New requirements for DOT Medical Examiners established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) go into effect on May 21, 2014. AccessMD Urgent Care is in full compliance with the new requirements, helping to keep Ohio’s $5.2 billion trucking industry on the road.
As part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to promote the safety of America’s roadways, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has introduced new requirements for doctors that perform physical examinations on interstate commercial drivers. More than 250,000 people in Ohio are employed in trucking-related occupations at private and for-hire motor carriers.
Medical examiners who have completed the training and successfully passed the test are included in an online directory on the National Registry website, making it easier for drivers to locate qualified medical providers for their required periodic medical exams and drug screens.
AccessMD has made an aggressive effort to bring all 20 of its locations into compliance, and has FMCSA-certified medical providers in every location. We provide DOT physicals with no appointment needed, 7 days a week.
“We are very happy to be able to provide FMCSA-certified medical examiners to CMV drivers across the state. The safety of Ohio’s drivers is important to us, and we are proud of our ability to help ensure that safety through industry-leading medical exams and injury care.
DOT certified providers at each site can be located at Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website, or at www.accessmdurgentcares.com.
