What is a DOT SAP Evaluation?

Certain employees in the transportation industry are subject to federal drug and/or alcohol testing regulations under the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT).  An employee who violates these regulations must be immediately removed from safety-sensitive functions until he/she successfully completes the DOT return to duty process.

In my role as a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), I act as the service agent responsible for overseeing this process.  I am experienced in doing SAP evaluations for the Department of Transportation since the inception of DOT guidelines in 1995 for the following agencies:

  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
  • Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
  • Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)
  • United States Coast Guard (USCG)
