   "The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation - 49 CFR Part 40 - defines the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) as a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

   The SAP's recommendations should, to the greatest extent possible, protect the public safety in the event that the employee returns to the performance of safety-sensitive functions.

   (Excerpted from 'Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance' - August 31, 2009.)

   Any employee covered under the rules of the United States Department of Transportation guidelines 49 CFR Part 40 may be subject to drug and alcohol screens for a variety of reasons including pre-employment testing, reasonable suspicion testing, pre-access testing, post-accident testing, and random testing. 

The role of DOT Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is one of critical importance. As the “Gatekeeper” in the Department of Transportation return to duty process, the SAP directly impacts the safety of the public.
