Service Overview

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. The Department of Transportation (DOT) publishes rules (encompassed in 49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 40) on who must conduct drug and alcohol tests, how to conduct those tests and what procedures to use when testing.

Oschmann Employee Screening Services offers a comprehensive DOT drug & alcohol testing program including policy development, national DOT consortium options and DOT consulting services.

DOT Modes

Drug & Alcohol Consortiums

Oschmann Employee Screening Services provides DOT testing consortium services nationally. We are highly regarded by the Federal and State Enforcement Agents from the various modes that have audited our members’ programs. The Department of Transportation regulations allow for Consortiums to administrate the random testing of regulated employees in order to comply with the DOT standards. A Consortium pools your regulated employees with regulated employees from other companies in order to have a large enough base to select individuals equitably and without bias throughout the year.

Our Consortium fee includes all:

  • Random selections including all draws, notifications and follow-up
  • Random SAMHSA drug screens including collection, lab and MRO fees
  • DOT alcohol screens including collection fees
  • Semi-annual drug testing summary reports
  • Annual consortium summary report
  • Access to on-line supervisor and employee training programs

Company Drug & Alcohol Policy and Employee Training Packet

Oschmann Employee Screening Services can work with you to create a drug & alcohol testing policy customized to your needs and that complies with federal and state regulations. Effective January 1, 1996 all DOT regulated modes require covered employees be trained in the rules of their modality’s drug & alcohol testing regulations and their company drug & alcohol policy. Your custom packet contains a company policy that is tailored to your company’s requirements and the information required to explain the modal requirements to your covered employees.

Recognizing Drug & Alcohol Abuse/Misuse Training For Supervisors

Effective January 1, 1996 as required by the various DOT modes all supervisors of covered employees must undergo two hours of training in recognizing the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse/misuse in the workplace. Oschmann Employee Screening Services offers an on-line training program to help you meet this requirement. The program provides supervisors with the necessary tools to help determine reasonable cause situations.

Supervisors must have this training in order to send a safety-sensitive employee for a Reasonable Cause Drug or Alcohol test. This program is a must if you supervise employees who are covered under the Department of Transportation regulations or a company Drug Free Workplace program. The concepts are universal.
