Description:

Safety and HR managers now have good reason to be concerned about whether their post-accident drug testing and alcohol testing programs, as well as their safety incentive programs, comply with OSHA’s requirements.

In May 2016, OSHA published a final rule that updated requirements for reporting work-related injuries and illnesses, which also included a new provision that explicitly addressed retaliation for reporting incidents. Months later, OSHA released a memo providing guidance on how to comply with the various requirements found in the final rule. The memo specifically addresses an employer’s obligation to have reasonable procedures in place for employees to report injuries and illnesses and the issue of retaliation for reporting work-related injuries or illnesses.

The anti-retaliation section, which is one of the most important for safety managers to understand, describes what OSHA will consider as a violation when looking at the overall reporting program, especially in determining if there is a potential for retaliation against employees who report incidents relative to the post-incident drug and alcohol testing program and incentive programs (for example, withholding a benefit—such as a cash prize drawing or other substantial award—simply because of a reported injury or illness).

Join us when seasoned safety lawyer Nickole Winnett will explain the impact the final rule has on your compliance obligations concerning post-incident drug and alcohol testing and incentive programs—and will help you understand when you could be at risk for violating the anti-retaliation provision of the rule, according to OSHA’s recent memo.

You’ll learn:

  • The key parts OSHA’s recently released memorandum addresses concerning:
    • Incentive programs
    • Anti-retaliation
    • Post-incident drug and alcohol testing expectations relative to your injury and illness reporting process
  • What recent OSHA violation activity relative to reporting and recording injuries and illnesses signals
  • Tips for reviewing whether your reporting and recordkeeping program is compliant and up to-date-considering with new developments concerning post-incident drug and alcohol testing and safety incentives
  • How to assess your existing recordkeeping and reporting components to ensure that they are fully compliant with OSHA interpretations and directives

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
