Delegate Your DOT Part 40
(drug testing) Compliance to
Health Enhancement

A Good Idea – Here’s Why

  • We have experience – Health Enhancement Center (HEC) has been managing DOT Part 40 compliance for over 27 years
  • We have a proven record – HEC has had one client fined in 27 years. We manage DOT Part 40 compliance for over 700 companies in 28 states
  • We cut costs and can prove it. HEC will conduct a no cost, Cost Benefit Analysis that will document your savings
  • We have incentive. HEC can be fined by the DOT if we fail to manage your compliance and we have a near perfect track record to protect
  • You and your staff have better things to do
  • Never pay another DOT fine. If you are fined, we pay the fine
  • And frankly, managing DOT Part 40 compliance is just a stressful hassle. One of those “Life Is Too Short” things that should be delegated

Templates – New Templates for Compliance Management Clients

HEALTH ENHANCEMENT (HEC) NOW PROVIDES ITS COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT CLIENTS WITH NEW OPTIONS TO REPORT VARIOUS WORKPLACE INCIDENTS TO THE DOT – ESPECIALLY CRITICAL WHEN  AUDITED.

IN ADDITION, THESE SAME TOOLS CAN BE USED TO DOCUMENT AN EMPLOYER’S “COMPLIANCE” WITH IT’S OWN POLICY AND PROCEDURES THEREBY SIGNIFICANTLY LIMITING THE PROBABILITY OF BEING ON THE LOOSING END OF A LAWSUIT.

AN EMPLOYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR APPROXIMATELY 34 TASKS TO EFFECT DOT PART 40 COMPLIANCE AND NEARLY THE SAME TO COMPLY WITH THEIR OWN COMPANY POLICY. HEC PROVIDES THE FORMS NECESSARY TO DOCUMENT BOTH DOT AND EMPLOYER POLICY COMPLIANCE.

COMPLIANCE FORMS ARE CONVENIENTLY AVAILABLE TO THE EMPLOYEE/USER ON EMPLOYEE CELL PHONES AND TABLETS, AND ON EMPLOYER OFFICE COMPUTERS. SINCE ACCURACY AND TIMING ARE CRITICAL, INCIDENT DETAILS CAN EASILY BE CAPTURED WHERE AND WHEN THINGS HAPPEN.

CONTACT JIM PROCTOR AT 410-822-8690 OR REPLY TO THIS EMAIL FOR MORE INFORMATION.
