Breath Alcohol Testing
All breath alcohol tests are performed by certified “Breath Alcohol Technicians” and include confirmation of positive results. The evidential breath testing (EBT) equipment used for this service is approved by the National Highway Safety Administration. Prior to testing, the individual will be required to sign a testing form (U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or non-regulated) Breath Alcohol Testing Form,” which documents the individual will submit to a breath alcohol testing, the name of the Breath Alcohol Technician conducting the test, and the results of the test. The procedure for breath alcohol testing is available on request.
Results will be given to the Designated Employer Representative (DER) in a confidential manner. Such reports may be in writing, in person, or by telephone or electronic means. The Breath Alcohol Technician shall ensure immediate transmission of results that require the employer to prevent the employee from performing a safety Sensitive function.
