Arlington Public Schools Wellness Program sponsors  several successful employee wellness initiatives including “Active for Life”, “The Biggest Loser”, “Healthy Habits”, “Maintain Don’t Gain”,  and the Bowling Tournaments in the fall & winter.

The APS Wellness program was established in 1986 by Arlington Employee Assistance Program for APS employees. The mission of Arlington EAP is to have happy, healthy and productive employees. The Wellness program helps achieve the goals that support our mission.

Drug and alcohol testing – DOT

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), along with the Department of Transportation (DOT), requires that employees who utilize a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and/or perform safety-sensitive duties as a condition of their employment, follow alcohol and drug testing rules.  The EAP ensures compliance with regulations, and provides safety oversight of all Arlington Public School and Arlington County Government CDL drivers.  The EAP closely manages the CDL Database and the testing process for pre-employment, post-accident, reasonable suspicion and follow-up tests.  The EAP is also responsible for managing the return to work process after a violation of a DOT drug and alcohol regulation, for any employees with safety-sensitive job duties.

Drug and alcohol testing – Non-DOT

The EAP provides guidance to leadership to ensure consistent adherence to substance use/abuse policy which prohibits possession/use of illegal substances and the appropriate use of prescription medication while on the job.  The EAP provides guidance when policy violations result in the need for drug and/or alcohol testing.

APS OSHA

As a result of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) of 1970, employers, including Arlington Public Schools (APS), are required to maintain records of all employee occupational injuries and illnesses.  This information allows APS leaders and employees as well as OSHA to evaluate the safety of the workplace, understand industry standards and implement worker protections.  The EAP is responsible for meeting OSHA reporting and tracking requirements in collaboration with Human Resources.

APS Wellness

The EAP provides a robust internal Wellness Program for Arlington Public School employees.  Each site administrator selects a Wellness Ambassador to lead their commitment to improving their health climate, build wellness awareness and boost employee morale.  Through consistent education and targeted wellness initiatives, EAP, in collaboration with our health vendors, promotes the professional, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of Arlington Public School employees.

The EAP collaborates with ACG wellness coordinators and HealthSmart to support ACG wellness initiatives.
