Controlled Substances Testing and Alcohol Testing Programs
Under the rules promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier
Safety Administration ("FMCSA"), Department of Transportation ("DOT"), employers are required to implement both alcohol testing and controlled substances testing of individuals who possess a commercial class driver license and who
perform safety-sensitive functions. CSATF acts as a consortium for the purpose of random alcohol testing and random controlled substances testing for individuals whose names appear on the Industry Experience Roster for the Studio Transportation Drivers, Local #399, and who meet the criteria outlined above. CSATF also schedules return-to-duty testing and follow-up testing as necessary. (Post-accident, reasonable suspicion testing and testing of local hires at distant location are the responsibility of individual employers.)
