FAA Proposes $173.500 Civil Penalty Against Servisair LLC.
WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $173,500 civil penalty against Servisair LLC., of Houston, for allegedly violating federal drug and alcohol testing regulations.
The FAA alleges that Servisair failed to include 10 of its safety-sensitive employees in random drug and alcohol testing pools during several months in 2013. Three of the employees performed safety-sensitive functions a total of 24 times while not in the random pool.
The FAA further alleges that Servisair should have conducted 19 random drug tests in 2013 but only conducted eight.
Servisair is scheduled to meet with the FAA in October to discuss the case.
