DOT Proposes Drug Testing Changes
The US DOT has published a proposal that would make its workplace drug-testing program even stricter. Testing would include the drugs “ecstasy” and heroin. It would also lower the cutoff levels for amphetamines and cocaine. According to a DOT official, the proposed rule is intended to more closely align much of DOT’s program of direct-observation urine drug-testing with stringent Health and Human Services drug-testing guidelines.
