OSHA Rule discourages Blanket Post-Injury Drug Tests

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s final electronic recordkeeping rule takes a stance against blanket employer policies that mandate post-injury drug testing.

The final rule does not ban drug testing of employees, but it does prohibit employers from using drug testing or the threat of testing as a form of adverse action against employees who report injuries or illnesses, according to the final rule, published Wednesday and taking effect on Jan. 1, 2017.
