Transportation Resources offers program set-up and review of records for employers and drug
& alcohol service providers. Employers regulated by the Department of Transportation
(DOT) are required to maintain documentation of their testing programs, results, reports and even medical qualification of certain employees. Health care providers must understand these requirements and ensure that their program supports an employer's compliance and understand their federal limitations and legal responsibilities regarding these services. We can assess programs, make recommendations and help implement changes.
Regulated employers are required to maintain certain records relating to their drug
& alcohol-testing program. Depending on the type of records, employers may have to keep them for 1 to up to 5 years. Additionally, they are required to generate or keep reports either on an annual or semi-annual basis, and present them upon request or review by an authorized federal or state agency.
These records include, but are not limited to:
- Drug & Alcohol test records
- Records relating to random testing programs
- Annual detailed summary of testing
- Laboratory statistical summaries (employer specific)
- Refusals by employees to take tests
- Substance abuse evaluations/records (by counselors)
- Supervisory training records
We can either provide a manual record-keeping system for small employers, or assist employers in electronic information retention within their current systems.
