Attention Gas Members: Random Drug & Alcohol Testing Rate to Increase

Posted By IAMU, Thursday, December 7, 2017

The minimum random drug and alcohol testing rate is increasing for 2018. This means that 50 percent of covered employees will be tested. 

While the minimum annual random drug testing rate was 25 percent of all covered employees for calendar year 2017, paragraph  49 CFR 199.105(c)(4) requires the Administrator to raise the minimum annual random drug testing rate from 25 percent to 50 percent of all covered employees when the data obtained from the Management Information System (MIS) reports required by ยง199.119(a) indicate the positive test rate is equal to or greater than 1 percent.  In calendar year 2016, the random drug test positive rate was greater than 1 percent. Therefore, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) minimum annual random drug testing rate shall be 50 percent of all covered employees for calendar year 2018.
