The Department of Transportation on May 1 filed a 227-page Final Rule that allows oral fluid as an authorized testing method for the presence of unlawful drugs, giving fleets the option to subject drivers to urinalysis or a cheek swab for drug screenings.

Joining Jason and Matt this week on CCJ’s 10-44 is Brandon Wiseman, President of Trucksafe Consulting and partner with the Childress Law firm in Indianapolis, and they discuss what implications the new testing method may have on the number of drivers being snared in the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, how fleets can safely (and legally) implement an oral fluid testing program, and much more.
