InfoMart’s pre-employment screening program was designed in accordance with DOT, FAA, and FMCSA regulations. It provides a sense of security for human resources, safety, and compliance departments. No matter what your company’s needs are, InfoMart offers service that moves at the speed of your business.
The transportation industry has two important goals: delivering goods from place to place in an efficient manner and keeping the public safe while transporting these goods. To achieve these goals, trucking and distribution companies need to employ responsible and reliable drivers.
Companies that hire drivers with criminal backgrounds or a history of substance abuse are at a higher risk of liability for negligence, regulatory sanctions, and the loss of goods. Pre-employment screening and drug tests can reduce these risks.
A significant number of drivers fail unannounced random drug tests. This jeopardizes public and employee safety, increases personnel costs, and delays shipments of goods to customers. Issuing random drug tests to employees mitigates these issues, deters employee drug use, and enables transportation companies to remain in compliance with federal laws.
InfoMart allows trucking and transportation companies nationwide to implement comprehensive, DOT-compliant background screening programs for drivers and other personnel.
Our pre-employment background checks include a National Social Security Search of the applicant’s name to capture potential aliases and to ensure all possible variations are covered. Additionally, we conduct a thorough criminal record search in multiple states where an applicant may have resided, worked, or attended school. InfoMart also searches federal records to see if the applicant has any history of offenses adjudicated in the federal court system.
Our robust approach to background screening also includes verifying drivers’ previous employment and education. This ensures that drivers with gaps in their resume or drivers claiming to hold certain licenses or certification are properly vetted.
Motor Vehicle Reports, Commercial Driver’s License Checks, & DQF
A Motor Vehicle Report details a driver’s current license status, history of driving violations, DUI offenses, and insurability. InfoMart can implement reminders for your company to review MVRs so you stay up-to-date on your drivers’ records.
Additionally, InfoMart offers Driver Monitoring so your businesses won’t have to wait for annual screening results or rely on self-reporting to discover new citations. InfoMart uncovers any invalid or revoked licenses, approaching expirations, or recent DUI/DWI convictions and notifies your company. Our Drive Qualification Files system allows transportation companies to establish, organize, and maintain FMCSA driver documentation along with any company-specific documentation. Our system maintains driver qualification files, warns fleet managers of impending license expirations, and provides support in the event of an audit.
Partnering with InfoMart to implement a thorough background screening program is a sound and efficient way to manage your transportation business.
