One of the keys to having a successful drug-free workplace program is realizing that it’s just as important to educate your employees as it is to provide training and education for your supervisors.
USAMDT has designed a comprehensive training program to help you explain the importance of a drug-free workplace. It’s easily tailored to fit the specific needs of your company and, in addition to teaching the dangers of using drugs, it touches on topics such as employee health and safety.
Our drug and alcohol awareness education provides interactive training for employees and supervisors. It complies with the latest federal Department of Transportation (DOT) and numerous state requirements for drug and alcohol training. There are specific modules for supervisors as well as employees for drug-free workplace training.
USAMDT’s training consists of four drug and alcohol training modules:
- Alcohol testing education offers information on breath alcohol testing.
- Drug testing education provides details on the testing process, chain-of-custody process, and results review and reporting.
- Employee awareness training explores the physical effects of different types of drugs and their impact on the workplace, as well as employee responsibility.
- Supervisor awareness training includes all three modules above, as well as a comprehensive module on recognizing abuse, documenting behavior, and determining action.
Our instructors know the material inside and out and engage their students from the moment class begins. Employees come away from the class with a better understanding of the dangers of drugs, the side effects they cause, and why addiction occurs. Your teams will be educated about the effects of substance abuse on job performance, work safety, and health.
We can customize the classes to pertain strictly to your business if necessary too. For instance, maybe stress levels tend to run high on site due to the constant need to meet production or shipping deadlines. We can include various coping methods within the curriculum that relieve stress because using drugs or alcohol to cope should never be an option that someone considers.
If you’ve operated a drug-free workplace for a while now, maybe it’s time to schedule a refresher course. It’s a good idea to do that every year or so because it allows newer employees to understand the dangers that drugs in the workplace pose. Employees that have attended training in the past will benefit from repeating training at some point too.
