May an employer use a blood drug test for a Post-Accident drug test result?
If you are wondering whether a blood drug test can be used for a Post-Accident drug test result, the short answer is: “Not for federal testing”. FMCSA requires a urine test to detect the use of controlled substances.
For non-DOT testing, oral fluid would be a reasonable option, as it detects recent usd. In the near future, we are likely to have the option to use oral fluid for federal testing.
