NTA Testing announces a DOT driver safety history investigation service as an additional service alongside their DOT drug screening services.
When hiring a new driver, it is important to consider a few other things aside from publicizing the availability of the position and interviewing prospective drivers. It is mandatory for Motor Carriers to adhere to several regulations. These deal with how drivers are hired and how each driver’s safety record is maintained. Each driver that is hired must have his or her own Safety Performance History (also referred to as SPH) and Driver Qualification Files (also referred to as DQF).
In addition to keeping track of these driver files, it is also required that all drivers adhere to the regulations set by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Companies can ensure that each driver sticks to the regulations by using a driver investigation service. This type of service ensures that drivers comply with the regulation.
Nationwide Testing Association, Inc. (NTA Testing) announces that they offer the Driver Application/Safety History Investigation service. In addition to the service of investigation, NTA Testing also provides the service of filling out the required document for The Department of Transportation as stated in Part 40 and regulation 391.
Part of these services include:
- Having the driver fill out the Driver Application document by including a listing of his or her former employers.
- Receiving the Safety History document dated and signed by the driver. The form is then sent to each previous employer.
- Completing the process within 30 days of the driver’s hire date.
- Providing each of the driver’s prior employers a copy of the completed Safety History document.
- Keeping track of all contact attempts and the reply of each employer.
- Providing a Failure to Respond document if after 30 days we are unable to obtain a response from any of the previous employers.
Each form is then sent to the client so that it can be added to the Driver Qualification File. Having peace of mind when hiring drivers is essential to protect a company and comply with the Department of Transportation.
