The FMCSA requires that employers conduct alcohol tests as soon as practicable following an accident – generally within 2 hours and no later than 8 hours from the time an accident occurred. Drug tests must be administered within 32 hours.
Since property damage or personal injury may result from accidents, testing following an accident can help determine whether drugs and/or alcohol were a factor.
Companies with employees under DOT regulations are required to perform post-accident testing. However, many other companies are choosing to implement a post-accident testing program for the purpose of maintaining a safe working environment.
