As a supervisor, you are responsible for the safety and productivity of your employees. Substance abuse has a profound effect on both of these.

As a result of the overwhelming evidence of the negative effect of employees under the influence of substances, many companies and organizations have instituted the Drug-Free Workplace Program.

This course fulfills the two hour requirement for initial training.

In addition to following the online coursework, you will be asked to read and respond to some workplace examples of possible intoxication. After emailing your responses to the facilitator at nep@DrugAwarenessAndPrevention.org, your responses will be evaluated, and a Certificate will be given if you have successfully completed the course work.
