(PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Colorado based Lifeloc Technologies, a trusted U.S. manufacturer of Evidential Breath Alcohol Testers and Drug Free Workplace training, announces the immediate release of its newest online course entitled "Marijuana and the Workplace." The course is the first of its kind to address the issues and implications of the medical and recreational use of Marijuana for employers of all types.
"Momentum behind Pot legalization is growing and the political, legal and business landscape is changing very quickly," said Barry Knott, president of Lifeloc. "Many employers are ill prepared to handle the legal and HR issues surfacing from the medical and personal use of marijuana as it relates to their workplace."
"Marijuana and the Workplace" is for Business Managers, Human Resource Professionals, Safety Managers and those responsible for the development or administration of their organization's substance abuse policy and procedures.
"The course sorts out fact from fiction concerning the personal and medical use of Marijuana for the workplace," said Amy Evans, Workplace Training and Business Manager for Lifeloc. "Employers and employees alike will benefit from learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of marijuana use, the safety concerns and what protections the law affords employers. Course content also covers the opposing medical and recreational marijuana positions between the states and the federal government and the implications for employers especially in their treatment of "safety sensitive" jobs. The online course concludes with a review of how employers should address the new laws in their company drug policies.
Amy concluded, "This is the first course that brings the issues around medical and recreational marijuana and the workplace together in a actionable way."
The online course costs $50.00 and can be completed at the students own time and pace, but usually in about an hour. To order online or for more information visit http://www.lifeloc.com/potandtheworkplace.aspx
