medication - request doc clearance for driving
I have caution bells going off in my head, so I am hoping someone has dealt with similar situations. We have a new EE that has been hired for a specific position but his supervisor would also like to have him "approved" to to drive a company vehicle if needed occassionally. My questions deals with the fact that his post offer testing indicates that he does use a prescription pain medication daily. My concern is whether driving is not recommended when taking this medication especially since a company vehicle would be involved. Since this is a safety issue, I am thinking I would like to issue a form for his doctor to complete which would only address whether or not he is capable of safely performing driving duties. Anyone have thoughts on this?
