Jeff Simon, a senior compliance consultant at Optima, says the company's DOT Compliance Challenge is a way to reward companies that are in compliance with the regulations.
"The companies that consistently do things right and that play by the rules can really benefit from this program. This is a way for them to get, at a nominal, expenses-only cost, an objective, outside review from a qualified DOT consultant to ensure that they're in full compliance," he says.
Simon explains that the program is designed to assist both for-hire carriers and private fleets. "This program is intended for carriers and fleets that are new to Optima and that are interested in receiving a systematic, professional review of their DOT compliance efforts from an outside consultant."
Simon notes that Optima's transportation consultants have conducted simulated DOT audits for hundreds of clients. "Our five DOT consultants each have at least 30 years of experience working in all aspects of the transportation business."
According to Simon, the launching of this program is especially timely considering the ongoing trend in aggressive enforcement taken by the DOT. "In recent years there has been a shift from education to enforcement. The DOT's stance is that carriers are responsible for knowing the regulations. Ignorance is no excuse. Carriers who are found in violation of the regulations will be fined, and the fines can quickly run into the thousands of dollars."
Simon maintains that full compliance is absolutely essential. "In the long run, it saves many times more than it costs, especially when considering the possibility of a lawsuit over an accident or incident caused by being out of compliance."
Simon adds that the DOT's database publicizes a motor carrier's safety rating and evaluation, and these scores are available to customers, insurance carriers, financial institutions, lawyers and the general public.

Jeff Simon, a senior consultant at Optima, says the company's seminar series addresses critical industry needs. "The Federal Department of Transportation has recently issued additional regulations on maintaining logs books and time records. This seminar will help attendees understand these new requirements, which can be difficult and complicated for those who are not familiar with this area," he says. Simon adds that the DOT has mandatory training requirements for alcohol and drug testing, which directly affect individuals who supervise drivers. "Our seminar on this topic will be helpful because the DOT tends to be extremely particular about compliance with its alcohol and drug testing procedures," he says.

According to Simon, one of the greatest challenges that companies have after hiring a driver is finding the time for continuing training and skills development. "With our defensive driving training, we're able to help clients with this challenge by holding sessions in a short period of time to minimize disruption with driver work schedules," he says.
