DOT Testing Requirements for Alcohol Screening

In addition to strict drug testing requirements, the Department of Transportation also requires employers to perform pre-employment, random, post-accident, or reasonable suspicion alcohol screening on any individual carrying out a “safety-sensitive” role.

ARCpoint Labs nationwide can provide assistance with compliance to ensure your testing meets the DOT’s standards.
