Presented by Bill Current, President & Founder of the Current Consulting Group, LLC

 Click here to view the recorded webinar.

These are unusual, even traumatic times.  Studies show that during a national crisis, substance abuse levels increase (i.e., post-911).  During the COVID-19 pandemic, certain industries and occupations that historically experience higher rates of substance abuse and workplace accidents have been deemed “essential.”  Drug testing is essential, and a smart business decision, but becoming more complicated under the current circumstances.

Join us for an informative and timely presentation on drug testing during the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by expanded Q & A with the presenter and other experts participating in the webinar.

 Webinar Objectives: 

  1. Review current drug abuse trends leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. Review studies conducted on substance abuse trends following 9/11.
  3. Discuss how to continue complying with federal and state drug testing requirements during the national emergency.
  4. Explain various drug testing methods that can help employers maintain their drug-free workplace programs.
  5. Discuss what employers should be doing now to prepare for the end of the pandemic.

Presented by Tom Fulmer, VP Business Development • National Drug Screening, Inc.

Encountering obstacles in business is one thing we all have in common. The thing that will set you apart is how you deal with those obstacles. While some people allow obstacles to derail or overwhelm them, others take proactive steps to meet and overcome those obstacles to maximize their opportunities to succeed.

This webinar will address how to overcome challenges that can steal your focus, sap your mental energy, and thwart the accomplishment of your business goals.

Here are some of the challenges that will be addressed:

Challenge #1: Not having the money to make the changes you want to make or implement the strategies necessary for success.
Challenge #2: Not having the time to make the changes you want to make.
Challenge #3: Lack of engagement or commitment.
Challenge #4: Setting your company apart (positively) from the competition.
Challenge #5: Lack of a clear plan and lack of clarity of direction for the company.

SAMHSA Oral Fluid Guidelines & Multiple Testing Methodologies: A Primer
Presented by Bill Current, President & Founding Partner, Current Consulting Group, LLC

 Click here to view the recorded webinar.

With the release of the new lab-based oral fluid guidelines from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) comes a new era of drug testing. While SAMHSA’s guidelines directly impact federal employees, many states also defer to SAMHSA guidelines, making lab-based oral fluid a viable option for employers across the country. As you look to expand your testing program, understanding how lab-based oral fluid and lab-based urine fit together to create a robust workplace drug testing program is essential.

Join OraSure Technologies for an informative webinar featuring Bill Current of the Current Consulting Group. This presentation will provide an overview of SAMHSA’s oral fluid guidelines as well as information on using multiple drug testing methodologies in your workplace and an ROI overview.

Bill Current is the President and Founding Partner of the Current Consulting Group (CCG) and a 30-year veteran of the drug testing industry. Mr. Current is the author of 10 books on substance abuse-related issues and a regular presenter at conferences, seminars, workshops, and webinars, and is widely considered one of the leading experts on drug testing and the drug testing industry.
