Reasonable Cause Supervisor Training – ShiftOHS – Classroom

July 9 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Course Description: A workforce that is “Fit for Duty” (psychologically and physically capable of working safely) is the cornerstone of a safe and healthy workplace. Subsequently, every organization needs supervisors and front-line managers who can effectively identify employees who may not be Fit for Duty and to take appropriate action in these situations. Employee drug and alcohol testing cannot be performed based on a mere hunch. Reasonable Cause Supervisor Training delivers the substance awareness, necessary tools, and practical skills to recognize and appropriately handle employees who may not be Fit for Duty.
This 5-hour course will prepare supervisors for determining whether or not reasonable cause exists and what to do when they suspect it. This course exceeds both the Canadian Model for Providing a Safe Workplace (COAA / Energy Safety Canada) and U.S. Department of Transportation requirements for Supervisor Training.

Topics Covered:
•Supervisory Legal Obligations (Human Rights, Privacy, OHS)
• Substance Awareness – Alcohol, Recreational and Medicinal Cannabis, Drugs, Medications
• Fitness for Duty Assessments and Signs of Impairment
• Reasonable Cause / Post-Incident Investigation and Testing Processes
• Refusal and Positive Test Management

Who Should Attend: Anyone who is responsible for supervising other workers.
