If you suspect an employee of misusing drugs or alcohol, you might be apprehensive about voicing your concerns; Most of us don’t enjoy confrontation, and we don’t want to say the wrong thing and end up with a disgruntled employee.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to address workplace problems that will help diffuse potentially emotional situations, while still allowing you to act with authority and in the best interest of your company and the public.
Bostec Inc. offers a two-hour class – in person or via zoom – that will teach you all you need to know to quickly spot symptoms and to act. Our supervisor training class demystifies the process of sending an employee in for a reasonable suspicion test. After all, you don’t have to be a drug expert: you just need to be willing to talk with your employee when you do see something that concerns you.
While the training is mandatory for supervisors in Department of Transportation regulated industries, the class is a smart option for all supervisors to take, across all industries.
Addiction doesn’t discriminate. Chances are that your workplace is currently employing or will employ someone who struggles with drug or alcohol misuse. Will you know what to do when the time comes?
