Drug Testing Program
ACL is pleased to announce it has negotiated for the services of Western Pathology Consultants, Inc. (WPCI) to provided ACL members with drug and alcohol testing as required by the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT). Under the federal regulations anyone who has (or should have) a class A or B commercial license and drives a rig weighing more than 26,001 lbs., must be subject to drug and alcohol testing programs including random testing. Generally, half of your employees must be randomly tested each year for drugs and 25% for alcohol abuse. If you participate in a larger consortium or pool, a smaller (or larger) number of employees may get tested and you would continue to be in compliance with the requirements.
Milani Safety Services
Got Safety? Everyone wants safety and no one wants to have accidents on the job. How do you go about ensuring that you have a safe operation? Some companies have not had an accident in years, so does this make them a safe operation? Other companies have had accidents, but are not necessarily unsafe operations. Safe operations are the ones that have “Safety” built in, not added on.
Spotlight on Safety
1. Headrick Logging instructs PG&E employees on chainsaw safety: Jim Headrick III of Headrick Logging demonstrating chainsaw safety to PG&E Foresters Ed Magrini, Dan Pierce, Dave Goehring and Steve Yoenge and PG&E Safety Coordinator Max Snyder.
2. Logging Accident: A logging truck driver in Jackson, Tennessee attempted to throw a logging cable over his logs to secure them, but hooked the 7200-volt electric line above the truck instead. The driver was not hurt, but he says the truck tires began to fry within seconds, and you can see what happened to the cab.
