According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), more than 70 percent of those abusing illicit drugs in America are employed, as are most binge drinkers. The use of drugs and abuse of alcohol in the workplace can threaten employee safety, reduce productivity and increase workplace claims.
As a supervisor or manager, you have the important responsibility for the safety of your organization and its employees. TargetSolutions’ enhanced courses, Reasonable Suspicion of Alcohol for Supervisors and Reasonable Suspicion of Drugs for Supervisors, offer valuable training in identifying symptoms of drug or alcohol abuse in employees, addressing suspicions and enforcing company policies.
Modernized with video-based lessons, these two courses engage supervisors with a live presenter, custom videos, updated statistics and case studies. After taking this training, supervisory personnel will be better prepared to handle situations where they expect employees are abusing drugs or alcohol.
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports that businesses in the United States lose more than $86 billion dollars annually from lost productivity related to alcohol abuse by employees. No business, regardless of size or location, is immune to the countless problems that alcohol abuse can cause.
This course covers the various signs supervisors can observe to identify employees who may be abusing alcohol or under the influence at work. Using case studies and national standards, this course also offers guidance in how to confront employees about your suspicions.
Reasonable suspicion is a belief drawn from specific objective facts and reasonable inferences that an employee is using or may have used drugs in violation of work rules or regulations. This course covers how to identify if an employee is impaired by drugs and the appropriate ways to respond.
By categorizing different drugs and their effects, this course helps supervisors know what they need to watch for and be proactive.
