According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the construction industry has the highest rates of workplace drug use. Substance abuse is a factor in 35 percent of workplace injuries and fatalities, 35 percent of all absences, 38 percent to 50 percent of all workers’ compensation claims, and 40 percent of thefts. Substance use is only increasing those risks, which affect overall job safety and work efficiency.
Every company should have supervisors capable of appropriately and effectively identifying suspected substance abuse on the job. The purpose of this seminar is to educate supervisors and safety personnel on the content of the New York Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act and provide resources to recognize articulable symptoms of cannabis impairment, including best work practices when managing potentially impaired employees.
All attendees with receive a Certificate of Completion after attending the full course.
