The Importance of Drug and Alcohol Testing

In our society, drug and alcohol abuse is prevalent. Though efforts to stop addiction are widespread, it remains a serious issue. No workplace is immune. In 2012, the governor signed reforms in statewide drug testing, requiring state-funded employee training to include it.

Templates for Company Policies

An effective program can keep you from being the employer of choice for users, abusers and addicts.  The state has worked hard to help protect the honest and hardworking coal miners by developing this program.  There are even templates put together to help your company create your own policies.  Here are the sample templates.

Also, you are required to turn in a list of all mine-related employees in safety-sensitive positions.  The form used is available here.
