Corridor’s alcohol and drug training program is designed to educate supervisors on how and when to trigger drug and alcohol testing and ensure employees understand their responsibilities as well as what to expect if sent for testing. Work performance can be impacted by drug use of any kind – alcohol, recreational or medical cannabis, prescription drugs or illegal drugs. The courses provide clear guidelines and resources to understand reasonable cause or suspicion, drug and alcohol testing processes.
A well structured compliance program provides a framework for compliance with the Acts. Some of the specific benefits of a credible and effective program may include the following:
- maintaining a good reputation;
- improving a business’ ability to recruit and retain staff—a business with a reputation for compliance is likely to attract higher quality employees and have a better employee retention rate;
- improving a business’ ability to attract and retain customers and suppliers who value companies that operate ethically;
- reducing the risk of non compliance;
- triggering early warnings of potentially illegal conduct;
- allowing a business to qualify for favourable treatment in sentencing, or reducing costs related to litigation, fines, AMPs, adverse publicity and the disruption to operations resulting from a Bureau investigation and/or proceedings before the court;
- reducing the exposure of employees, management and the business to criminal or civil liability;
- educating employees as to the appropriate course of conduct if called upon to provide evidence in the course of an inquiry by the Bureau, or if the company is the target of such an inquiry;
- assisting a business and its employees in their dealings with the Bureau—for example, by identifying contraventions of the Act early enough to request immunity or leniency; and
- increasing awareness of possible conduct in breach of the Act among competitors, suppliers and customers in the market.
