Spring, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2005
With one out of every ten employees actively abusing drugs and alcohol it becomes imperative for any company to train their supervisors on risk management techniques to protect all employees and customers. Employers are required to provide a safe and efficient workplace and they depend upon each supervisor to enforce this mandate. Government regulators and juries are holding all companies to higher standards of risk mitigation.
Today, Trinity RJM (http://www.trinityrjm.com) announced a training course for supervisors who actively supervise one or more persons. The course is targeted to persons who have recently been promoted to a supervisory position and need to know how to identify drug abuse and what is required to protect the abuser, the company, and the public.
ÂThe pervasive abuse of drugs and alcohol, coupled with increasing corporate accountability, places all companies at risk.Â said Galynn Ferris, General Manager. ÂThe risk of financial loss from injury, litigation, and lost productivity is increasing every day. No company can afford to ignore the signs of abuse and hope for the best.Â
ÂOur purpose is to create effective training programs for small companies. We believe our clients are very busy and need to be able to take training on a schedule that is convenient for them.Â
Mr. Ferris states this course is designed to be delivered over dialup internet connections. ÂThis makes our courses especially valuable to rural businesses. We provide an affordable training solution for these companies because there will be no travel costs and minimal absence from work.Â
The course titled Drug Abuse Training for Supervisors has been added to HIPAA Privacy Rule and Bloodborne Pathogen courses currently being offered. It takes less than two hours to complete but the student can exit the course at any time and the software will remember where they were so they can return at the next opportunity.
The participant will learn how to recognize workplace problems that may be related to employee use of alcohol and other drugs. They will also learn how to identify and investigate crisis situations, intervene in problem situations, refer employees for counseling, protect employee confidentiality, avoid enabling, and how to continue to supervise employees who have been referred to assistance.
These courses may be accessed at http://www.trinityrjm.com.
"Telling ain't training", states Mr. Ferris. "Far too many online courses are simply Power PointÂ presentations. Our courses utilize adult learning techniques and provide lots of interaction with the learner. The result is a learning experience wherein the participant can skip topics that are familiar and focus on topics that are new. We include a review quiz to reinforce the learning experience."
