According to the DOT regulation 49 CFR Part 40, all companies with safety-sensitive employees that test positive on a random, pre-employment, reasonable suspicion or post-accident test, must be given Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) referrals. If an organization fails to do so, they can be subject to severe fines by the Department of Transporation (DOT). Contact Robert W Harelson PsyD,SAP at http://www.dot-substanceabuseevaluations.com
California residents who receive DUI’s in Nevada will be required to have a substance abuse evaluation. The purpose is for the court to determine the level of education or counseling it will require. Contact Robert W Harelson PsyD,SAP at http://www.dot-substanceabuseevaluations.com for additional information.
When a substance abuse professional diagnoses an indivivual with “alcoholism” that driver is medically disqualified and cannot return to driving by completing the SAP’s recommendations. The final step before returning to driving must be an examination by a DOT medical examiner.School bus drivers and municipalities are exemt from medical examinations.For additional information contact Robert W Harelson @ http://www.dot-substanceabuseevaluations.com.
