North Lamar Chiropractic- Your Austin Chiropractor & Drug Testing Center
If you are required to submit to DOT drug testing, this information needs to be submitted annually on a MIS data collection form. If you have never heard of that term, you may be wondering what that is. Here are a few of the questions you may have about the Department of Transportation, or DOT, MIS forms and Austin drug testing.
What Are MIS Forms?
A MIS form is the form that your alcohol and drug testing results are reported on. The form is then sent to the Department of Transportation for annual review to ensure you can maintain any licenses you have with them. If you submit a drug test on any other form, it will be kicked back and you can be penalized if you miss your annual deadline to turn in results. The DOT wants all drug testing results to be submitted on this form for uniformity.
Why Are These Forms Important for Safety Standard?
The DOT oversees all individuals who operate a form of transportation within the public. This may include train drivers, bus drivers and truck drivers. Ensuring that the drivers are drug-free helps to decrease the likelihood of the driver being impaired and causing an accident. As such, annual drug testing helps to oversee that drivers are clean. The form is used for uniformity, to ensureall operators are given the same tests and held to the same standards?
Where Can You Go to Have MIS Forms Filled Out?
Not every drug testing facility will fill out MIS forms. You need to find one that expressly states that they offer DOT compliance drug testing and will fill out MIS forms.
