Industry Sessions

For the third year in a row, DISA Global Solutions is hosting its annual Day with DISA conference and networking event, one of the largest employee screening events in the U.S. This year, we’ve decided to move the event to a virtual format to ensure the health and safety of all attendees, customers, and employees. Free to attend, we’ve expanded to 16 sessions over four days! Industry-leading experts will present each of our employee screening sessions with live interactive Q&A’s, door prizes, and more.

Each year DISA grows our list of attendees, including over 800 HR and Safety employees across several safety-sensitive industries, including Oil & Gas, Chemical, and Transportation in 2019 alone! As we head into new territory on a virtual platform, we’re anticipating an even larger audience with more one-on-one ways to chat with DISA experts, industry leaders, and our speakers themselves. Choose from 16 sessions ranging from six different categories, including Drug Testing, Backgrounds, Transportation, Occupational Health, Energy Owner/Operators, and DISA.

Drug and Alcohol Testing

Drug and alcohol testing is important for employers to address in their workplace, regardless of the industry. Whether you’re creating and implementing a drug and alcohol test or modifying an existing one, the following sessions will help guide you in learning what is best for your company and how to ensure compliance and industry standards with your drug testing program. With the rise of CBD oil and constant changes with marijuana state laws, employers must comprehend the laws in their state and how it relates to their company’s drug testing policies and procedures to avoid litigation, while also maintaining a safe working environment that meets industry standards.
