Alcohol and drug abuse can be a huge problem in the workplace. Those in a
supervisory position need to be trained to see the warning signs of this abuse
in the behavior of employees. That is why reasonable suspicion supervisor
training is a great asset to any company concerned with alcohol or drug abuse during
working hours. It is a great way to potentially avoid a very dangerous situation
and can protect all of your employees.

the past 20 years, a large percentage of companies have been implementing various
types of drug testing to avoid situations where employees are using drugs or
abusing alcohol at the workplace. In fact it is a widespread practice to give
regular or surprise drug tests to make sure the workplace is free of drug and
alcohol abuse. It is important to know that reasonable suspicion supervisor
training is an advantage to any company that is thinking about adopting random
or scheduled drug testing to their company employment policy to avoid any conflicts.
||This was easy for me to modify to meet my needs today—exactly what I was looking
for. I needed to develop a course quickly, but I didn't want to kill myself doing it. The content was
well developed and broad enough that I could adjust the run time by dropping a few slides rather than
having to add slides to make it longer. Thanks!

Reasonable suspicion supervisor training is a way to keep productivity and
safety always moving upwards. Studies show that people who abuse alcohol in
the workplace show low job performance, are almost five times more likely to
miss work, and are two times more likely to be injured on the job. The use
of illegal drugs on the job can have the same degree of affect in the workplace,
and can cause poor behavior, rising health costs, and larger employee turnover
When a company tests for drugs or alcohol there is usually two ways they do
this. Everyone is usually asked to take a scheduled drug test at certain times
throughout the year. They also ask that random testing be done on those who
draw up reasonable suspicion so they are unable to plan for the next testing
session. Knowing that they may be tested at any given time may be the best
way to keep drugs away from the workplace. Many employees that do not abuse
drugs or alcohol in the workplace may feel they are not trusted by the employer
if regular testing is done, where random testing happens when there is reasonable
suspicion of drug abuse. A “better safe than sorry” approach needs to be taken
about the idea behind random drug testing. An employee feeling trusted is definitely
important, but an employee being safe is substantially more important. Drug
and alcohol abuse on the worksite can compromise the safety all your employees,
not just the person who is abusing.
Reasonable suspicion supervisor training will teach supervisors what symptoms
to look for if they are suspicious of drug and alcohol abuse. They teach supervisors
how to spot tell-tale signs that clue them in that their employees might have
a drug or alcohol problem. They also teach what to look for in case of a false
positive (when a test comes back positive for a substance, but it’s an error).
This can be costly to the company to test someone who is not using drugs, in
more ways than one.

suspicion training includes awareness about possible statements employees will make and how
to avoid being manipulated by an excuse.
Most employees jobs are not regulated by the U.S. Department of
Transportation. Training includes behavior designed to have a supervisor not insist on a reasonable
suspicion test. And what about non-DOT training? Most businesses are not regulated by the U.S.
Department of transportation. Schools have intoxicated teachers, and so do departments stores.
