American Background Information Services launched a comprehensive Department of Transportation suite of employee screening services for clients in the transportation sector.

ABI's DOT solutions focus on trucking and other industries subject to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. These regulations include DOT-mandated drug and alcohol testing programs; evaluation of driver qualifications; and eligibility to perform safety-sensitive duties.

ABI's DOT-compliant services include:

-- Commercial Drivers' License Information System (CDLIS) search
-- Motor Vehicle Record searches (pre-employment & annual)
-- Previous Employment & Safety Performance History Verification
-- Drug & Alcohol Testing History Verification
-- Breath Alcohol Screening, including random selection
-- Urine Drug Screening, including random selection

ABI is also offering DOT Risk Scoring services. Risk Scoring allows the employer to evaluate the screening elements that could potentially disqualify an applicant or employee from operating a commercial motor vehicle or performing other safety-sensitive duties. As a result, clients are able to prioritize and manage their responsibilities efficiently to ensure compliance with DOT requirements.
