DOT Physicals

The public depends on your services in order to keep the roads and transportation avenues open and safe. Therefore, it is important to field qualified personnel who take their responsibilities seriously. DOT drug and alcohol screens are designed to ensure employees are sober and capable of fulfilling their duties.

 

 

Effective and Secure DOT physicals

 

When your company works with the Department of Transportation, it is necessary to have all your employees screened and tested according to their codes. Complying with these guidelines can be challenging. At Akeso, we are experienced with the administrative challenges you will face and help you navigate them. We provide a variety of screenings that show state and federal agencies that your company is compliant with all applicable laws.

 

Written Program Guidelines

When your employees are properly informed of their responsibilities and expectations, they better prepared to follow state and federal policies. The health and safety regulations as mandated by the Department of Transportation can be difficult to navigate.

 

For this reason, our trained medical and safety professionals are available to assist in your organization’s written program development guidelines. We help your agency draft and enact informative materials that clearly explain regulations to your employees.
