A Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse deadline is looming and many smaller carriers many not be aware of the requirements. Because smaller carriers don’t have occasion to hire as many drivers, many of them have not yet needed to interact with the FMCSA’s new Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse. That’s why the deadline this January to conduct limited queries on all current employees may be harder for smaller carriers than others.
Is it important? Yes—a recent article in Transport Topics reported that 46,000 violations were recorded in the clearinghouse in the first 10 months. And importantly, only about 4,400 drivers have completed the return-to-work process.
That’s why Axele is providing a complimentary webinar this week on the requirements of the Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse deadline and what you need to do, featuring a leading expert. Here’s what you can expect to get out of it:
