Description:

Are you unclear about what OSHA requires and prohibits in post-accident drug testing under its recent electronic recordkeeping rule? You’re not alone.

In October of 2016, OSHA released a memo that sought to provide further guidance on the basic principles of the anti-retaliation requirements in more detail. But, because much of the new interpretation is very fluid, safety managers need to take a close look at their existing post-accident drug testing programs to certify they are in full compliance of the new rules and new interpretations.

Although the rule doesn’t ban drug testing, it does require employers to only conduct post-accident drug testing if there is a reasonable possibility that drugs contributed to the reported illness or injury.

What happens if other federal or state laws, or worker’s compensation programs, require post-accident drug testing? How does an employer determine a “reasonable basis?” The anti-retaliation provisions have created a variety of questions for the regulated community.

Join us when Nickole Winnett from Jackson Lewis P.C. will explain how to interpret these amended requirements so you can ensure your company does not have exposure to potential anti-retaliation findings.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Assess the specific post-incident drug and alcohol testing program requirements as they apply to your organization
  • Review the key directives addressed in OSHA’s October 2016 memorandum that addresses post-incident drug and alcohol testing expectations relative to your existing programs
  • Consider recent OSHA violation activity relative to post-incident drug and alcohol testing program
  • Assess your existing post-incident drug and alcohol testing program components to assure they are fully compliant with OSHA interpretations and directives
  • Review recommended approaches for a compliant post-incident drug and alcohol testing program
  • And more!

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.
