At DISA, we work to provide employment screening services that meet industry-specific requirements and compliance standards. Our goal is always to help you make well-informed staffing decisions, so we tailor each custom package to meet requirements while enhancing your employee screening process.
What DOT Requires
When setting up an employee screening process within the transportation industry, we begin by accounting for the Department’s numerous mandatory compliance requirements. DISA takes pride in being an industry expert, so we’re better able to assist you in executing the proper procedures and specifications to keep your company compliant.
The transportation industry requires that prospective employees must provide the following when undergoing employment screening:
What DISA Recommends in Addition to the Industry Requirements
Not only does DISA meet and complete these requirements and rules, but the additional options we provide in a streamlined package will help you secure a safe hire.
Pre-Employment Background Screening
While there are background screening requirements set forth within the DOT mandates, their goal is to ensure that an employee has the credentials and the ability to perform their job duties safely. However, this focus does not consider other types of dangers and liabilities that an employee can pose. Utilizing DISA’s broader scope of services provides employers with a more comprehensive picture of each potential employee’s liabilities.
Pre-employment screening package example
Pre-Employment Hair Test
This is the most stringent drug testing methodology available, and it is the best way to ensure that you don’t employ a person who is abusing drugs. While most urine testing covers a time window of five to 30 days, the hair test covers a window from five to 90 days. Covering this longer window prevents a drug user from just “cleaning up” for a few weeks to pass a pre-employment urine test. Other added benefits of hair testing include the reduced chances an adulterant can be used to mask drug use, and eliminating other issues involved with collecting a urine sample. DISA partners with Psychemedics, the leading hair testing laboratory in the U.S.
