Seminars and e-Training

Additional Services No Comments

MedDirect hosts and/or conducts education and training seminars to help our customers (and non-customers) to better comply withfederally regulated drug testing programs.

MedDirect conducts Specimen Collection Training which complies with the new federal guidelines for collector certification. Our DOT Collector Training includes the five mandatory mock-collections, therefore, qualifying the students for collections immediately following training. Train-the-Trainer for collections is also available through our office and provides the students with the ability to train other collectors within their company.

 

 

 

We offer online training for the DOT mandatory Supervisory Detection Training: DecisionPoint is a fully interactive, self-administered online training that specifically instructs supervisors to identify, document, and address employee performance issues that could be an indication of drug or alcohol related problems. It presents the supervisor with key management skills that can help employees modify their behavior in order for them to be more productive employees.

please call 877-866-2161

Regulations Consultation

Additional Services No Comments

MedDirect was originally created to help companies comply with, but not limited to, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation Parts 40 and 382.

Much of our federal regulations telephone consultation is a “value-added” feature of our services at no charge to our customers.

As of August 1, 2001 the Department of Transportation re-write of 49 CFR 40, Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs was fully implemented. Many companies are unclear about certain interpretations and new procedures within the regulations. This is where we come to the aid of our customers. Not only motor carriers, but specimen collections, Medical Review Officers, Third Party Administrators, Alcohol Testers and even the drug testing laboratory face a new era of compliance.

MedDirect can ease your uncertainty and help guide you through the process.

CSA

Uncategorized No Comments

With Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), together with State Partners and industry, is working to further reduce commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes, fatalities, and injuries on our nation’s highways.

CSA Scope

CSA introduces a new enforcement and compliance model that allows FMCSA and its State Partners to more efficiently contact a larger number of carriers to address safety problems before crashes occur. Rolled out in December 2010, the program establishes a new nationwide system for making the roads safer for motor carriers and the public alike.

Within the CSA Operational Model, the Safety Measurement System (SMS) quantifies the on-road safety performance of carriers and drivers to identify candidates for interventions, determine the specific safety problems  a carrier or driver exhibits, and to monitor whether safety problems are improving or worsening. SMS has replaced SafeStat in the new Operational Model and uses a motor carrier’s data from roadside inspections, including all safety-based violations, state-reported crashes, and the federal motor carrier census to quantify performance in the following Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs):

The CSA BASICs

  • Unsafe Driving — Operation of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) by drivers in a dangerous or careless manner. Example violations: Speeding, reckless driving, improper lane change, and inattention. (FMCSR Parts  392 and 397 )
  • Fatigued Driving (Hours-of-Service) — Operation of CMVs by drivers who are ill, fatigued, or in non-compliance with the Hours-of-Service (HOS) regulations. This BASIC includes violations of regulations pertaining to logbooks as they relate to HOS requirements and the management of CMV driver fatigue. Example violations: Exceeding HOS, maintaining an incomplete or inaccurate logbook, and operating a CMV while ill or fatigued. (FMCSR Parts 392 and 395 )
  • Driver Fitness— Operation of CMVs by drivers who are unfit to operate a CMV due to lack of training, experience, or medical qualifications. Example violations: Failure to have a valid and appropriate commercial driver’s license (CDL) and being medically unqualified to operate a CMV. (FMCSR Parts 383 and 391 )
  • Controlled Substances/Alcohol — Operation of CMVs by drivers who are impaired due to alcohol, illegal drugs, and misuse of prescription or over-the-counter medications. Example violations: Use or possession of controlled substances/alcohol. (FMCSR Parts 382 and 392)
  • Vehicle Maintenance — Failure to properly maintain a CMV. Example violations: Brakes, lights, and other mechanical defects, and failure to make required repairs. (FMCSR Parts 393 and 396)
  • Cargo-Related — Failure to properly prevent shifting loads, spilled or dropped cargo, overloading, and unsafe handling of hazardous materials on a CMV. Example violations: Improper load securement, cargo retention, and hazardous material handling. (FMCSR Parts 392, 393, 397 and HM Violations)
  • Crash Indicator— Histories or patterns of high crash involvement, including frequency and severity. It is based on information from State-reported crashes.

 

Each BASIC Measurements Depends on the Following:

  • The number of adverse safety events (violations related to that BASIC or crashes)
  • The severity of violations or crashes
  • When the adverse safety events occurred (more recent events are weighted more heavily).

After a measurement is determined, the carrier is then placed in a peer group (e.g., other carriers with similar numbers of inspections). Percentiles from 0 to 100 are then determined by comparing the BASIC measurements of the carrier to the measurements of other carriers in the peer group. A percentile 100 indicates the worst performance.

Hair Testing

Lab & D.O.T. Testing No Comments

Hair testing is one of the most accurate and effective methods of finding drug abusers in the workplace.  With a much longer window of detection than urinalysis, and nearly impossible to substitute or adulterate, hair testing has quickly become a necessity for employers to incorporate into their drug and alcohol testing programs, particularly for pre-employment.

Compared to the more traditional forms drug testing, such as urinalysis, with a 2-3 day window of detection, a hair sample can detect a much longer period of drug use.  Each ½ inch of head hair provides a 30 day history of detection.  The standard test length (1.5 inches) allows for a 90 day window.  If no head hair is available, body hair from the chest, under arms and legs may be used.

By using a small sample cut at the scalp, the laboratory test measures the drug molecules embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminating external contamination as a source of a positive test result.  Any sample screened as potentially positive is confirmed using state of the art technology.  The collection process is quick and safe (no handling of body fluids), and the test results are legally defensible and admissible in court cases.

Hair follicle testing detects the following drugs of abuse:  Amphetamine/Methamphetamine/Ecstasy, Cocaine/Cocaine metabolites, Opiates (Codeine, Morphine, Heroin metabolite, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, and Oxycodone), Phencyclidine (PCP) and Marijuana.

Recent studies have revealed hair testing is the most effective method for pre-employment “safety sensitive” positions

♦ DOT Transportation:  Over 2 times higher positive rate combined with significantly lower post accident and random positive rates
♦ Manufacturing:  Over 5 times higher positive rate
♦ Drilling / Energy:  Over 6 times higher positive rate
