IT'S THE LAW
All FTA-covered employers are required to be in compliance with the DOT procedures for drug and alcohol testing (49 CFR part 40) and the FTA regulations on the prevention of alcohol misuse and prohibited drug use (49 CFR part 655). These requirements are unaffected by the size of the transit agency, the number of vehicles in the fleet, or the number of employees. All covered employers who perform FTA safety-sensitive duties must be in compliance prior to conducting these duties.
UPIC Labs can assist transit employers in developing and implementing compliant drug and alcohol testing programs for their employees based on FTA and DOT rules.
We can explain the elements of a compliant program and provide a DOT compliance manual with documents, checklists, forms, and procedures that can be used to guide your system managers in formulating and maintaining required programs.
