Description: As a safety-sensitive employee, it is your responsibility to safely perform your assigned job duties. This brochure contains information on the general use of prescription and over-the-counter (Rx/OTC) medications by safety-sensitive employees—in particular, those medications which have the potential to impair driving - and questions to ask of prescribers and pharmacists. The misuse or abuse of Rx/OTC medications is a serious safety issue. However, even the responsible and correct use of some Rx/OTC medications can also impact safety.
