Are You Compliant?
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), every CDL driver must register their drug and alcohol status (C/TPA) for vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or more. This also applies to drivers of passenger buses with 16 or more seats. These rules are set out in CFR PART 382.107 & 49 and CFR PART 40.
According to the SDL, CMW-driver supervisors are required to complete two 60-minute training sessions. Each of these will help identify symptoms of alcohol or controlled substance use. In case of suspicion, the driver must be checked.
Check your company's compliance with FMCSA to make sure that it is in accord and get more information on regulations for interstate commerce.
A Consortium for Drug and Alcohol Testing is required for companies with any employee operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) that requires a CDL in intrastate or interstate commerce.
Check your company's compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and get more information on how to update its US DOT number in accordance with a filing schedule.
The FMCSA grants you operating permission, which allows you to labor for hire across state boundaries. If your status is "Not Permitted," it implies your operating authority is inactive and you are not authorized to work for hire in interstate commerce.
Registration with the FMCSA and possession of a USDOT number is mandatory for companies with commercial vehicles. This applies to the carriage of passengers and the carriage of cargo for interstate commerce.
The transportation of hazardous material, including hazardous wastes, is a legal responsibility that requires registration with the United States Department Of Transportation (DOT). Owners or operators must ﬁle an annual statement and pay fees accordingly.
The U.S Department of Transportation requires all motor carriers transporting hazardous materials to hold a Federal Hazardous Materials Safety Permit, and they must renew it every two years following the date on which FMCSA issues them with their first permit - this ensures that these drivers will have adequate training in case anything goes wrong during transportation.
The number one way to prevent and reduce hazardous materials (hazmat) incidents caused by human error is through training. All employees who handle or come into contact with any type of hazmats must follow the statute pertaining 49 U-S 5101 et seq. This includes ALL company representatives.
