ICRMA Webinar: Drug Awareness & Response for Managers and Supervisors


Drug Abuse Awareness & Response for Managers and Supervisors
Thursday, January 24, 2019

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

This 60-minute webinar session helps agency directors, managers, and supervisors become better aware of drug and alcohol use by their employees or even with people use their public facilities for drug or alcohol use. The US is facing a severe opiate abuse crisis, including pills and rapid increase in heroin use. Recent changes in state marijuana and medical marijuana use, have made it difficult for agencies, HR managers, and managers and supervisors to know what is now legal or illegal when it comes to pot use by employees, on and off the job.

This webinar covers the most common drugs of use and abuse, including:

  1. stimulants, like meth and cocaine;
  2. hallucinogens;
  3. opiates;
  4. marijuana;
  5. alcohol;
  6. depressants, and
  7. dissociative anesthetics.
We will also discuss the health hazards employees must deal with if they encounter heroin users in their parks, libraries, public restrooms, or other public areas. The session discusses the protocols for employee drug testing, results discussions, and return to work possibilities for employees who have gone through treatment.

Who Should Attend
All Directors, Managers, Supervisors, or personnel who may promote into these positions.

Schedule: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
