The United States Department of Transportation regulations stipulate that an individual who works under these regulations, and tests positive on a drug test, must complete the SAP process. The process includes an 1-initial assessment, 2-referral to education and/or treatment, 3- return-to-duty assessment and 4-follow-up drug testing program.
Under the 49 CFR Part 40 regulations, no safety sensitive worker may return to safety sensitive functions until the successfully go through the SAP Return-to-Duty Process. Our experienced staff meet the criteria of Substance Abuse Professional.
The Houston Area Substance Abuse Program/North America Substance Abuse Program require that all contractors who have tested positive under the testing guidelines go through a process similar to the Dept. of Transportation SAP Return-to-Duty process. Our SAP staff work regularly with these testing guidelines.
