Managers need to know how to respond when their workgroup is affected by drugs or alcohol. Learn what to look for and how proper intervention can help. The Managing the Drug Free Workplacce training program helps you meet mandated training requirements and provides guidance for your managers and supervisors.
The widespread use and acceptance of alcohol and drugs in society has had an impact on the workplace—and created special challenges for managers. Whether or not drug-free workplace training is mandated in your organization, managers need to know how to respond when their workgroup is affected by employees with drug or alcohol problems.
Featuring bonus scenes not included in the employee version, this manager version shows all individuals with supervisory responsibilities what to look for and what to do if they become aware of substance abuse among their direct reports. It also cautions them to be aware of legal requirements, such as ADA and FMLA, that might affect scheduling and performance management once they are on notice of a problem.
How to Spot Drugs in the Workplace
When employees don’t seem right, it's often hard to pinpoint exactly what their problem is. But here are some symptoms that might indicate drug or alcohol abuse:
- bloodshot eyes
- enlarged or reduced pupils
- impaired speech or coordination
- changes in behavior or mood
- difficulty concentrating, learning or remembering
- inappropriate behavior such as apathy or disorientation, agitation or irritability
If these signs accompany reduced performance on the job, it’s time to have a conversation about expectations, consequences, and resources that may be available to help. Recovery is possible—it takes courage, persistence, and hard work, but it’s worth it!
