At ASTAR we understand the demands of not only meeting OQ and training requirements but DOT drug and alcohol (D&A) as well. According to DOT, OQ is a safety-sensitive function and all employees performing these safety-sensitive functions, whether it’s pipeline (PHMSA) or drivers (FMCSA) must be maintained in a D&A testing pool and meet certain testing percentages. We have highly qualified professionals on staff to help pipeline operators and contractors meet the strenuous and demanding requirements of your DOT or non-DOT programs.
Our professionals have years of experience conducting D&A audits and consulting services for pipeline operators and contractors. With the consulting service, your program will be thoroughly reviewed to assess your company’s compliance status in accordance with 49 CFR Parts 40 & 199. After the assessment, ASTAR will assist your company with making the necessary adjustments, if any, to become fully compliant with the mandated standards. We can also provide your company with day-to-day services such as:
- Complete management for smaller companies (Consortium)
- Management of NCMS and Pipeline Testing Consortium (PTC) accounts
- Development/Maintenance of DOT and Non-DOT plans
- plus, many other services
