Facilitator: Wayne K. Jeffery B.Sc.(Pharm), M.SC(Pharm)
April 25, 2019
Cost: $115 per participant
This workshop provides education on the detection and recognition of the sign/symptoms of alcohol, drug use, fatigue and medical impairment. If not dealt with in a timely manner, impairment from alcohol, drugs, fatigue and medical impairment can have detrimental and potentially fatal consequences in the workplace.
This seminar will highlight “how to recognize and detect marijuana impairment in the workplace”.
The concept of drugs which cause impairment in a work environment is explained and major drug categories, including the drugs of choice within a community setting, are outlined. Participants learn how to identify individuals exhibiting signs of drug use and/or impairment. This training seminar equips participants with the knowledge and skills required to evaluate and properly document identifiable symptoms.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify visible signs and symptoms of individuals who may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or may be suffering from fatigue or medical impairment.
- Identify the observable effects of each of the seven major drug categories.
- Identify certain medical conditions that may produce similar signs of impairment, properly document such observations.
This workshop provides invaluable training to management in many diverse operations including, but not limited to: retail, warehousing, forestry, health care, transportation, law enforcement agencies, and education and professional offices.
