The objectives of this Online Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace Training course focus on improving worker safety and health in the workplace through drug-free workplace programs.
Drug-free workplace programs are not required under OSHA regulations; but employers should incorporate substance abuse prevention into their outreach and conformance assistance activities with regard to employee training.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Drug-free Workplace Policy;
- The Role of the Supervisor;
- Dealing with Situations;
- Performance Problems;
- Addiction and Intervention;
- Proper Documentation; and
- Employee Assistance.
This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's Drug-free Workplace Policy.
When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.
Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.
The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
