Commercial Drivers with CDL could and must be tested for presence of drugs
and alcohol and their metabolites in the following cases:
A pre-employment drug test will be required for final CDL candidates
for any full time, part-time or temporary commercial driver position
because this is involved a safety-sensitive function by definition.
CDL drivers shall be randomly tested as a condition of continued employment
in order to ensure a drug and alcohol free work environment. Truck and
bus drivers shall be tested on an unannounced random basis. Every commercial
driver will have an equal chance of being selected each and every time
the process is implemented.
Any CDL driver in Transportation Company or organization may be tested
for drugs and/or alcohol in cases that may include, but not be limited
to, appearance, behavior, speech and/or body odor and must be observed
by a employers supervisor who has received the minimum required training
in detecting signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use.
involved in any road accident (especially CDL vehicle drivers) must
submit a post-accident drug and alcohol test under the variety of circumstances.
an CDL driver is allowed to return to a safety-sensitive function following
a verified positive drug test, a verified positive alcohol test result
of 0.04 or greater, a refusal to submit to a test, or after engaging
in other conduct that violates this policy, he/she must be evaluated
by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) and pass a return-to-duty test
prior to returning.
