Testing for substance abuse has become a hot political topic. What used to be a straight-forward program has become confusing and full of litigation potential. Employers who want to maintain a safe workplace and conduct substance abuse testing now have more concerns about lawsuits or discrimination complaints because of poorly-written laws and fear of “retaliation” investigations. Regardless of the current confusion on what is or is not allowed, OSHA has provided a level of guidance that, as long as it is consistently applied, gives employers the right to test for substance abuse after an incident or injury occurs.

Course Objectives:

• Reviewing the “fear” created around testing and overcoming that fear

• Understanding OSHA’s guidance on substance abuse testing

• Knowing when it is OK to test and the circumstances surrounding the incident

• Testing “for cause” – what does that mean?

• How to have an effective team approach with Safety, HR, and front-line managers

Why Should You Attend:

Employers are facing more hurdles and legal threats regarding substance abuse testing than ever before. Knowing OSHA’s position and understanding OSHA’s guidance is critical for maintaining a testing program that is consistent and effective with reduced risk of lawsuits or labor complaints.
