Substance Abuse Awareness Training, Testing, and Compliance Technical Brief

Anyone designated by US DOT as a safety-sensitive employee is subject to DOT drug and alcohol testing. But what does “safety-sensitive” mean? FTA states that “Operators of revenue service vehicles, CDL-holding operators of nonrevenue service vehicles, vehicle controllers, revenue service vehicle mechanics, firearm-carrying security personnel” all qualify as safety-sensitive, while FMCSA mandates that anyone who holds a CDL and operates a CMV is a safety-sensitive employee.

This technical brief will provide guidance for employers who must train and test safety-sensitive employees for drug and alcohol use and misuse, and prepare employees for what to expect.
