Post-Accident Drug Testing: How to Avoid Retaliation Claims Under OSHA - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the legal limits of post-accident drug testing, and how to assess if your program is compliant to avoid OSHA fines.

 Drug usage in the workplace has never been more of a problem for employers. Although a drug-free workplace is a healthy workplace, the way an employer chooses to test after an accident can lead to extensive legal and OSHA fines if not compliant. The combination of increased attention to the impacts of drug and substance abuse throughout our society and in the workplace, the impact of legalization of marijuana in many states on employment policies and employer drug testing programs, and limits on post-incident testing announced by OSHA, make it critical for employers and businesses to assess and review their substance abuse and drug testing policies and programs in light of a changing legal environment.  

Use this on-demand webinar with Gary Visscher, a skilled attorney with extensive experience in health and safety law and policy. Gary will explain your organization’s compliance obligations concerning post-accident drug testing, and how you can avoid costly retaliation claims.

You’ll learn:

  • How and why OSHA’s injury and illness reporting rule affects drug and alcohol testing programs
  • Under what circumstances OSHA may consider drug and alcohol testing to violate OSHA’s rule
  • How compliance with other drug testing laws may intersect with OSHA’s limitations on post incident tests
  • When an employer has reasonable basis to test employees after an incident
  • How to assess your existing drug or alcohol testing program to assure that it’s compliant
  • And More!
