The Federal Highway Administration has now published
implementation guidelines for motor carriers in setting up drug
and alcohol testing programs.
It is strongly urged that carriers obtain these guidelines,
which are written as if a carrier has no controlled substances
and/or alcohol testing program already in place.
Providing a logical sequence for implementing the various
elements of a program, the guidelines contain examples of
documents, checklists, forms and procedures carriers may use in
formulating their individual programs.
The guidelines and Implementation Guidelines for Alcohol and Drug Regulations in Highway
Transportation (order No. PB 96-197926) may be purchased from the National
Technical Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield,
Virginia 22161 (telephone 703-487-4650). Hard copies are $49, microfiche $19.50.
