Why Should Employers Have Reasonable Suspicion Training?

Employers must understand that you cannot test employees randomly without proper documentation and proof. SureHire’s online reasonable suspicion training for both employees and supervisors educates on proper tools and skills to recognize and handle possible substance abuse within the workplace. The Canadian Model recommends supervisors complete this type of awareness training. Substance abusers cost employers approximately $10,000/year due to absenteeism, low productivity, lost time accidents, and increased health and Workers Compensation Board (WCB) costs.


Why Should Employees Have Drug & Alcohol Awareness Training?

Many employers solely focus their efforts on drug and alcohol testing programs but overlook education for their employees. Many employees are not aware of how drugs and alcohol negatively impact safety, productivity, and culture on a job site.


The importance of Reasonable Suspicion Training 

Online Reasonable Suspicion Training

SureHire has developed an online course to help supervisors and employees recognize substance abuse in the workplace before drug and alcohol abuse incurs costs to the employer and becomes a preventable safety incident. The revised version of the Canadian Model now specifically recommends supervisors complete awareness training. The course is available in both English & French.

SureHire’s Drug and Alcohol online training programs are designed to educate employer supervision to recognize and initiate appropriate actions related to workplace drug use and to educate workers as to how drugs and alcohol negatively impact workplace safety.
