  1. 1. CONTENTS: SKILL 1: Sharpen Your Observational Powers SKILL 2: Take a Proactive Role SKILL 3: Document Your Suspicion SKILL 4: Test for Substance Abuse SKILL 5: Communicate Your Suspicion to the Employee (Supplmental for Instruction: Not Part of Course) SKILL 6: Educate Employees about Substance Abuse SKILL 7: Conduct Rigorous Follow -Up SKILL 8: Track Trends in Substance Abuse Reasonable Suspicion: Helping Managers Fight Workplace Substance Abuse INTRODUCTION This training program gives you a road map to navigate one of the hardest and most complex challenges you’ll face as a manager: fighting substance abuse in your workplace. Recognizing the signs of drug or alcohol abuse that trigger your reasonable suspicion--and referring your employee to appropriate testing--grows easier with experience. As you learn ways to handle noncompliant or argumentative employees, you’ll gain tools that will help you manage all kinds of sensitive and potentially uncomfortable situations. This program presents eight steps you can take to hit the ground running and adopt a proactive, vigilant and supportive role. By acting on your suspicion and confronting employees effectively, you can promote a healthy work environment and prevent individuals from succumbing to addiction. Confrontations rarely proceed smoothly and happily. Employees may resist at first. But they will ultimately benefit from professional counseling and treatment. What’s more, by stopping an impaired employee from driving a vehicle or operating machinery, you may prevent accidents that cause permanent harm to the worker and others. You surely didn’t join the ranks of management to counsel people on their personal use—or overuse—of drugs or alcohol. So it’s natural to turn away from this topic, to ignore warning signs and leave your employees to fight their own private demons.
