The Drug Free Safety Program (DFSP) is designed for Ohio State Fund employers who are committed to developing a substance-free workplace. The BWC is providing 4-7% discounts for employers that make the commitment to drug testing and employee assistance programs, depending upon the level of the program.
The employer must adopt and implement the BWC’s DFSP policy and programs. The plan emphasizes post accident and random drug testing, management-level involvement and communication between employees and management as well as the establishment of employee assistance programs and substance abuse assessments. Additionally, at the higher levels, the plan includes implementation of the BWC’s 10 point Business Plan, orientation and training, record-keeping, and data analysis.
V&A will conduct a savings analysis to determine the premium savings each client will realize by enrolling in the DFSP program. Additionally, V&A will assist employers in the enrollment process as well as provide employers with referrals to organizations specializing in drug testing and training. Additionally, V&A will assist its clients with the safety grant applications, to expedite the process.
(Deadlines to enroll 4/30 and 10/31)
