MUST Safety Modules Upgrades
MUST Safety with our partner UL/Pure Safety have been working for the past several months on enhanced performance and content upgrades to the 18 MUST Safety modules.
The new modules utilize HTML 5 in eLearning which is the new industry standard. This offers a mobile-friendly development method that delivers dynamic content, intuitive navigation, faster loading, and increased functionality across multiple browsers, devices and screen sizes.
US Steel Online Safety Training
Effective August 4, 2014 Contractors will no longer have to attend the on-site Annual Contractor Safety Training at US Steel Great Lakes Works. They will be able to log in from any desk top, laptop, notebook, or Smartphone and view the training video by assessing this link http://ussgreatlakes.mtssafety.com.
If you are a new user or your training has lapsed you will have the option to register. All contractors who have received training prior to August 4, 2014 will be in the MTS data base for verification purposes.
CONCENTRA IS NO LONGER CONSIDERED A “PREFERRED” COLLECTION SITE
It has come to our attention that Concentra’s fees have increased substantially for drug screen collections. Due to this price increase, Concentra is no longer considered a “preferred” collection site for MUST or Alere and is being removed from the list of approved collection sites. In an effort to keep your costs down we are urging you to use collection sites other than Concentra.
MUST DRUG POLICY CHANGE
Effective June 1 2014
In response to Industry changes and the expectations of Owner Groups, Contractors, and Unions, MUST is modifying its drug testing policy to cover additional drugs of abuse. The MUST drug testing panel will now include Synthetic Opiates, MDMA (Ecstasy), and 6-AM (6-monoacetylmorphine). MUST is committed to bringing highly trained skilled trades workers to all participating jobsites. We will continue working towards 100% Drug Free Work Zones.
