Call for volunteers: Impairment safety training
Itasca, IL — Frontline supervisors and managers play a key role in protecting worker health and safety. The National Safety Council has developed a training program that gives supervisors and managers the knowledge they need to address use/misuse of alcohol, opioids and other illicit drugs, and prescription medication; fatigue; stress; and other impairing factors that may place workers at risk of injury.
As part of the training program, participants will learn about the common causes, signs and symptoms of impairment; impairment prevention strategies; the role supervisors play in addressing impairment; and appropriate supervisory actions to take in response to incidents of impairment.
NSC is looking for frontline supervisors and managers to volunteer for a pilot program to help make the training more relevant and impactful. Please forward this request to anyone who you believe fits the role. Pilot participants will be asked to complete the training online and share their feedback with NSC researchers. Those who successfully complete the pilot will receive a $50 gift card.
