Do you have employees who fall under the Department of Transportation regulations? If so, they must be in compliance with the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program—and that means random tests, per the federal guidelines.
Conspire! DOT consortium is here to help.
What is a DOT Consortium?
Why use a consortium for DOT drug and alcohol testing? When you enroll your employees in our DOT consortium with other companies who fall under the same mode of transportation, you’ll diversify the odds of your employees being randomly tested.
Under the Department of Transportation, there are six modes for employees covered under DOT testing regulation. If your employees fall under one of the following modes, DOT drug and alcohol testing consortium is a great option:
- FMCSA – Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
- FTA – Federal Transportation Administration
- PHMSA – Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration
- FRA – Federal Railroad Administration
- FAA – Federal Aviation Administration
- USCG – United States Coast Guard
DOT Panel 5 Urine Test
As an employer, you must remain compliant with the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations. Conspire uses the comprehensive DOT 5 panel urine test for random testing of your employees, which tests for the below five “parent drugs”:
- Marijuana (THC)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
