Employee Awareness

Employees subject to substance abuse testing in the workplace need to have a clear understanding of the drug and alcohol testing process they are subjected to. Since most employees are not very likely to pick up your company’s drug free workplace policy and read it front to back they end up “learning” the basics from other employees who also have not read the policy, or worse, have a complete misunderstanding of it. Even if you have that one super-motivated employee who actually reads your policy, they end up simply reading the rules which typically do not provide information about why substance abuse testing is important, or what safeguards exist to help protect them.

Employees need to have a clear understanding about what behavior is prohibited under the DOT regulations, why they cannot simply refuse to test, and what the consequences might be if they test positive or refuse.  

Repetition = Better Retention

This course can help reinforce concepts and ideas presented in your current training materials. Employees will retain more if they have been presented with concepts and information more than once, and in an engaging and memorable way.


Drug free workplace programs are more effective when all employees understand and support the initiative.

In this course employees will learn:

  • Why employers test
    • Federal requirements
    • Impact of workplace and public safety
  • How users can progress from recreational use to addiction
  • Details about the drug and alcohol testing process and safeguards in the testing process
  • The effects of substance abuse on the individual, family, society and workplace
  • The basics of DOT drug testing (collection, lab analysis, medical review and SAP)
  • The basics of DOT alcohol testing
  • Safeguards in the testing process that protect both the employer and employee
  • Common drugs of abuse and the short and long term effects of their use
  • Prohibited behaviors
