Nationwide DOT Drug & Alcohol Testing Consortium For All Modes Of Transportation
Drug & Alcohol Testing Program for Federal DOT Compliance
In order to remain DOT-compliant by federal standards, businesses and other entities that fall under the safety-sensitive umbrella must conduct proper drug and alcohol testing, including random testing, for-cause testing, post-accident testing, and more. Our certified collectors are fully trained in proper federal DOT testing protocol, including the use of the breathalyzer testing procedures.
We use the federally approved Portable Breath Alcohol Testing Equipment and provide you with the three-part Breath Alcohol Testing form for the Department of Transportation (DOT). Our team takes the greatest care in regard to sample isolation and avoiding contamination so that you can rest assured that the results of your test are accurate and reliable. Most of all, we strive to make your federal DOT testing services as quick, comfortable, and cost-efficient as possible.
WHO IS REQUIRED TO UNDERGO FEDERAL DOT TESTING?
Federal DOT drug and alcohol testing is mandatory for all workers that fall under the six safety-sensitive agencies outlined by DOT.
These agencies include:
Motor Carrier (FMCSA) – CDL Licensed Drivers
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – Safety-Sensitive Functions as defined by 14 CFR Part 120.105
Federal Transit Administration (FTA) – Mass Transit Safety Covered Employees as defined by 49 CFR Part 655.4
Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) – Covered Service and Maintenance of Way.
United States Coast Guard (USCG) – Operations of Commercial Vessels
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) – Operations, Maintenance, or Emergency-response functions performed on a pipeline or on an LNG facility
Others subject to federal DOT testing include employees of private companies, governments, and other organizations that hold a commercial driver's license (CDL) or conduct transportation services during the scope of their work. This can include for-hire motor carriers, private motor carriers, owners and/or leasers of commercial vehicles, churches, civic organizations, or anyone that operates a commercial vehicle.
WHEN IS FEDERAL DOT TESTING NEEDED?
Federal DOT drug and alcohol testing is required under a number of different circumstances, including after an accident involving one of your employees (post-accident), when you have reason to suspect an employee is misusing drugs or alcohol (reasonable suspicion), or when an employee returns to work after failing a DOT drug or alcohol test (return-to-duty/follow-up testing). Most employers must also conduct random federal DOT drug and alcohol testing as well.
