Dear Advocate Valued Team,

As The Advocate, I want to emphasize the importance of compliance when it comes to hiring safety-sensitive employees. Your safety is our top priority, and we must ensure that we adhere to FAA regulations. Let's explore the necessary steps to stay compliant and safeguard our collective well-being. ๐Ÿค

Title: Safety First: Compliance with Regulations for Safety-Sensitive Employees! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ”


As you grow and welcome new talent to your team, you must remember the critical steps involved in hiring safety-sensitive employees. If you have hired or transferred any new safety-sensitive employees within the past 12/18/24 months, let's review the essential requirements as outlined by FAA regulations. ๐ŸŒŸ

๐Ÿ‘ฅย Identifying Safety-Sensitive Positions: First and foremost, you must identify which positions within our company are safety-sensitive. These are roles that require the utmost attention to safety and compliance. ๐Ÿ’ผ

๐Ÿšซย Pre-Employment Drug Test: For any employee entering a safety-sensitive position, a pre-employment drug test is mandatory before the applicant is hired. This test ensures that the candidate is fit for the role and meets FAA regulations. Safety is our priority! ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ

๐ŸŒย Adding to the Drug Testing Pool: After a negative pre-employment drug test result, the employee must be added to the drug testing pool immediately. This inclusion allows you to monitor and maintain compliance throughout their tenure. ๐Ÿ“‹

๐Ÿšจย Non-Compliance Consequences: As the DER, you must be aware that failure to comply with FAA regulations can lead to legal enforcement action and a civil penalty of $11,000.00 per violation. Compliance is key to protecting your company and safety-sensitive employees. โš–๏ธ
