|Recognizing Drug Impairment Training|
Substance abusers are 5 times more likely than non-abusers to injure themselves or others in the workplace. Also, according to the American Council for Drug Education, drug abusers are ten times more likely to miss work, 33% less productive, five times more likely to file a worker's comp claim and are responsible for 40% of all industrial fatalities. Don't let this risk impact your business. Know how to identify these individuals before the damage is done.
This training is for supervisors, human resource professionals, managers and anyone responsible for identifying drug use in the workplace. This high-impact training will empower attendees on non-intrusive procedures for recognizing and diagnosing drug influence. You will learn about frequently-used psychoactive drugs and the mental and physical effects they will induce. You will leave with the scientifically-validated clinical and psychophysical tests used to collect and document evidence of drug impairment. Know and understand how to interpret changes in eye movements and pupil sizes and the relationship to drug impairment.
