We will provide answers to the following questions and more:
- What is CSA and how does it affect you?
- What is a BASIC?
- Who needs to register with the FMCSA?
- What does the DOT (and everyone with internet access) know about this company?
- What do you need to do with and what can you do about this data?
- Are you required to have Motor Carrier (MC) Authority?
- What are the MOST IMPORTANT things you need to understand about Driver Fitness, Drug and Alcohol Testing, Fatigued Driving, and Vehicle Maintenance?
Supervisor Drug & Alcohol TrainingThe main topics addressed in this DOT-mandated training (required per FMCSR §382.603) are drug use, unlawful use of prescription medicine and excessive alcohol use. In addition to covering those topics, we also answer the most common questions and concerns about the Drug & Alcohol BASIC, like:
- Who gets tested?
- What should they be tested for?
- What is the allowable Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)?
- How do you recognize a driver who is impaired and what should you do? What are the rules for conducting a reasonable suspicion test?
- How should you handle a driver who self-reports? What should you do when one driver reports another?
- Can you afford to not know the answer to these questions?
