Antero has adopted an Occupational Health Surveillance Program, which is a framework for evaluating impacts on Antero employees’ and contractors’ health. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation 29 C.F.R. § 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 who perform work on pipeline and liquefied natural gas facilities on a yearly basis. 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.
