Regulated urine drug testing
Companies who choose to have a drug-free workplace program help to promote the health and safety of their employees. Many companies have the option of choosing to drug test their current or prospective employees, while others perform regulated drug testing mandated by the Federal government.
What is a regulated drug test?
A regulated drug test typically involves a urine or alcohol collection performed for specific agencies categorized as “safety-sensitive” workplaces because of the potential influence of their job on public safety. Safety-sensitive workplaces fall under the Health and Human Services (HHS) or Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) testing authority, or are part of one of the following agencies under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT):
- Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
- Federal Motor Carrier Service Administration (FMCSA)
- Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
- Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
- Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)
- U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)
