PHMSA Raises Random Drug Testing Rate To 50% For 2018

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) will increase its minimum random drug testing rate by 50% for the upcoming calendar year.

Those who operate gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide pipelines and operators of liquefied natural gas facilities will be required to randomly select and test a percentage of all covered employees. In 2016, the random drug test positive test rate was greater than 1%.
