Set Your Company Up for Success With Supervisor Drug-Free Workplace Training
Your company’s drug-free workplace policy will only work when everyone is on the same page, and communication is the key to success. All too many companies fail to implement their plans properly or even not execute them at all. It’s crucial to keep in mind that successful implementation is the only way to set the tone for your business, and this depends on the knowledge of supervisors. They are typically your front line, so they should be well-aware of their responsibilities under the policy.
Step 1: Invest in Proper Supervisor Training
The supervisors work directly with your workforce, and they are the ones who must understand what to look for and how to put your company’s drug-free policy into action. In order to succeed, it’s critical that they’re carefully trained and supported. Just a few things your supervisors and managers must be adequately trained to do include:
- Know the most commonly abused drugs and their effects
- Understand their role in implementation
- Recognize and be alert for observable behaviors that may indicate an employee is actively abusing drugs and/or alcohol.
- Understand the physiology and psychology of addiction
- Understand and accept their responsibility in implementation
- Understand strategies for approaching an employee suspected of substance abuse
- Understand the goals of the drug-free workplace policy
Step 2 – Effective Roll Out to all Employees
