If an FMCSA Post-Accident alcohol test is not completed within eight hours, then what?
If an FMCSA Post-Accident alcohol test is not conducted after eight hours has passed, the employer should cease all attempts to complete the alcohol test. The employer must record the failure to test in the file that was created when the test was not completed at the two-hour mark. The failure must also be documented in the employer’s MIS report.
