Overview

One out of ten workers in the United States has a substance abuse problem. Substance abusers have more than three times as many accidents and injuries as other employees, use two times the amount of medical benefits, and file more than twice as many workmen’s compensation claims. Supervisors and managers benefit from this online safety training video which explains the rules and regulations for dealing with substance abuse in the workplace.

This course stresses the importance of creating a workplace free from drugs and alcohol. Management can encourage this is by having a drug and alcohol policy in place, preventing substance abuse through employee educational sessions, and holding training sessions for supervisors and managers. Employees should be informed about the effects of drugs and alcohol, how substance abuse effects work performance, learn how to identify drug and alcohol addiction, how to report substance abuse, and where to get help in overcoming substance abuse. Another way companies can keep the workplace free from substance abuse is by having regular drug and alcohol testing to identify substance abusers.

Viewers learn about the five types of drug testing; pre-employment tests, reasonable suspicion tests, post-accident tests, return-to-duty tests, and random drug tests.

Watch this online training course to help prevent substance abuse in the workplace and deal with it appropriately if it does occur.
