USA National Emergency Alert! Workplace alcohol and substance abuse are at historically high levels due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the legalization of marijuana. These concurrent events make our jobs more challenging by monitoring additional employees and coworkers for impairment and potential work-related injuries. Kristina Bowden and Cindy Tait will help you understand, navigate, assess, and document reasonably suspicious employee behavior in this presentation. Identifying impaired individuals corresponds with larger industry objectives; injury and workplace risk reduction while supporting and emphasizing employee wellness.
