Here's what one Safety Official had to say:

"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 Training for Supervisors
Training in Reasonable Suspicion Testing
  • You need to educate supervisors on reasonable suspicion policies and procedures, substances of abuse, and how to not be fooled or manipulated by employees confronted for reasonable suspicion.
  • Employees impaired by drugs and alcohol can look like the average, everyday employee when drunk. That's because high tolerance to alcohol can make a middle-stage alcoholic appear as though no symptoms exist. No reasonable suspicion training program discusses this fact. Our does. We go beyond the "standard" information, and deliver information based on experience--supervisor experience and that of professional treatment experts and employee assistance professionals.
  • You must have reasonable suspicion training that "motivates" supervisors to act on the drug testing policy, not just educates them in how to confront employees suspected of being under the influence.
  • Supervisors must discuss the powerful, manipulative excuses employees give when confronted for reasonable suspicion
  • Reasonable Suspicion Training is best when materials and content come from not just supervisor experience, but employee assistance experts who have interviewed hundreds of drunk and intoxicated employees to learn of their risk patterns. This experience can only be delivered by Certified Employee Assistance Professionals.
Purchase of Your Reasonable Suspicion Training Program Includes Your Choice of Other Formats at Half Price -- PowerPoint, Flash Movie, Web Course, Self-playing Portable CDs.

Here is what training includes:
  • Role of the supervisor:  "How to Observe Behavior"
  • World's Best Behavioral Symptoms Checklist: 60 signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use, understanding drug tolerance and why an intoxicated employee may appear completely sober, the signs, symptoms, effects, impact on the workplace.
  • Effects, Signs, Symptoms, Images, Impact: Workplace hazards of the five classes of drugs, enabling and stopping common behaviors that encourage enabling avoiding the use of terms such as "functional alcoholic"; how to approach or speak to employees who are possibly drunk, how to document, how to respond to employees when they come back to work (no other reasonable suspicion training programs are this comprehensive.)
  • It's Complete: Our reasonable suspicion training program will leave no stone unturned as it seeks to maxmize the benefit of your drug and alcohol policy or drug-free workplace program.
  • Beyond the Usual: Alcohol and drug abuse can happen in any workplace, but untrained supervisors will overlook obvious signs of drunken or toxic behavior unless reasonable suspicion training includes awareness about possible statements employees will make and how to avoid being manipulated by an excuse .
  • Non-DOT: Most employees jobs are not regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Training includes ehavior 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. A playground attendant, trades workers, white collar professionals.
  • Great Fact Sheet, Take-aways, and Handouts: For example, take a look at this free reasonable suspicion training handout. There are many alcoholic and drug addicted school teachers. We have treated them. We have also treated restaurant workers, and construction employees, even secretaries and administrators, and employees in white collar workplaces. Being drunk on the job has no boundaries and a reasonable suspicion training course must apply to all employees, not just some.
  • Great Fact Sheet, Take-aways, and Handouts: For example, take a look at this free reasonable suspicion training handout. With your Reasonable Suspicion Training Program, you will reproduce fact sheets on the progression of alcohol and drug abuse in the workplace, signs and symptoms, common excuses drunk or toxic employees make to thwart supervisors, how to construct documentation, how to deal with an employee who comes back to work after treatment.
    • Remember, not all companies terminate workers. By far, most companies encourage workers to get help if they are identified on the job as under the influence through a reasonable suspicion test. If supervisors are not trained in dealing with recovering workers, they can easily provoke relapse by doing the wrong things for the right reasons.
  • Enabling--How Employees Stay Sick: Our reasonable suspicion training program includes all of the drug and alcohol information you would expect, but also background information specifically designed to motivate supervisors to not overlook, cover-up, deny, or enable employees they know may be under the influence.
  • Our personal experience includes writing alcohol and drug policies, orienting supervisors on such policies, interviewing employees identified as positive for using substances on the job, following employees in treatment, motivating them to stay in treatment when they have threatened to leave, helping them stay sober, following them up after alcohol and drug addiction treatment for several years in many cases, and consulting with supervisors in the workplace who weren't sure if they should confront an employee for reasonable suspicion of using substances or not.
  • Comprehensive trainers guide with alcohol and drug photos and specific information on each substance comes with the PowerPoint Program. You can easily deliver a two hour training--the amount required by the DOT. Our manual supports your reasonable suspicion training package and include plenty of information on enabling, coworker interference, cross-tolerance and cross addiction, how alcoholic employees may appear sober, common lies and excuses, myth busters about alcohol and alcoholism, information on the latest drugs of abuse, and a huge list of behaviors that signal "unfit for duty" or "intoxicated" behavior and much more.
  • Our guarantee -- 100% refund at anytime--ever--should you decide the program does not meet your needs and is not the most intense and effective reasonable suspicion training program you have ever seen.
