MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge has announced the addition of two new modules to its library of online training courses: Drug and Alcohol Testing Overview; and Drug and Alcohol: Reasonable Suspicion Testing.
The Drug and Alcohol Testing Overview takes a comprehensive look at the effects of drugs and alcohol, the testing process and the consequences of a positive test. The full-length course is designed for drivers and supervisors, CarriersEdge announced.
Drug and Alcohol: Reasonable Suspicion Testing, focuses specifically on supervisor responsibilities. It outlines the supervisor’s role in the testing process, the importance of appropriate documentation, and signs of alcohol and controlled substance abuse.
“Drug and alcohol awareness is a hot topic on both sides of the border”, said Jane Jazrawy, vice-president, product development at CarriersEdge. “The publicly available information is often complex and confusing, so it’s a real challenge for fleets to understand what’s required of them and communicate it to staff. These courses provide a clear, concise picture of the process, helping to ensure that both drivers and their supervisors understand how to stay compliant.”
CarriersEdge subscription customers will automatically receive both courses as part of their subscriptions. Courses can also be purchased individually through CarriersEdge partners. For more info, visit www.carriersedge.com.
