DOT Testing

A DOT test is a federally mandated test for those individuals who are  under contract with or under the authority of the Department of Transportation (DOT).  Employees who work in safety sensitive positions must undergo pre-employment drug screening with a minimum of a five panel urine drug test. Some states now require the DOT tests and it may reduce Worker's Comp premiums.  If you are performing tasks on-the-job that are safety-sensitive according to the DOT, such as driving a truck, pilot, doing maintenance on a plane, then you are subject to a DOT drug test. 

Employers of safety-sensitive workplaces can issue  the DOT drug or alcohol testing in the following situations:

  • Pre-employment drug screenings
  • Reasonable suspicion drug testing
  • Random drug testing
  • Post-accident drug testing
  • Return-to-duty drug screens
  • Follow-up drug screening
