The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) under the FHWA regulation 49CFR Part 382, has established certain rules for ensuring public safety in federally-qualified transportation services. The safety objective is to prevent, through deterrence and detection, alcohol and controlled substances users from performing transportation “safety-sensitive” functions. The substance abuse professional (SAP) is responsible for several duties important to the evaluation, referral and treatment of employees identified through breath and urinalysis testing as being positive for alcohol and/or controlled substance use. Shawn Cade and April Watkins provide the DOT/SAP services at Oasis.
Many modern companies offer employees a program known as the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The goal of such programs is to provide a procedure whereby an employer can offer an employee another alternative besides personnel discipline, when a job-performance problem has been identified. This approach also offers an employee a practical, confidential, and solution-focused approach to problems which may be affecting their ability to satisfactorily complete work tasks. The goal is to assist the employee in identifying and resolving the problem at their earliest stage and return the employee to effective levels of work performance.
Adult Psychological Testing
Psychological testing can be beneficial in a variety of ways. Intellectual (IQ) and achievement testing, for example, is helpful in assessing the nature of learning difficulties and in providing future treatment. Psychological testing can also be helpful in addressing such issues as diagnostic clarification and reinforcing appropriate treatment considerations.
