What should counsel be telling managers and supervisors about what to look for when they are determining whether a worker is impaired?
Most people have seen someone who is impaired by drugs or alcohol. That life experience is a valuable tool. But should it be relied upon to prohibit a worker from continuing to perform their job?
What other tools should managers and supervisors have to make a determination of impairment? What are the signs that a worker is actually spaced out and not just bored? Can you rely upon slurred speech, wide pupils, the scent of cannabis, etc.?
Steve Maxwell, consultant, expert witness,experienced former police officer and drug recognition expert instructor, will prepare attendees to discuss with their clients the various psychophysical effects of drugs and how they impair a worker's ability to safely perform their duties. He will provide tips on recognizing and documenting typical signs and symptoms of impairment and recommend steps to confirm their presence.
