DOT COVID Procedure Guide for the Drug and Alcohol-free Departmental Workplace Program

To ensure confidentiality of the random test list, the Substance Abuse Awareness and Testing Office (SAATO) provides the list to the Drug Program Coordinator (DPC) and the Collector/Breath Alcohol Technician (BAT) normally only a few days before testing is scheduled. On this test list you will find the names of employees eligible for testing, the chosen day(s) for testing, and the predetermined number to be tested on each day. The process by which employees are selected is a random selection computer program. The number of employees selected for drug or alcohol testing is determined by a preset percentage. If an employee is unavailable for testing, the next employee on the list will be notified to report for testing. This process continues until the predetermined number of tests for that day is done or the list for that day is exhausted, whichever comes first. All information relating to the test list must be kept confidential. This checklist includes COVID-19 testing instructions.
