If you are an employer with a drug-free workplace program, keeping your employees free from illegal drug use and preventing accidents caused by intoxication is a major concern. It’s important to note that reasonable suspicion training is just one step in maintaining a drug-free workplace.
This Drug-Free Workplace Reasonable Suspicion webinar offers training on the specific, contemporaneous, physical, behavioral, and performance indicators of probable drug use and alcohol use. This training will help you understand how to keep drugs and alcohol out of the workplace by making supervisors and other managers effective at recognizing drug and alcohol use and deterring use in the workplace.
Reasonable suspicion training is designed to assist employers with ensuring compliance and safety, as these supervisors must be capable of making determinations to test an employee suspected of prohibited drug or alcohol use. Those who complete the course will be able to make reasonable suspicion determinations and accurately recognize the signs of suspicious behavior.
Why you should Attend
This webinar will assist attendees in identifying the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use and abuse, and to recognize safety risks early so there is a higher probability of intervening before an accident or injury.
