See 158 Images: bitly.com/dot-123 - This drug alcohol training program for supervisors packs a punch. You'll love using it because it generates a TON OF DISCUSSION about what employees do when they are caught for reasonable suspicion. Alcohol and drug training for supervisors to meet the need of the DOT, FMCSA, or FAA should include this ten slides, which are also available in sound. You may also email me directly to see the 158 image program. An alcohol and drug training program is also available for employees, and another program just for employees needing drug and alcohol training is also used by most people to ensure everyone in the company gets the message that substance abuse in the workplace is not okay. Alcohol and Drug Training will fall short, by the way, if you do not put enough information about Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the presentation. This is because, even with the emphasis in the news on drugs of abuse, alcohol abuse and alcoholism are the #1 most common substance of abuse, and even worse, are the most confusing. Drug and Alcohol Training programs that omit alcohol education fall short and employees and supervisors just keep using alcohol and making excuses Supervisors & Employees for DOT and Non-DOT. If you are a drug and alcohol training coordinator for the FMCSA, FAA, or FTA, from any state Texas to California, you'll get awesome use from this ten excuses program--everyone of which should be discussed with supervisors during alcohol and drug training and DOT drug awareness classes

  • See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 Reasonable Suspicion Excuses & More 10 For the Road 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  • “I haven’t had a drink since last night!” 1 • An employee with a high tolerance to alcohol could have their last drink late at night and still be under the influence well into the next morning. • They don’t have to drink just before coming to work or first thing in the morning. • Don’t let this statement convince you that a test is unnecessary. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 2
  • “It’s mouthwash.” 2 • If the smell of alcohol is on the breath, then you can document it to support a test for reasonable suspicion. • It might be mouthwash, or maybe not. • Some alcoholics in the later stages of the disease have consumed mouthwash in quantities large enough to induce intoxication—some mouthwashes are 50 proof or more See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 3
  • 3 “It’s medicine!” • Same as #2. • It might be medicine. • It might be alcohol. • It might be both. • If it smells like alcohol, you can support your documentation. • What the employee states that you are smelling is not part of the “screening out” process. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 4
  • 4 “I have used.” • It happens. • An employee who admits to using drugs or alcohol should be tested. • Their honesty means “I need help.” See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 5
  • “You’ll ruin my career.” 5 • Allowing an employee to convince you that a drug test will be harmful to their career and their life is called enabling. • Most companies have policies that support employees getting treatment and remaining employed. • If this not the case, testing still saves lives—the employee’s life, and others. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 6
  • “Who me?! Do I look drunk to you?” 6 • An employee with a drug or alcohol problem characteristically has high tolerance— the ability to consume large quantities of alcohol or drugs and not appear intoxicated. • An alcoholic employee with alcohol on the breath could be two to three times over the “legal” limit, but could appear unaffected. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 7
  • “It’s okay, I’m back in treatment. 7 • Employees with unmanaged or untreated alcohol or drug problems frequently know more about their problem than others around them. • They know exactly what they should be doing to treat their illness—but don’t. • Motivational presentations and demonstrations of sudden insight are usually manipulative nature. • They can sway unwitting supervisors from acting on the drug testing. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 8
  • “Let’s wait and see.” 8 • If you decide to “wait and see if it happens again” before acting on your drug testing policy, chances are you are simply procrastinating. And you’re enabling. • If injury or death on the job—or off the job— occurs, you’ll be kicking yourself and wondering why you didn’t act when you had the chance. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 9
  • “Let’s keep it between ourselves.” 9 • Don’t become your employee’s confidant. • It is a mixing of roles, and simply does not work. • If your employee has an alcohol or drug problem, your life experience, counseling ability, or understanding of human nature is not enough to tackle his or her alcohol or drug problem. See full 158 Slide Program at: bitly.com/dot-123 10
  • “But we’re friends!” 10 • If you are friends with your employee, you will face a challenge in recommending a drug test. • If you socialize and drink with your employee, this challenge is made even more difficult. • Consider this: Most supervisors will put their own job security ahead of such friendships when drinking or drug use facilitates a crisis at work. • Testing will not hurt a true friendship, and it may prevent a crisis that forces you to make a choice.
