The Department of Transportation, under rule 49 CFR 390.5, has required employers with CDL cardholders under their employ to comply with physical examinations and drug and alcohol testing (49CFR382). These regulations are comprehensive and include strict detail for compliance. Workplace Connection stands ready to assist you in complying with this regulation in the following ways:
• We have seven conveniently located Valley Medical Group offices throughout Bergen, Passaic and Morris counties that offer DOT physicals, examinations and drug testing. Any of our centers can provide these services. Click here for the locations.
