This online Reasonable Suspicion and Managing Impairment for Supervisors course educates on proper tools and skills to recognize and handle possible substance abuse within the workplace.
Substance abusers cost employers approximately $10,000/year due to absenteeism, low productivity, lost-time accidents, and increased health and Workers Compensation Board (WCB) costs. This statistic is alarming, but it, also crucial that employers understand that they cannot test employees for drugs or alcohol randomly without proper documentation and proof. That, why the Canadian Model recommends supervisors complete reasonable suspicion awareness training.
