J.J. Keller & Associates recently presented a free webcast, “Managing Your Drug and Alcohol Testing Program: A Best Practice Discussion,” that provided an overview of managing a compliant drug and alcohol testing program. For those who were unable to participate in the webcast, J.J. Keller is offering a free audio/video recording of the presentation at www.jjkeller.com/alcoholwebcast.
In the recorded webcast, presenters explain key concepts for maintaining a compliant drug and alcohol testing program, from defining a driver who is subject to testing and identifying the various types of required tests, to evaluating a program and the consequences of noncompliance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations.
Other topics include pre-employment and post-accident testing; random testing procedures; refusal to test; attempts to interfere or adulterate a specimen; reasonable suspicion training; return-to-duty requirements; reporting; and procedures for positive results. Presenters also explain how to maintain a “dual” drug and alcohol testing program for regulated and nonregulated employees.
Webcast presenters include Dwight Siewert, senior safety consultant at J.J. Keller; Tony Magro of Kroll Inc., DHHS Certified Laboratories; and Scot Rambo, corporate compliance services manager at J.J. Keller.
