Drug Abuse Recognition Training (DART)

DART is a training program that helps companies detect employees who are abusing drugs. DART is taught by NHTSA certified Drug Recognition Experts (DRE’s). DART trained evaluators can detect what a drug testing program can’t, or can be used in conjunction with reasonable suspicion testing. With the use of designer drugs that don’t fall within most labs testing protocols, DART evaluators can detect drug influence and abuse and guide toxicologists in what drugs to test for. This reduces liability and catches drug abusers that drug testing can’t catch. This course is taught in a variable length format, depending on the customer’s needs.

DOT/FMCSA Compliance

The Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (DOT/FMCSA’s) drug and alcohol regulations list out specific rules and responsibilities for companies that fall under these regulations. These regulations require a company and its supervisors to detect drug use and alcohol misuse within the scope of the agency’s regulation. This is required no matter how many or few covered employees there are.  Graves & Associates can provide the training required under DOT rules and regulations. The added benefit is that all of our instructors are certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as Drug Recognition Experts.

Compliance Assistance With the 1988 Drug Free Workplace Act

The 1988 Drug Free Workplace Act requires some Federal Contractors and all Federal grantees to agree that they will provide drug-free workplaces as a precondition of receiving a contract or grant from a Federal agency. As outlined in the Act, companies must do the following: 1) Publish a policy statement that they are a drug free workplace 2) Establish a drug free awareness program 3) Notify the contracting or granting agency within 10 days after receiving notice that a covered employee has been convicted of a criminal drug violation in the workplace 4) Impose a penalty on—or require satisfactory participation in a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program by—any employee who is convicted of a reportable workplace drug conviction 5) Make an ongoing, good faith effort to maintain a drug-free workplace by meeting the requirements of the Act.

Graves & Associates will work with you to ensure that you are in compliance with the Act and that you do not risk losing your federal funding. We will review your practices in maintaining a drug free workplace and help you through policy, training and drug testing to achieve your goals. By implementing a drug free workplace, you will also increase productivity, decrease liability and enhance revenue by keeping drug abusing employees out of the workplace.
