Monday, March 9, 2015

SEATTLE – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $105,500 civil penalty against Servisair LLC of Las Vegas for allegedly violating drug and alcohol testing regulations.

The FAA alleges the aircraft ground handling company failed to administer drug and alcohol tests to the minimum required percentage of employees in 2013. The FAA further alleges the company failed to add five employees to its random testing pool for weeks or months after they completed their ground coordinator training.

Additionally, the FAA alleges that Servisair failed to distribute its drug-use policy, and failed to display and distribute educational material and an employee assistance hotline number following a move to a new terminal.

Servisair has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA’s civil penalty letter to respond to the agency.
