Who should attend?
This course is designed for all persons designated to supervise others. NOTE: If supervisors are responsible for making referrals for drug testing based on reasonable suspicion, by law they must be trained on how to make that determination.
Supervisors shall receive 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and receive an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. The training is required to assist a supervisor in determining whether reasonable suspicion exists to require an individual covered in your policy to undergo testing. The training includes the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. Recurrent training for supervisory personnel is not required, however highly recommended as regulations, laws and the drug world constantly changes.
It is recommended for the Designated and Alternate Employee Representative, Safety Managers and Supervisors, and Personnel/HR Managers.
