Canada Drug & Alcohol Awareness — Supervisor Training
Fitness for Duty. Reasonable Cause. Compliance.
Making the Workplace Safer and Mitigating Liability with Training
This course is for front-line supervisors with a responsibility for recognizing safety risks in the workplace and requesting reasonable cause drug and alcohol testing of employees.
Drug and alcohol usage costs Canadians $46 billion in productivity losses, extended health care, judicial costs and many more expenses. Work performance can be impacted by drug use of any kind – alcohol, recreational or medical cannabis, prescription drugs or illegal drugs.
Identifying, assessing and approaching an employee who may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a challenging responsibility for supervisors. Corridor’s Drug & Alcohol Supervisor Training provides clear guidelines and resources to watch for the signs of substance abuse, understand reasonable cause or suspicion, drug and alcohol testing processes and the appropriate actions to take. Corridor training features Barb Butler, Canada’s preeminent alcohol and drug expert, showcasing her comprehensive knowledge base, best practices regarding alcohol and drugs in the workplace, extensive resources and real workplace situations for supervisors to learn from.
