    E58 How EHS and HR Collaborate During a Crisis

    There has always been a tendency for organizations to silo into discrete units, which can make it difficult to address many of the day-to-day problems that arise through normal business. Now, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues disrupting how company's look and operate, it is more important than ever to have open channels of communication within an organization.
    In this special episode of EHS on Tap, my colleague James Davis from the HR WorksPodcast (hrdailyadvisor.blr.com/podcasts/) joins me to interview an environment, health, and safety (EHS) and a human resources (HR) professional from one of the largest private companies in the United States: Koch Industries, Incorporated (www.kochind.com/).
    Our collective goal is to better understand how EHS and HR work together, overcome challenges, and otherwise collaborate to make their workplace safe during a crisis.
    Our guests are Walt Malone, VP of HR for Koch, and Sheryl Corrigan, director of environmental, health, and safety for Koch.

    E53: The Persistent Problem of Post-Accident Drug Testing

    Post-accident drug testing is one of the most persistent problems for occupational health and safety managers. The issue has been complex for some time, but the recent patchwork of state regulations surrounding the legalization of cannabis (or marijuana) adds a whole other level of potential confusion. So for today’s episode, sponsored by OraSure, we’re going to chat with a drug testing expert about what you need to know.

    Joining us today on the podcast is Bill Current, President of the Current Consulting Group and a 30-year veteran of the drug testing industry. Bill is the author of 10 books on substance abuse-related issues and a regular presenter at conferences, seminars, workshops, and webinars, and he is widely considered one of the leading experts on drug testing and the drug testing industry. Bill will also be presenting an upcoming free webcast for the EHS Daily Advisor titled “Accidents at Work: Understanding Post-Accident Drug Testing in the Age of Legal Pot Use,” on Tuesday, April 28, at 2 PM Eastern time.
