How does drug and alcohol use affect your workplace? Do you think that neither drug or alcohol use is a significant factor in your workplace?  If so, think again.  Drug and Alcohol use have a huge impact on workplace productivity, attendance and employee turnover. Surprisingly, the workplaces most often affected are small to mid-sized employers, according to the Department of Labor. This seminar is specifically designed to guide supervisory personnel and provide training on the following:

  • The role of the supervisor.
  • The observations a supervisor needs to make.
  • The signs and symptoms of probable drug use and/or alcohol misuse.
  • How to approach an employee you reasonably suspect of being impaired.
  • Refusals to test.
  • When to test and when NOT to test, as well as how to conduct testing.

This seminar will also address what to do if you do not currently have a policy.
