C-SAPAs are generalists who design, organize and administer services to promote drug-safe workplaces. These services are intended to improve health and productivity for all workers, decreasing accidents and the many costs associated with substance abuse. The C-SAPA must also assure that programs are operated in compliance with any state or federal regulations, as well as company policies. Other concerns of the C-SAPA, whether s/he is directly employed by the organization or retained to serve in this capacity, include assuring that the program adheres to generally accepted standards for administrative services, testing, training, medical review, confidentiality and business ethics.
