Driver Training

Driver Training

Our drivers receive quarterly training to ensure specimen integrity, biohazard control, safety with pharmaceuticals/controlled substances, and accordance with the latest HIPPA/patient confidentiality guidelines. All our drivers are required to pass criminal background checks, are subject to routine drug testing, and are outfitted with uniforms and photo IDs. We perform ongoing vehicle inspections on all vehicles pursuant to CFR, Title 49 §§391.11(b)(2) and 383.133(c)(5).

Drivers receive initial and quarterly training on special handling, blood-borne pathogens, HIPAA/patient confidentiality laws, chain of custody procedures and protocols for C2/controlled substances, OSHA, DOT, IATA, driver safety, and customer service. Our driver training is supplemented with Video Training Tutorials, as well as “SmartBooks” that explicitly outline route sheets and protocols for handling routine and uncommon situations.
