Reasonable Suspicion Assessment Training

Drug and alcohol use is a significant threat to workplace health, safety, and productivity. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards in what is commonly referred to as the General Duty Clause

If an employee or individual in the workplace is impaired due to drugs and alcohol, that employee is a recognized hazard. As an employer, what do you do in that situation?

If the employee's actions and behavior are recognized as a hazard, the employer must conduct a Reasonable Suspicion Assessment
 to evaluate the potential impairment of that employee.

 

  • Do your employees, management staff, and foreman have the skills and training to identify substance use behaviors and related signs and symptoms?

  • Do your workplace drug and alcohol policies include Reasonable Suspicion Assesment™ Training?

  • Would you wait for an incident in the workplace, relying solely on post-incident testing to identify impairment?

 

Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ Training is available in 3 formats:

  • Self-paced online course. Click here to access the online course.

  • Instructor-led webinar

  • Traditional in-person learning 

The Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ program is designed to provide compliance training in the recognition and documentation of impaired employees. This class will teach you how to conduct a Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ in the workplace using a proprietary five-step process.

In this eight module class, you learn about the following topics:

  • Understand why Reasonable Suspicion Assessments™ are part of a comprehensive safety system

  • Define reasonable cause and objective evidence

  • Understand the primary systems of the human body and how drugs affect those systems

  • Review common medical conditions that can mimic drug impairment

  • Learn the drug categories based on the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program

  • Learn to use the Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ Field Worksheet

  • Practice documenting observed impairment

  • Review communication skills and how to respond to a potential reasonable suspicion situation

While this course is available to everyone (the more, the merrier!), it is designed specifically for industry personnel, management staff, foreman, longshore workers, and clerks working under the Pacific Coast Longshore Contract. This course is definitely for you if you work on the West Coast Waterfront!

Custom curriculum and group pricing are available. Participants receive a Certificate of Completion.
