Expert Simplification of Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Compliance
Madison, WI December 16, 2019 – Transportation compliance service provider Fleetworthy Solutions announced a new Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse service to simplify compliance with the new FMCSA regulation. Fleetworthy’s D&A Clearinghouse Management program is a full service, turn-key solution to help motor carriers comply with FMCSA Part 382 Subpart G which goes into effect on January 6th, 2020. The new Clearinghouse is an online government database that will give motor carriers, FMCSA, and State agencies real-time information about CDL drivers’ drug and alcohol program violations. The goal of the database is to prevent job-hopping by drivers who fail their drug and alcohol tests. However, the new regulations will burden safety managers with more Clearinghouse duties on top of everything they already do today and put pressure on driver recruiting by adding more process steps and dependencies. Motor carriers will be required to check the Clearinghouse for all prospective new employees prior to hiring and are required to check for violations at least once per year for all its active CDL drivers.
“Fleetworthy has been building out the scope and features of this program for some time. We take designing our products based on industry needs and customer feedback seriously. With already ample experience helping manage Drug and Alcohol testing and reporting programs, we feel that Fleetworthy is positioned to be a leader in the new federally-mandated market of Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse program management.” – Michael Precia, CEO and President, Fleetworthy Solutions
