“We have an incredible safety record; no OSHA recordables for the 6 years I’ve been here and I attribute that to Axiom’s involvement.

The nurses are so wonderful and so attuned to the Employees and help them return to work safely after an injury. They listen very well and the education is the most important. Our employees and managers love them.

Thank you for all that you do.

“You know, Ryan’s behavior seems a little bit peculiar today,” you think to yourself.  I wonder if he could be under the influence of something.”

As a supervisor working closely with employees, you are often the first line of defense when it comes to recognizing signs of drug or alcohol impairment and maintaining a safe work environment.

Approaching an employee who may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol is your responsibility.

Without initiating reasonable suspicion testing, you could be putting him/her, and other employees at risk of injury.

When confronting the employee, expect the excuse.

They may lie, defend their behavior or skirt around the issue in an attempt to avoid reasonable suspicion testing.

Take a look at five of the most common excuses given:

How to Handle Excuses

If you encounter employee explanations for impaired behavior, it’s important to have trained managers who are able to make a decision as to whether reasonable suspicion testing is warranted.

Whether testing is performed or not, it is vital that the employer’s actions are consistent and documented.
