Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™

Drug use is a significant threat to workplace health, safety and productivity. OSHA regulations and their state counterparts require employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards in what is commonly referred to as the General Duty Clause. If an employee is impaired on the job due to drugs and or alcohol, that employee is a recognized hazard. As an employer, what do you do in that situation?

Among the variety of drug protocols are pre-employment, post incident, reasonable suspicion, random and substance abuse treatment and follow up testing. In that situation, the employer needs to conduct a Reasonable Suspicion Assessmentarticulating impairment of that employee. As an employer, do your employees and management staff know how to identify behaviors and related signs and symptoms of substance use?
