New DOT Video Counters Those Trying to 'Beat' Their Drug Test

The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines, and other transportation industries. To help collectors and collection site managers ensure that transportation employees do not have an opportunity to alter or adulterate their specimens, DOT's Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance is now offering a training video called "DOT's 10 Steps to Collection Site Security and Integrity." The video focuses on the essential elements that make collections suitable for DOT testing, showing how to follow agency procedures and limit the chances of those trying to "beat" the system.

"By complying with these 10 steps, collection site personnel will communicate to employees and employers that their collection site is following DOT procedures for ensuring collection site security," ODAPC says. The video is viewable and downloadable at www.dot.gov/ost/dapc/. An accompanying poster also is available, and a PDF version of that is viewable at the site as well.
