DOT Drug Test Franklin Township
The Department of Transportation is a safety-oriented agency that focuses on preserving lives and health on the highways. If you are an interstate commercial vehicle (CMV) driver, you are required to operate under DOT rules to promote safety.
Your job is considered safety-sensitive because your ability to function at full capacity can affect the lives of yourself and others, as well as vehicles and other property. Because of this, the DOT mandates that you must be free from alcohol and non-prescription drugs while on the job. A DOT drug test near Franklin Township can make sure you are complying with this requirement. Astrahealth Centers can provide the required testing.
Know the rules.
The DOT forbids employees from having opiates such as codeine and morphine, cocaine, marijuana, and phencyclidine, or PCP, in your system while you are driving a commercial vehicle. Stimulants such as methamphetamines and amphetamine are also illegal. A DOT drug test near Franklin Township tests levels of these and any other drugs listed by your employer.
Alcohol is also a hazard for driving. The DOT sets legal limits far lower than those in most states. Astrahealth will test for alcohol on request.
