Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug Testing

For those in an industry related to transportation, these employees are and are not limited to, truck drivers, bus and train operators, pipeline workers, airplane pilots and flight attendants. DOT Compliant Drug Testing is required for employees that operate vehicles and/or machinery, in short, because they have the potential risk for harming those around them. DOT Drug Testing ensures the safety of the general public and also helps to remove the threat of a liability for a company.

How Do I Know if I Need a DOT Drug Test?

Any company that has vehicles that carry 16 or more passengers including the driver, operates a vehicle weighing more than 26,001 pounds, or transports hazardous materials will be required to conduct DOT drug testing on all employees. You company will be required to perform pre-employment drug tests, random drug tests, post-accident drug tests, as well as reasonable suspicion drug testing. If the employee does not comply with these terms, they will be terminated from the safety-sensitive position immediately and will be fined for violating the DOT drug and alcohol test requirements.

DOT Compliance Requirements

As per the DOT 49 CFR Part 40 Requirement for Safety-Sensitive Employees, the following are required for a company to be DOT Compliant:

  • Prospective employees must undergo a pre-employment test
  • An employee must have the correct Federal Custody & Control Form (CCF)
  • A Substance Abuse Professional Process
  • Random Pool Testing
  • DOT Supervisor Reasonable Suspicion Training
  • A Written Drug and Alcohol Policy
  • Post-Accident Testing Situations
  • Background Checks
  • Employee Education
  • Removal of Covered Employee
  • Designated Employer Representative

Lastly, any company or operators that do not comply with the guidelines above can face daunting fines and penalties for failure to comply.

What Does a DOT Drug Test Entail?

As for the drugs tested, DOT only requires that the employee is screened for the following substances:

  • Amphetamines including MDMA
  • Marijuana (THC)
  • Opiates, including Heroin, Codeine, and Morphine. Does not include prescription opiates such as hydrocodone and oxycodone.
  • Crack-Cocaine
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)

Generally, this will be a urine drug test, however, the DOT testing rules specify that confirmatory testing is required for any non-negative screens for the drugs listed above plus methamphetamines, ecstasy, and molly.

Obtaining a DOT-Approved Drug and Alcohol Test

In order to obtain a DOT Compliant Drug Test, you have to contact a certified lab like Veritas Labs. If you do not get a drug test from a DOT approved lab, your test will not be accepted by the DOT. The DOT also requires that employees undergo random drug testing so as to be sure that employees do not deviate from the drug-free workplace environment and requires that the company that administers the test is a DOT-approved one. Veritas Labs specializes in DOT compliant drug testing as well as the development and authorizations of said tests. Our team of experts are specially trained in DOT compliance and can offer both mobile/onsite tests as well as a test in one of our many testing centers across the country.

If an employee is removed from the safety-sensitive position, they can be reinstated if, and only if they undergo an evaluation by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), complete a course, counseling or treatment prescribed by the SAP prior to returning. After the employee is approved by the appointed SAP and is reinstated to the safety-sensitive position, they will have to provide a breath and/or urine sample that tests negative for drugs and alcohol. Thereafter, the employee will be subject to at least 6 random pool drug test during the first year of their reinstatement. Then, the Return-to-Duty and Follow-Up drug tests will be conducted under the supervision and counsel of the appointed SAP.
