Driver Drug & Alcohol Testing: Is Your Program Compliant?

Driver Drug & Alcohol Testing: Is Your Program Compliant?

Sept. 14, 2016 – Webinar presented by Tom Deutsch, Director of Fleet Safety & Compliance with Integrated Loss Control, Inc.

Alcohol and drug use among employees can be an expensive problem for an employer. Issues range from lost productivity, absenteeism, injuries, fatalities, theft and low employee morale, to an increase in health care, legal liabilities and workers’ compensation costs. And the risks are especially high when it comes to employees who drive for a living.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) require persons subject to commercial driver’s license (CDL) regulations and their employers follow specific alcohol and drug testing rules. These rules include procedures for testing, frequency of tests, and substances tested.

During this webinar, you will learn key elements of drug and alcohol testing compliance related to CDL regulations, including:

  • What your drug and alcohol policy should include
  • How to deal with a positive result
  • What to do with an applicant who has a positive test result from a previous employer
  • How to deal with a dilute specimen
  • When you can send a driver in for a random drug and alcohol test
