The U.S Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that all DOT regulated “safety sensitive” employees have on file a negative DOT pre-employment drug test result and be a member of a DOT approved random selection consortium. In addition, if a DOT regulated company has more than one “safety sensitive” employee, the employer must also have a written DOT drug and alcohol policy and an on-site supervisor must have completed supervisor training for reasonable suspicion of illegal drug use or impairment.
To be compliant with DOT regulations, a company’s DOT drug and alcohol testing program must have the following components.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has specific drug and alcohol testing requirements for the following governmental agencies and DOT Drug Testing USA provides all testing services
|Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
|United States Coast Guard (USCG)
|Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
|Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)
|Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
|Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
DOT regulated companies with multiple safety sensitive employees must also have an employee within the company who is assigned as the “designated employer representative” (DER). This is the person responsible for removing any DOT “safety sensitive” employee who is covered by 49 CFR Part 40 from performing a DOT safety sensitive position when a positive drug or alcohol test result has occurred or an employee has refused to take a required DOT test.
If you have recently become a DOT regulated company, within the next 18 months the Department of Transportation (DOT) will conduct a “new entrant” inspection to ensure that you are in compliance with all DOT regulations including the drug and alcohol testing requirements. If you are currently a DOT regulated company you are subject to regular inspections to ensure compliance.
DOT Regulated employers may conduct additional drug testing separate from the required 5-Panel Urine Drug Test as required by Part 40. As an example, a DOT Regulated employer may have a company policy which requires a 10-Panel Drug Test, however, the DOT 5-Panel Test still is required in accordance with Part 40 and must be conducted separate from any other internal company drug policy requirements. Below is certain information regarding DOT Regulated companies and Non-DOT drug testing.
§ 40.13 How do DOT drug and alcohol tests relate to non-DOT tests? (a) DOT tests must be completely separate from non-DOT tests in all respects. (b) DOT tests must take priority and must be conducted and completed before a non-DOT test is begun. For example, you must discard any excess urine left over from a DOT test and collect a separate void for the subsequent nonDOT test. (c) Except as provided in paragraph (d) of this section, you must not perform any tests on DOT urine or breath specimens other than those specifically authorized by this part or DOT agency regulations. For example, you may not test a DOT urine specimen for additional drugs, and a laboratory is prohibited from making a DOT urine specimen available for a DNA test or other types of specimen identity testing. (d) The single exception to paragraph (c) of this section is when a DOT drug test collection is conducted as part of a physical examination required by DOT agency regulations. It is permissible to conduct required medical tests related to this physical examination (e.g., for glucose) on any urine remaining in the collection container after the drug test urine specimens have been sealed into the specimen bottles. (e) No one is permitted to change or disregard the results of DOT tests based on the results of non-DOT tests. For example, as an employer you must not disregard a verified positive DOT drug test result because the employee presents a negative test result from a blood or urine specimen collected by the employee’s physician or a DNA test result purporting to question the identity of the DOT specimen. (f) As an employer, you must not use the CCF or the ATF in your non-DOT drug and alcohol testing programs. This prohibition includes the use of the DOT forms with references to DOT programs and agencies crossed out. You also must always use the CCF and ATF for all your DOT-mandated drug and alcohol tests.
