AGCA Webinar: Making Sense of OSHA’s Controversial Drug Testing Position in the Context of Injury and illness Reporting
The AGC Oregon-Columbia Chapter will be hosting this WebEd session at the AGC offices in Wilsonville.
Date: 10/31/2016, 11 am–12 pm
Location: 9450 SW Commerce Cor Ste 200, Wilsonville, OR, 97070
On December 1, 2016, OSHA will begin enforcing an electronic injury and illness reporting rule that may prohibit or restrict your company’s post-incident drug testing program and safety incentive programs. Under this new rule, OSHA may cite contractors for such programs in the context of their possibly discouraging employees from reporting injuries and illnesses. Learning Objective: During this webinar, safety and health law attorney Bradford Hammock, AGC’s senior director of safety Kevin Cannon and regulatory counsel Jimmy Christianson will:
- Discuss if employer’s current injury and illness reporting policies are compliant with the new “anti-retaliatory” provisions.
- Identify areas (e.g. safety incentive programs, mandatory post-incident drug testing, and safety disciplinary policies) that employers may need to focus on to ensure compliance with the new requirements.
- Discuss the new electronic reporting requirements and effective dates.
