Norton Medical has been assisting motor carriers with all issues of the drug and alcohol program since 1989. If you operate vehicles weighing more than 26000 pounds or carry more than 16 people including the driver or your vehicles carry a hazardous placard you are required to be in a random testing program.
The program has been very successful. The rate of fatal accidents has fallen more than 80 percent since drug testing became federal law in 1989.
The rates have been falling consistently until 2012 with the introduction of medical marijuana.
We have the experience and software to make your program easy to meet federal standards.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, FMCSA random drug tests for truck drivers who operate vehicles over 26,001 pounds as well as vehicles that transport hazardous materials and drivers of buses carrying more than 16 passengers, including the driver.
