Houston TX DOT Compliance Mock Audit
Ever wonder what a DOT Audit feels like? Does thinking about it fill you with dread?
Even if you have been through a DOT New Entrant Audit, the latest DOT ‘Interventions’ are a different ball game.
Your current DOT scores could be flagging you as the DOT’s next target. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what to expect if they come?
Our senior safety consultant, Mike England (read his bio below) has experienced ‘both sides of the coin’; not only does he have over 25 years of transportation safety management experience, but he is also a trained DOT Safety Investigator. During a DOT Mock Audit from DOT Compliance Help, Inc., you can find out what is wrong and get help fixing it before the DOT comes.
Even if your DOT scores are not at an alert level, your road to DOT Compliance can start with a Mock Audit. You know what they say about ‘an ounce of prevention…’
Mike skillfully audits driver qualification files, hours of service paperwork, driver logs, insurance papers, your daily business practices, vehicle maintenance files, DOT drug and alcohol programs, all while working with your team to ensure they understand how to move forward after the DOT Mock Audit.
You also receive an action report after the DOT Mock Audit is complete. We call it your ‘Roadmap to Compliance’. Like any good roadmap, this report prioritizes your areas of improvement for you and gives you ‘route suggestions’ to get going in an organized, efficient plan. The ‘Roadmap to Compliance’ report takes hard work, skill, expertise, and more to create – and you get all that through DOT Compliance Help, Inc.
Houston TX Onsite DOT Compliance Training
DOT Compliance Help, Inc. is a privately owned, full-service consulting firm specializing in the interpretation and execution of the regulations and guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Our mission is to assist our clients in establishing proper safety management controls to minimize collisions, injuries, and fatalities. The result is safer roadways for the public and increased profits for our clients.
DOT Compliance Help, Inc. knows how important convenience is for the transportation industry. Onsite training removes the hassles of traveling by coming to a location you specify. In addition to working with you at ‘home base’, we will also customize the materials and information for the training to make sure it meets your specific needs and requests. We can train on multiple subjects of your choosing, including but not limited to: training on the two mandatory topics (see left), a 2-hour DOT Compliance Overview, concentrating on your company policies and procedures, and\or concentrating on HAZMAT.
Houston is the headquarters for oil exploration and a boom town, and it is no surprise we often get a good turnout there for DOT Compliance training. Of all the places we have visited in the US, since we started our business in 2007, Houston has been our biggest market area. We enjoy the opportunity to assist people in the construction industry as well as oilfield services when we are in Houston, whether they have problems understanding how the oilfield exemptions apply to them, or the general nature of FMCSA safety regulations regarding hours of service, driver qualification, drug & alcohol testing, maintenance and other areas.
We have had the chance to help people who grow flowers, delivery fuel oil, manufacture concrete masonry units, mine for specialized aggregates, and delivery specialized equipment as far away as Louisiana and Montana. Not to mention my personal favorite, cattle production.
We generally find ourselves here at least 3 – 4 times per year, to provide DOT training workshops, to perform “Mock audits”, and to delivery customized driver training, sometimes right in Houston and sometimes as far away as Longview, Kingsville, Yoakum or wherever we are needed. We enjoy the chance to help people, regardless of industry, to develop safety management controls to ensure compliance with the FMCSRs.
