DER (DESIGNATED EMPLOYER
New to the trucking industry? Maybe you have hired a new DER, but they have never acted in this position, and do not know the DOT regulations; Or, maybe they need a refresher since the DOT regulations change often. Twin Tiers Drug & Alcohol Testing, LLC will train your DER to be ready for any situation that may arise. This is also very beneficial when you have multiple DERs and want to make sure there is continuity company wide.
A DER is crucial to every DOT Drug & Alcohol Testing Program. If you are an employer of DOT safety sensitive employees, then you must have a DER. The main duties of a DER include: being the individual designated by the company to receive results of drug and alcohol testing, having the authority to stand down, or remove, employees who have violated the DOT drug & alcohol testing regulations, and what actions and decisions to make in such cases.
