DriverFacts releases Drug and Alcohol Assistant

The process for carriers to ensure compliance with DOT drug and alcohol regulations can be overwhelming because there are testing requirements for pre-hire screening, reasonable suspicion and after accidents, as well as annual random tests. DriverFacts announced it released its Drug & Alcohol Assistant program to make that process “trackable and more efficient while keeping accuracy a priority.”

“DriverFacts’ Drug & Alcohol Assistant gives our clients real-time results. At any given time, a designated employer representative (DER) can see exactly whether a driver has taken a test, where the sample is or if there are any issues,” said Dave Widly, president and CEO of DriverFacts. “It gives carriers more control over the process, allows them to store information in one place, and makes it easy to access anything in the system instead of having to pull files by hand.”

According to the company, the program features automatic random list generation, MIS report processing, collection tracking and up-to-date documentation. “It allows carriers to continue using their preferred collectors and testing sites and simplify the process with built-in security to allow for different levels of information access,” the company said. “The Drug & Alcohol Assistant also monitors the information in the background constantly so it can indicate whether there might be a lab mistake or if there are any issues to address.”

“We thought our old system worked well, but compared to DriverFacts, it was totally archaic,” said Renee Hanes, DER for Swift Transportation, a client of DriverFacts that processes close to 50,000 records per year. “The program is custom to what we need as a transportation company, what’s going to keep us compliant and what’s going to make the process run smoothly.”
