U.S. DOT Pre-Employment Drug Test
Any company that is defined as a “Safety-Sensitive” means that the field will directly influence the safety of the public as well as themselves. If your job follows these guidelines, you are working in a U.S. DOT-Regulated environment and will require Drug and Alcohol testing for you to be U.S. DOT Compliant.
Here is a list of departments that would fall into this category of being Safety-Sensitive
- Federal Aviation Administration (FAA): Flight crews, flight attendants, aircraft dispatchers, ground security coordinators, etc.
- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA): Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders who operate Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs), vehicles that carry 16 passengers or more (including the driver), or vehicles that transport hazardous materials and are required to display a DOT placard.
- U.S. Coast Guard: Crew members operating a commercial vessel.
- Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration: Operations, maintenance, and emergency response workers.
- Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Hours of Service Act personnel, engine & train workers, signal service workers, or train dispatchers.
