What is DOT testing?
DOT testing includes physicals, DOT drug screens, DOT alcohol testing, pre-employment and post-accident testing. All DOT physical examinations at Thumbs Up Compliance are conducted by licensed medical examiners. DOT regulations state that prior to the first time an individual performs safety-sensitive functions for an employer, the individual shall undergo testing for controlled substances.
The employee's medical history, blood pressure and diabetes testing, and a general physical exam is performed during a DOT physical to look for conditions that may impact a Commercial Motor Vehicle driver's ability to operate a vehicle in a safe manner.
