DOT & Drug Free Workplace On-line State Specific Training

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend


Less than 25% of the workplace drug/alcohol tests done in this country are federally required. Yet most available training is DOT-focused. Our training is unique! Our focus is on the training needs of the entire company - DOT and non-DOT. We make on-line DOT and State-By-State Drug Free Workplace alcohol and drug test training for supervisors and employees easy to use and it can be tailored to your needs. We constantly update our information based on applicable court decisions or legislative adjustments.

If you know what alcohol and drug testing rules apply you can:

  • Avoid challenges to human resource decisions
  • Lower insurance costs and loss payouts through reduced accidents and injuries
  • Increase employee productivity through reduced downtime
  • Reduce overall training costs by leveraging the efficiencies of the Internet
  • Improve training management and accountability through automated employee record-keeping and reporting
  • Enhance your corporate safety culture, consistently, across your enterprise

State laws related to non-regulated workplace drug testing have grown from as few as 12 in 1989 to over 550 today. Some state laws limit testing, others encourage testing through financial incentive programs. Some state laws require certain functions to be tested (e.g., forklift operators in Connecticut, home health care workers in Delaware), others establish rules for any employer choosing to test.

Supervisors and their employers are also being sued and losing cases at an increased rate because they simply don’t know their state’s law. In Iowa, for instance a supervisor was recently ordered to pay $68,000 to an applicant who he told to pay for his pre-employment drug test. Iowa law requires the employer to pay. In Missouri an employer lost a case because its policy didn’t contain the phrase “any violation of this policy shall be considered misconduct for state unemployment purposes.”

What can you do to reduce your potential liability? Know and follow the state laws that apply to you and your workforce. Establish procedures based on your state’s laws concerning testing when an employee is suspected of prohibited drug and alcohol use.
