Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ Consulting and Training

Drug and alcohol use is a significant threat to workplace health, safety, and productivity. Occupational and 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 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 testing protocols are pre-employment, post-incident, reasonable suspicion, random, and substance abuse treatment follow up testing. In the situation of the employee recognized as a hazard, the employer needs to conduct a Reasonable Suspicion Assessment ™ evaluating potential impairment of that employee. Do your employees and management staff have the skills and training to identify behaviors and related signs and symptoms of substance use? Do your workplace drug and alcohol policies include Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ Training? Do not wait for an incident to occur in the workplace, relying solely on post-incident testing to identify impairment. Train your staff to identify and respond to impairment in the workplace proactively.

Contact us to explore consulting and training solutions for Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ in your workplace. Traditional classroom and online training options are available.
