Keller offers DOT medical exam handbook

J J Keller & Associates Inc announces its latest publication: DOT Medical Exams: The Complete Guide. This compact handbook helps transportation managers understand the driver medical qualification and examination process.

This resource compiles essential medical information in one place. It includes practical insights, clear examples, and best practices that ensure the exam form is filled out correctly. It also lists which drugs, conditions, and illnesses disqualify drivers from operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).

“As the population ages and the DOT tightens its medical qualification standards, drivers and safety directors are looking for quick answers they can understand and trust,” said Daren Hansen, Keller’s senior transportation safety editor. “Whether the issue is a medical condition like sleep apnea or diabetes or a specific drug like marijuana or even cough syrup, this new handbook is a unique solution for helping determine if a driver should be on the road.”

DOT Medical Exams: The Complete Guide makes it easy for transportation managers to communicate with their drivers and medical examiners. It is written in plain English for fast, easy-to-understand reference and offers straightforward explanations of the exam’s elements, the certification process, and the standards that apply.

The guide helps managers find medical examiners who comply with DOT standards. It also helps them review and understand the medical exam long form and certificate (or wallet card). It defines the motor carrier’s, driver’s and examiner’s roles in the process.
