What Is DOT Testing?
DOT Testing is a drug test regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to ensure that employees that drive and operate large commercial vehicles, or are designated as “safety-sensitive,” are not risking the safety of the public by working while under the influence.
Safety-sensitive positions include:
- Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders who operate Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs)
- Vehicles that carry 16 passengers or more
- Vehicles that transport hazardous materials
- Flight crews, including pilots, attendants, dispatchers, and security coordinators
- U.S. Coast Guard crew members that operate commercial vessels
- Federal Railroad Administration, engine and train workers, signal service workers, and dispatchers
- And more
The DOT Testing Services We Provide
We provide a wide variety of DOT Testing services for Commercial Driver's License holders and their employers.
The FMCSA recommends random testing for drugs and alcohol as a way to deter the abuse of drugs and alcohol in the workplace. Each agency under the Department of Transportation has its own regulations for how often random tests must be implemented. Our team can provide a smooth testing experience to minimize disruption to workflow.
The Department of Transportation requires post-accident testing for a variety of circumstances involving a motor accident. Circumstances where DOT post accident drug testing is required in Boston include:
- When towing is needed for a vehicle involved in the accident
- When there is a moving violation cited
- When medical treatment is required as a result of the accident
- When the accident involves a fatality
The drug and alcohol testing must be conducted within a certain period of time after the accident to ensure accurate results.
Return to Duty Testing
We can provide return-to-duty drug and alcohol tests for employees who have formerly received positive test results or who have violated substance rules of some kind. After the individual has completed their education and treatment program, we can provide the RTD test so that they can return to work if they receive a negative result.
Follow-Up Testing After Reinstatement
Based on the recommendations of the substance abuse professional, our team can help provide however many unannounced tests are required or recommended in the months subsequent to reinstatement. The follow-up testing period generally lasts from 12 months to 5 years.
