Big Sky Drug Testing Services, LLC encourages the education of employers and their staff relating to drug and alcohol issues, rules and regulations. The employer, as well as the employee, needs to be educated as it takes the understanding of an entire company to endorse a drug-free workplace program. An employer needs to be aware of the control they can exercise to attain a drug-free workplace, and the employee needs to know how to detect substance abuse in the workforce and what the proper channels are to ensure safety and compliance.
U. S. Department of Transportation - Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance (ODAPC)
The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines, and other transportation industries. DOT publishes rules on who must conduct drug and alcohol tests, how to conduct those tests, and what procedures to use when testing. These regulations cover all transportation employers, safety-sensitive transportation employees, and service agents roughly 10 million people. Encompassed in 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 40, the Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance (ODAPC) publishes, implements, and provides authoritative interpretations of these rules.
