As Safety Program Manager, Martin oversees all Department of Transportation and drug and alcohol compliance; safety reports and overall safety program management.

“We all know Barbara is an expert when it comes to drug and alcohol testing,” said Director of Safety Bobby Greene. “She truly lives out our ‘Service First. Safety Always.’ practices and encourages those around her to do the same. This is an excellent achievement in her ongoing professional development, and we are very proud.”

Martin developed a working knowledge of laws and regulations relating to the testing of illegal and unauthorized substances and for the misuse of alcohol.

Advanced Disposal’s alcohol and substance abuse program was created to protect both the public and the company’s employees. It is against company policy for any employee to report to work or to perform job duties, including the operation of a motor vehicle, with any unauthorized drugs or alcohol in the employee’s system. The drug- and alcohol-free workplace program offers substance abuse evaluation services to employees who voluntarily come forward and seek professional rehabilitation services.
