In 1991, the Department of Transportation passed a law requiring that employees holding certain positions undergo random alcohol and drug testing. The law requires random testing for those employees holding a commercial driver's license who drive:
- a vehicle with a gross weight of 26,001 or more pounds
- a vehicle designed to carry 16 or more passengers including the driver
- any vehicle transporting any amount of a placarded hazardous material
To find out more about this law, email the EAP office or call at (979) 845-3711.
The Department of Transportation law requiring Random Alcohol and Drug Testing is administered through the EAP office.
