FTA conference scheduled for April

Drug and Alcohol Program National Conference on April 5–7, 2011. This will hold particular relevance for commercial drivers and the regulations that they are held to, specifically when it comes to drug testing. Currently, drug tests for commercial drivers are performed upon hire and at random. Most commercial drivers who test positive cannot return to safety-sensitive duties until they have been evaluated by a substance abuse professional and complied with any treatment recommendations to assist them with an alcohol or drug problem. This conference will provide attendees with increased knowledge of 49 CFR Part 40 (Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs) and 49 CFR Part 655 (Prevention of Alcohol Misuse and Prohibited Drug Use in Transit Operators). This FREE three-day conference will include speakers from the FTA and the Office of the Secretary’s Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance (ODAPC), FTA auditors, FTA Drug and Alcohol MIS Program and Newsletter staff, the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and professionals from the DOT Drug and Alcohol testing industry (including a Medical Review Officer (MRO), Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), Urine Collector, Breath Alcohol Technician (BAT), and a Third Party Administrator (TPA)). The conference will also consist of a number of concurrent sessions and various networking opportunities, so if this is something you’re business is involved in, check out their site and register now!]]>
