DOT Drug/Alcohol Testing Developments

Resources for FTA and DOT Regulatory Changes and Guidance

Tuesday, August 28, 2018 19:41

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) offer helpful and timely (and FREE!) materials for ensuring your FTA-mandated drug and alcohol testing policy and program is kept up to date with all regulatory changes and interpretations.

Sign up for the FTA Drug and Alcohol Regulation Updates here. To review past newsletter issues, click here.

Sign up for the DOT Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing email updates here.

Here is just a sampling of what is covered in these updates:

  • Drug and alcohol testing regulatory updates, not only for the FTA and DOT, but also for the DOT’s other agencies: FMCSA, FAA, FRA, PHMSA, and USCG
  • Drug and alcohol conference updates
  • Proper use of testing forms and equipment
  • Record maintenance
  • Audit guidance
  • Contractor oversight
  • Service agent requirements

If your organization needs help with developing its FTA or FMCSA-mandated testing policy, be sure to check out the FTA’s Policy Builder tool.

After 20 years of studying and working with these regulations in the transit industry, I can probably also offer your organization some helpful guidance in this area. 😉
