The life of a commercial vehicle driver is one of responsibility. From carrying passengers to transporting goods, you play a major role in creating a successful and safe society. As such, ensuring that commercial vehicle drivers, semi-truck drivers and CDL (commercial driving license) holders are healthy is essential.
Several health concerns can impact your ability to drive safely for long hours. Heart problems, diabetes, fatigue and other medical conditions can cause a lapse of reason or blackouts while behind the wheel. As the stewards of some of the largest vehicles on our nation’s roads, you are therefore required to meet a higher standard when it comes to duty of care.
Who Needs the DOT Physical Exam?
The three groups that require a Department of Transportation (DOT) exam include commercial vehicle drivers, CDL holders and semi-truck drivers. These professionals work in a large range of industries, transporting people and goods across the country.
In order to reduce incidents of accidents on our roads, DOT physicals are periodically necessary. This process is designed to detect any relevant health problems. However, assurances are also provided to drivers, businesses and the general public that commercial drivers are fit to perform their roles safely.
