  • Welcome – and introduce Linda, and Tina, and Carol Shaub from from Employee Assistance Program We are giving this training to make YOU the employee are aware of the Drug Testing Procedure and it’s requirements. Because we had a case in which the procedures were not followed . Some Background The Drug program was introduced by an Executive Order in 1986 by Regan and congress passed it into pubic law in 1987 which affects the executive order and requires: Uniformity among agency drug testing plans Reliable and accurate drug testing Employee access to drug testing records Confidentiality of drug testing results and centralized oversight And the NASA Drug-Free Workplace Program was implemented in 1990 to Emphasizes deterrence through education and prevention Offers a helping hand through employee assistance program And conducts drug testing on a limited basis.

    5. 5. Authorized Drug Testing by NASA <ul><li>Random - is the most utilized here at GSFC and requires testing of 10% of the Drug Testing Pool (future plans may include increasing the size of the pool) </li></ul><ul><li>Reasonable Suspicion - uses illegal drugs whether on or off duty </li></ul><ul><li>Accident or Unsafe practice - actions are reasonably suspected of having caused or contributed to an accident that meets the following criteria: </li></ul><ul><li> a. The accident results in a death or personal injury requiring immediate hospitalization, or </li></ul><ul><li> b. The accident results in damage estimated to be in excess of $10,000 to Government or private property. </li></ul><ul><li>Voluntary - Employees not in TDP's may volunteer for unannounced random testing </li></ul>
    6. 6. Drugs For Which NASA Employees Are Tested Note: HQ can authorize the testing for 3 additional drugs: Phencyclidine - a drug used as an anesthetic in veterinary medicine and illegally as a hallucinogen. Amphetamines - a white crystalline compound, or any of its derivatives, formerly used as a stimulant of the central nervous system to treat conditions such as depression, and as an appetite suppressant. Use of amphetamines can cause dangerous side effects and dependency. Opiates - a drug such as morphine or heroin that contains opium or an opium derivative. *Metabolites is a substance that is involved in or is a byproduct of metabolism <ul><li>Marijuana metabolites * - the dried flowers and leaves of the Indian hemp plant, smoked or eaten as a drug </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>2. Cocaine metabolites * - an addictive narcotic drug obtained from the leaves of the coca plant, taken illegally as a stimulant. It is now only used medicinally as a surface anesthetic </li></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>Determining TDPs includes a review of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>specific tasks performed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>level of responsibility </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The categories of positions contained in Appendix A of NPR 3792.1A identify the &quot;pool&quot; of positions that will be subject to random drug testing. Consistent with its duty to achieve a drug-free workplace under E.O. 12564, NASA reserves the right to make changes, additions, and deletions to the TDP list. </li></ul>NASA/GSFC Identified Testing Designated Positions (TDPs)
    8. 8. NASA/GSFC Identified Testing Designated Positions (TDPs) TDPs Identified and determined by GSFC Supervisor HR notifies Supervisor and Employee if in TDP series by letter For signature confirmation 10 % of TDP Pool shall be subject to random testing. Supervisor with HR determines if Position Should be designated drug testing

    10. 10. Drug Testing Collection Procedure TDP will be asked to void into collection container (TDP will not flush toilet until after CSP has specimen) TDP will observe CSP in determining temperature and the separation of specimen into 2 different bottles CSP will ask TDP to read and sign a certification statement as to the collection bottles were sealed with tamper-proof seals in his/her presence; and that the information provided on the COC and on the labels affixed to the specimen bottles is correct CSP will instruct TDP to wash and dry his/her hands and remain in their presence CSP will require the TDP to remove any unnecessary outer garments TDP can use hand wipes provided CSP will have TDP initial each Label on collection bottle TDP can now wash hands Testing Notice given to Supervisor (supervisor delivers notice personally to employee ONLY 30 Minutes before test time) TDP Reports to: B3 Room 27 (Greenbelt) Health Unit (WFF) CSP obtains information from TDP to initiate Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control (COC) Form TDP presents photo ID to Collection Site Person (CSP) DPC gives employee Collection Procedures form (Employee reads and initials)
    11. 11. NASA Drug Testing Results Testing Concluded w/ letter to TDP MRO Determines Positive test Result Is: Testing Concluded DPC Confers with Employee Negative Justified Not Justified Positive MRO Confers with Employee Test results back to MRO Specimen sent to HHS Lab for testing (Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry) GC/MS - Testing conducted

    13. 13. Decisions Allowed By NASA Management 5.2 Range of Consequences 5.2.1. The severity of the disciplinary action taken against an employee found to use illegal drugs will depend on the circumstances of each case, will be consistent with the Order, and will include the full range if disciplinary actions, including removal. NASA shall initiate disciplinary action against any employee found to use illegal drugs but shall not discipline an employee who voluntarily admits to illegal drug use, in accordance with chapter 5, paragraph 5.3. 5.2.2. Such disciplinary action, consistent with any governing collective-bargaining agreement and the Civil Service Reform Act and other statutes, NASA orders, and regulations, may include any of the following measures, but some disciplinary action must be initiated: 5.2.2.1. Reprimanding the employee in writing. 5.2.2.2. Placing the employee in an enforced leave status. 5.2.2.3. Suspending the employee for 14 days or less. 5.2.2.4. Suspending the employee for 15 days or more. 5.2.2.5. Suspending the employee until the employee successfully completes the EAP or until NASA determines that action other than suspension is more appropriate. 5.2.2.6. Reducing the employee in pay or grade. 5.2.2.7. Removing the employee from Federal service. 5.1 Management Administrative Actions 5.1.1. NASA shall refer an employee found to use illegal drugs to the EAP. 5.1.2. If an employee found to use illegal drugs occupies a TDP, NASA management will immediately take the employee out of that position. 5.1.3. At the discretion of the NASA Administrator (or designee) and as part of an EAP, an employee may be permitted to return to duty in a TDP if the employee's return would not endanger public health or safety or national security. 5.4 Initiation Of Mandatory Removal From Federal Service NASA will initiate action to remove an employee for the following: 5.4.1. Refusing to obtain counseling or rehabilitation through an EAP, as required by the Order after having been found to use illegal drugs. 5.4.2. Having been found to have used illegal drugs following a first finding of illegal drug use.
