Antero has adopted an Occupational Health Surveillance Program, a framework for evaluating impacts on Antero employees’ and contractors’ health. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation 29 CFR. §1910.1000 contains the Z tables that list analytics or agents that have specific regulations that mandate baseline evaluation or monitored health surveillance requirements.
Antero is a drug- and alcohol-free workplace. Per PHMSA requirements, we conduct random drug screening on 25% to 50% of employees on an annual basis, who perform work on pipeline and liquefied natural gas facilities. The company screens each of those affected employees before their first day of employment, after an accident, or upon reasonable suspicion. These drug-testing standards comply with PHMSA DOT 49 CFR, Parts 40 and 199. In addition, Antero assesses its contractor’s written drug and alcohol programs, including a review of the testing policy, testing techniques, and the panel of drugs screened.
