 Why do I need this course?

Workplace & Public Safety

Supervisors are your organization’s first line of defense when it comes to avoiding potential catastrophic safety incidents involving substance abusing employees. This course will help supervisors better spot the signs and symptoms of drug abuse, confidently intervene when necessary, and do so using industry best practices. 


The Department of Transportation – Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires employees with the ability to initiate reasonable suspicion test complete “recurring” drug awareness and reasonable suspicion signs and symptoms training every 12-18 months. Failure to complete training is a violation of federal law.


The reputation of your organization is at risk when substance abusing employee’s are performing safety sensitive duties. Substance abusers use more health insurance driving up the cost of health care for everyone; they miss more work; they are less productive; they increase theft and violence incidents in the workplace and unfortunately, they rarely seek help on their own. 

Supervisors will learn:

  • How to spot common signs and symptoms of substance abuse
  • What federal law requires them to do when they suspect an employee is abusing
  • When immediate intervention is required
  • How to overcome reluctance to act
  • How to initiate an intervention for crisis and performance situations
  • How to conduct a basic employee interview 
  • Documentation best practices
  • Intervention best practices
  • About the various drugs of abuse and the short and long term effects of use
