Drug Screening Services

Federally regulated drug testing started in 1989 when the Department of Transportation implemented its drug and alcohol testing program for covered workers. When the DOT-regulated drug testing program began, 18% of American truck drivers drug tested positive for cocaine, marijuana or amphetamines. The rate of positive drug tests has since dropped tremendously. In 1998, 5% of pre-employment drug tests came back positive for illicit drugs, and for those employees in random drug testing programs, the positive drug test rate was less than 2%. In the FAA program, the positive drug test rate fell to less than 1%. The federal drug testing program focuses on urine drug testing. A chain of custody form is used to ensure the drug testing process integrity. Urine analysis is first processed with a general drug screening test for the presence of illicit drugs, and if the initial drug test comes back positive, the drug test screen is then re-tested utilizing a more accurate drug test called GC/MS where the sample is vaporized and then bombarded with electrons to create a unique fingerprint of the drug. This drug test is reliable enough to use as evidence in a court of law.

DOT Drug Test

Every branch of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) requires a DOT drug test. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drug tests pilots, flight crews and mechanics as well as testing 145 FBO fixed base operators.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) randomly drug tests truck drivers who operate vehicles over 26,000 pounds as well as drivers of buses carrying more than 16 passengers, including the driver.

Office of Pipeline Safety Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) requires pre-employment and random drug testing of pipeline construction workers. Alcohol testing and drug testing are also performed in instances of cause and after an accident

United States Coast Guard regulations require drug testing of seamen on merchant fleets as well as drug tests for crew of passenger vessels.

Employee Drug Testing

The Department of Transportation requires employee drug testing at the time of hire, at random intervals, after accidents, in instances of probable cause, upon return to duty and in some follow-up cases.
