Breath alcohol testing (BAT) is a simple method of determining whether an employee is under the influence while they are on the job. Ways to perform BAT on employees:
Random Testing – a proven method of deterring alcohol use at work, random testing allows the employer to test the employee at any time.
Reasonable Suspicion – whether you smell alcohol on your employee’s breath, or their behavior indicates they may be under the influence, it’s probably a good time to perform a test.
Post-Accident – anytime there is motor-vehicle accident (MVA), it is a great idea to rule-out the possibility of drug or alcohol use.
Testing for alcohol usage is mandatory by U.S. Congress for safety-sensitive employees and a strongly recommended practice for all businesses to increase public and work safety.
Per DOT regulations, alcohol consumption can be detected in any form including:
Alcohol Containing Products
Over the Counter Medicine
