The DOT provides the regulatory framework that employers who operate under a particular DOT agency must adhere to, and DISA has been helping companies maintain DOT drug testing compliance since the beginning. These regulations cover a wide range of companies and employees in safety-sensitive industries to ensure they're operating safely and responsibly.
Who is Subject to DOT Drug Testing?

Drug Testing with DISA includes:
When a DOT mandated employee in a safety-sensitive position fails a test, the employee must be immediately removed from their duties. Depending on their position, the industry they're in, and which company policies they're subject to, additional consequences like having their license suspended may occur.
To be eligible to return to their position, the employee will need to complete a return-to-duty process. This includes a treatment and education program with a DOT-qualified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), follow-up evaluations, and more frequent follow-up drug testing that must result in a negative test.
