    Field Supervisor Training in a “Fit for Duty” Workplace

    This half day training session is designed for supervisors who are often the first to suspect workers may be impaired. 

    This program will outline their role and responsibility in the application of a Fit for Duty Policy and how should they handle situations in which they suspect an employee may be impaired.  Participants will receive an Impairment Checklist and will also learn how to respond to employees who may challenge them based on cannabis legalization.
