“Do you have a separate Drug/Alcohol policy for individuals subject to DOT (FMCSA) regulation from your general employee Drug/Alcohol policy”.
NV Energy has a drug policy that meets DOT requirements and also incorporates testing for vehicle accidents. For DOT, we meet the requirements of random drug testing for anyone with a class A license. For vehicle accidents, any damage over $250 requires the employee to be drug tested. Employees are required to be tested immediately. Usually this is for preventables only, however sometimes being preventable cannot be established until sometime afterwords. Any drugs or alcohol discovered during the testing, the employee goes under the corporate drug/alcohol policy for counseling and random testing for two years.
Yes. PG&E covers non-DOT (driving and gas pipeline rules) drug and alcohol rules in our code of conduct. The Drug and Alcohol Testing Program outlines specific rules and requirements for employees in certain jobs covered by the United States Department of Transportation’s (DOT) procedures for workplace drug testing programs. All employees in DOT-covered positions must receive a copy of the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program Policy and Handbook for Employees and must sign and return an acknowledgment of receipt. We also have a process for reasonable suspicion of drug and alcohol use as well as a "fitness for duty" process.
