On May 12, 2016, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule to revise its regulations on Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness, to take effect August 10, 2016. This effective date has been postponed to November 1, 2016, due to law suits brought in Texas federal court by groups like the National Association of Manufacturers and the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. However, it is still an important topic to discuss and understand prior to that effective date. The new regulations are part of an extensive rule-making that concerns the tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses.
So what is OSHA’s concern? How will this ruling impact the workplace? Can employers still test for substance abuse in post-accident testing? If so, how?
OSHA states that in order to, “strike the appropriate balance here, drug testing policies should limit post-incident testing to situations in which employee drug use is likely to have contributed to the incident, and for which the drug test can accurately identify impairment caused by drug use.”
Even with this explanation, there are still questions left unanswered. With several parts of the rule-making causing confusion for employers and the industry as a whole, this timely and informative webinar will allow attendees to receive answers to their important questions. Join industry experts from the Current Consulting Group and Tomo Drug Testing as they take on the facts and give you the answers that you are looking for.
