What is the Purpose of the FMCSA Clearinghouse?
The Clearinghouse will improve highway safety by helping employers, FMCSA, State Licensing Agencies, and State law enforcement to quickly and efficiently identify drivers who are not legally permitted to operate CMVs due to drug and alcohol program violations. This secure online database will provide access to real-time information, ensuring that drivers committing these violations complete the necessary steps before getting back behind the wheel, or performing other safety-sensitive functions.
How Can HealthWorks Help You With Compliance?
Our role at HealthWorks is C/TPA (Consortia/Third Party Administrator). Our staff just attended a DATIA (Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association) conference featuring FMCSA speakers in order to be educated on how to help client companies with these new regulations. HealthWorks will be holding informational sessions on the Clearinghouse throughout the month of November.
Employers can designate HealthWorks as their C/TPA to Query and Report drug and alcohol violations. An explanation on how this work will be given at the informational sessions:
