For individuals unable to attend WSTIP’s classroom-style training sessions; two 90-minute webinars are being offered that will summarize the full-day curriculum.  The instructor, Diana Byrnes, will begin the sessions by describing the two fatal transportation events that led to federally mandated drug and alcohol testing and then identifying the regulations relevant to transit operations.  Diana will define safety-sensitive functions and the required elements of an FTA-compliant testing program such as policy, training, record maintenance and vendor oversight.  She’ll describe the specific thresholds that authorize testing in each of the testing circumstances (random, post-accident, etc.) and the process that a violating employee must complete prior to returning to safety-sensitive duty in the transportation workplace.  Diana will also address provide a plethora of resources for training tools, checklists, form and other best practices. Participants will have an opportunity to pose questions at the close of each webinar. 


Diana is a member of the Center for Urban Transportation Research Workforce Development Team and a Certified Substance Abuse Program Administrator (CSAPA) with extensive experience in the administration of FTA and USDOT regulated drug and alcohol testing programs. 

Ms. Byrnes provides technical assistance and regulatory guidance to transit agencies as the project manager for the Florida Department of Transportation’s Substance Abuse Management Oversight and Technical Assistance program.   Diana also develops and delivers training to FTA regulated employers and supervisors nationwide as a lead instructor with the Transportation Safety Institute.
