Supervisor Drug & Alcohol Awareness Training (Non-DOT)
This course is intended for front-line supervisors with a responsibility for recognizing safety risks in the workplace and requesting reasonable cause drug and alcohol testing of employees.
CannAmm believes that in order for companies to be successful in the administration of their drug and alcohol policy, supervisors should be trained in the industry best practices.
Supervisors are responsible for recognizing when employees are not working safely, and after making observations, requesting Reasonable Cause testing of these employees. This course provides Supervisors the knowledge required to effectively make and document observations and appropriately determine the need for Reasonable Cause testing.
This course meets and exceeds the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) Supervisor training requirements. It is also highly recommended for non-DOT employers as it conforms to the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) Canadian Model for Providing a Safe Workplace.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Explain the different reasons for testing
- List the drugs that are tested for
- Explain the importance of confidentiality
- Recognize and document signs of impairment
- Identify when Post-Accident testing may apply
- Determine when Reasonable Cause testing applies
