U.S. COAST GUARD REGULATIONS AND THE ALCO-SCREEN 02 SALIVA ALCOHOL SCREENING TEST
Coast Guard regulation, effective June 20, 2006 adds new alcohol testing requirements following a Serious Marine Incident. The new Coast Guard rule requires that employees involved in a Serious Marine Incident be tested for alcohol within two hours of the incident. The Coast Guard defines a Serious Marine Incident as follows:
The new rule also requires that commercial vessels have an alcohol testing device on board, and authorizes the use of certain saliva alcohol testing devices to conduct the test. The Alco-Screen 02 meets the requirements for conducting alcohol testing under this new Coast Guard rule.
The Serious Marine Incident rule requires that persons conducting the alcohol test be trained to use the alcohol testing device.
Employees covered by the Coast Guard Serious Marine Incident rule should also be aware of the following revisions to the new rule effective June 20, 2006.
Employees who must take an alcohol test after a Serious Marine Incident may not consume alcohol for eight hours following the incident or until their alcohol test is completed.
An employee, who refuses to provide a blood, breath, saliva, or urine, must be removed from safety-sensitive duties as soon as practical.
Refusal to take an alcohol test is a rule violation and may subject the individual to suspension and revocation proceedings, and/or a civil penalty.
