Benefits of DOT Drug Testing

When working in any field of work that might concern the wellbeing of employees, customers, or bystanders, it is important to work with the best professionals in the business. Occupational Drug Testing offers a number of services and works within many fields, including DOT drug and alcohol testing.

What is DOT drug testing? As described by the Department of Transportation (DOT), this drug and alcohol testing is often completed in safety-sensitive jobs where the protection of the public, co-workers, and the individual can be at risk if conducted incorrectly. These fields include aviation, commercial motor carriers, maritime, pipeline, railroad, and transit positions.

Tests for five classes of drugs. Marijuana/THC, cocaine metabolites, amphetamines, opiates, and phencyclidine testing means you can rest well knowing all major drug abuses that greatly impair the human body are being analyzed.

Test during essential times. DOT employees are often tested during pre-employment, reasonable suspicion or cause, at random, post-accident, return-to-duty, and/or as a follow-up. Testing during these times means ensuring risky employees will not be hired or dealt with accordingly through termination and/or treatment programs.

Reviewed by a Medical Review Officer (MRO). Working with an MRO means your employees test results will be completed under strict guidelines and regulations. These professionals are able to provide the most accurate results possible.

Offers assistance from a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). Failing a DOT drug or alcohol test can cause trying times for any employee, and one of the services DOT drug testing offers are contact information for a SAP evaluation. Completing education, counseling, or treatment options through a SAP can aid you in returning to the DOT employment field, or your previous job if your employer permits.
