Drug and Alcohol Testing Program for FMCSA Covered Drivers
Paperwork for New Hires
Applicants for DOT-covered positions at the University must submit the following paperwork to University Health and Safety - Occupational Health (UHS-OH) and complete a pre-employment drug test before beginning safety-sensitive functions. Such functions include (but are not limited to) waiting to be dispatched, inspecting or servicing any commercial motor vehicle, and loading or unloading a vehicle. Current employees of the University whose job duties change to include driving functions must also complete this paperwork and a pre-employment test.
- Doctor’s Authorization to Operate a Commercial Motor Vehicle While Using a Controlled Substance: A doctor must complete this form if the applicant or employee has been prescribed a controlled substance. If the applicant/employee is not currently taking any prescription drugs, he or she must complete the form.
- Information for Applicants for DOT-covered Positions: Federal law requires applicants/employees to indicate whether they have previously refused to be tested or received a positive test result on any pre-employment test for any other DOT employer.
- Release of Information: Authorizes the release of an applicant's/employee’s DOT testing records from a previous employer to the University.
- University Drug and Alcohol Policy for FMCSA-covered Employees (current policy as of 6/1/2010): Applicants/employees must sign the second page of the policy to acknowledge that they have received the policy. Please note that policy revisions are in process and will be communicated to affected departments in the next three months.

Respiratory Protection Program
Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire
If you will be wearing a respirator in your work at the University, you must complete a Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire. An Occupational Health Provider (OHP) will use the information in your questionnaire to assess your ability to wear a respirator safely.
We strongly prefer that you use the online version of the respirator questionnaire. To request access to the online questionnaire, please fill out and submit our Respirator Medical Evaluation Request.
Within one business day of submitting the web form, you will receive an email with a link to the online questionnaire, a username and temporary password, and instructions on scheduling your respirator fit test. Once you have completed the online questionnaire, you will receive a printable clearance certificate. If you are medically cleared for respirator use, you may then schedule your fit test. If you are not cleared, please contact us at email@example.com or by phone at 612-626-5008 for assistance with scheduling a respirator exam.
