RANDOM DRUG TESTING
Resulting in a SAFETY CONCERN or MEDICAL CONCERN

If you are asked to give a random urine test, the following information will help you through the process:
 

  • Do not volunteer medical condition(s) or prescription(s) to Frontier or the Collector (the ONLY person you give the information too is the Medical Review Officer (MRO).This regulation is from the Department of Transportation (DOT).
  • If the MRO contacts you with the results, negative-safety concern, this means your urine test is negative, but indicates you are taking a prescription medication that could be a safety concern.
  • At any time if you are concerned or have questions, please reach out to your Association of Flight Attendants- Employee Assistance Program -CWA Representatives (AFA-EAP). Frontier AFA-EAP Representatives are listed below.
 
Various medical conditions have placed us under the care of a physician as well as, prescribed medications. Some of these medications can be used for conditions such as ADD, ADHD, thyroid conditions, etc. These prescribed medications can show a negative-safety concern result. 

As a proactive measure, AFA – EAP recommends you print the following letter, make an appointment with your physician and evaluate the medications relative to your position as a Flight Attendant. Provide your physician with a copy of the safety-sensitive duties that you perform as a Flight Attendant.

This letter is to be carried with you at all times, in case the MRO would call you to discuss results of a safety concern or medical concern.  Advise the MRO of your physicians’ letter that states you are safe to fly and you are willing to fax the letter immediately.

In the employee handbook, section 11.05; ANTI-DRUG POLICY AND REGULATIONS and section 11.10; GENERAL POLICIES will answer many of your questions and concerns. The section under GENERAL POLICIES talks about prescriptions as well as over-the-counter drugs. 

SAFETY-SENSITIVE EMPLOYEE: the task you perform qualifies you as a safety-sensitive employee, not your job title.   FAA Regulation 14 CFR Parts 65,121, and 135 defines a safety-sensitive employee that is considered to be performing a safety-sensitive function during any period in which he or she is actually performing, ready to perform, or immediately available to perform such function.

Flight Attendants are First Responders and duties include, but are not limited to; safe conditions in the cabin which includes safety equipment, assessing conditions, safety procedures during emergency situations, providing first aid and CPR when needed, fire fighters, communication with flight deck etc.
 
If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call.
Fly Safe,
