Facing a DOT audit or other review can bring your operation to screeching halt. Even if you do your best to follow the laws, it’s easy to miss something and an audit can be a scary prospect. The most important thing that you can do is to prepare. Ensure that you have all of your paperwork available. Then get it organized and ready to present. Lastly, brief your staff on how to interact with the investigator.
