Product Line: MARCOM Regulatory Compliance Series
Supervisors need to respect a worker's private life. But what if a worker had too much to drink one night? Or another worker smoked some dope over a weekend? How about the employee who has been taking medications that could impair their ability to work safely? When substance abusers arrive at work, they don't leave their problems at the door. What these employees are doing both on and off -duty could cause them to have a serious accident. Managers and supervisors need to know how substance abuse can affect a workplace, how to recognize signs of abuse and what they can do to handle abuse situations.
The second in a two-part series on dealing with drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace, MARCOM's training products on "Dealing with Drug and Alcohol Abuse... for Managers and Supervisors in Construction Environments" discuss the various forms of substance abuse that are typically found in the workplace, how managers and supervisors can detect substance abuse problems, and what they should... and shouldn't... do if they discover a worker with a substance abuse problem. Topics covered in the products include:
How substance abuse can affect a workplace.
Related laws and regulations.
Creating an alcohol and drug-free workplace.
The roles of education and testing.
Recognizing on-the-job substance abuse.
How to handle substance abuse situations.
The DVD versions of the programs are divided into 2 - 3 minute "chapters", so the programs can be shown in their entirety in a single session, or individual chapters can be used as the basis for a number of 10 - 15 minute "Tailgate Meetings" or "Toolbox Talks".
