DOT Consortium

DOT Consortium

Our friendly staff can work with you, ensuring that your policies and procedures comply. If they don’t, we can help you develop a better program.

Some companies must comply with the Department of Transportation’s complicated rule 49 CFR Part 40. The associated regulations that companies must follow are complex, hard to read, and difficult to navigate.

Consortium Services

Companies under DOT regulations are required to comply with federal requirements for random testing. CJ Cooper & Associates offers customized randomization programs based on those requirements.

For larger companies with many employees under DOT regulations, a stand-alone pool may be sufficient to ensure the appropriate frequency of testing for your employees.

For smaller companies, a national consortium pool is the best option. A national consortium ensures your employees are part of a random drug testing pool while providing the advantages of a larger pool size, including reducing the frequency of testing for smaller companies.

Contact CJ Cooper & Associates to determine which consortium option is right for your company.

Drug and Alcohol Testing

As a DOT-regulated organization, you must meet specific federal requirements, which vary depending on the mode of transportation you operate. A very specific drug and alcohol testing program is the first critical piece of a DOT program.

The Part 40 rule requires all safety-sensitive employers to conduct proper drug and alcohol testing, including pre-employment, randomized, reasonable suspicion, and post-accident testing.

CJ Cooper & Associates offers nationwide testing services with collection services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We use a comprehensive provider network system for easy scheduling and the collectors at CJ Cooper’s network facilities are trained according to federal DOT regulations and protocols to ensure that your employees receive accurate and reliable testing and that you remain in compliance every time they visit a CJ Coopers’ network facility.

On-Site Services

While not always required by DOT regulations, on-site testing can provide additional safety and convenience for employers.

CJ Coopers’ network–certified collectors can come to your facility, saving you time, reducing downtime, and providing you peace of mind when random, reasonable suspicion, or post-accident testing is required. Our staff adheres strictly to all federal guidelines, even when on-site—including strict chain-of-custody protocols and accurate collection procedures for both urine drug collections and breath alcohol tests.

Implementing your own drug and alcohol testing program can be a challenge. No matter the size of a company, employers face compliance issues that include state laws, federal laws, OSHA, and other agency regulations that must be met – and these rules change over time.

To make sure your drug program is compliant with state and federal regulations, it involves a lot of research, planning, and administrative work – all of which can be costly and time-consuming.

As a Best-in-Class Consortium/Third Party Administrator (C/TPA) and collection site, CJ Cooper & Associates is proud to be entrusted to manage our customers’ drug and alcohol testing programs in a variety of industries.
