Description

Post Accident Testing Laboratory Services - FRA is required by Law to conduct forensic drug and alcohol testing of human specimens to determine any involvement of alcohol and drug use in railroad accidents. The requirement to establish and implement this program is based on a number of laws and Acts, notibly the Omnibus Transportation Employee Drug and Alcohol Testing Act of 1991, 49CFR Parts 40 and 219.  Internally, the FRA does not possess the expertise or facilities to conduct this testing. Part 219 requires the railroad employers to collect the pecimens of interest and send such to the subject laboratory which follows the contract requirements to test and report the results. Part 219 requires testing an expanded drug panel of prescription drugs in order to be used in determining impairment and causal role in railroad accidents.
