Drug and alcohol testing at the TTC
Information Guide - 2018
The TTC adopted its Fitness for Duty Policy in 2010 to protect the health and safety of employees, its customers, the public, and the environment in which we live and operate. The TTC recognizes that alcohol or other drug use and extreme fatigue can impact personal safety, compromise the quality of customer service, and adversely affect the reputation and goodwill of the TTC. Recognizing the safety-sensitive nature of our operations, the Fitness for Duty Policy outlines in more detail the restrictions on the use of alcohol and other drugs and associated fitness for duty standards expected for all employees. This document is a summary of the policy.
Random testing, implemented in May 2017, is the newest component of the TTC’s existing Fitness for Duty policy. Random drug and alcohol testing is an important part of the TTC’s comprehensive commitment to ensuring the safety of our employees, our customers and all road users.
