The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has a mission to ensure that America has the safest, most efficient and modern transportation system in the world. Emphasis on the word “safest”. For example, any employee that does not comply or adhere to DOT alcohol and drug regulations is at risk of losing their job.
SAP evaluations are a great way to help employees return to their safety-sensitive duties after a violation has occurred. They are administered by certified substance abuse professionals with the intention of evaluating an employee in order to determine whether there is a substance abuse problem present.
The outcome of these assessments helps employers determine whether an employee in violation is able to continue working in the service of the public. Jobs such as school bus drivers, train operators, and airplane pilots are enormous responsibilities to the public which makes providing an in-depth and accurate analysis very important when it comes to SAP evaluations.
