On May 12, 2016, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule to revise its Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness regulations that took effect August 10, 2016. The rule is part of an extensive rulemaking that concerns the tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses.

Employers covered by these rules must record each recordable employee injury and illness.Read More

As the DOT considers the implementation of the electronic Chain of Custody Form (eCCF) and the non-regulated industry continues to expand the use of eCCF, it is important to evaluate the pros and cons and the impact of its use in your drug-testing program.
National Aviation Day was established in 1939 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in honor of the Wright brothers. However, the date specifically represents Orville Wright's birthday, August 19, 1871. The Wright brothers' success was due to many factors, but their innovative thinking and innate passion for aviation really set them above the rest.
Since their first successful flight in 1903, the aviation industry has grown tremendously and continues to excel and advance.
The Team at NATACS wants to know:
Who do you think are some less recognized, but just as influential people in the aviation industry as the Wright brothers?
Have a happy and safe National Aviation Day!Read More

“Recreational or Medical” Marijuana vs FAA/DOT Drug Testing
By Shirley Negri, NATA Compliance Services
Nearly 50 percent of the United States currently has laws legalizing marijuana in some form. (See Map.)
How does this impact your repair station? Technically it doesn’t, if your operation performs maintenance on commercial aircraft operations including air tour for hire.
The Department of Transportation and the FAA maintain requirements that all “safety-sensitive or covered” employees (e.g., A&P Technicians, Sheet Metal Mechanics, Avionics Technicians) be subject to drug and alcohol testing. Further, regardless if marijuana was used for recreational or medicinal purposes in a state that has “legalized” the activity, detection of use will result in a positive drug test.
