Tools to Introduce Impairment Testing to your Company

Employers know all too well how some of the greatest ideas - even ones that benefit their workers - can be received with a thud. Hopefully not a rebellion.

Not many people like change. That's why managers need to listen to their workers and partner with them for a common good. New technology and procedures need to be introduced with care and attentiveness. The best way to do this is to educate workers on WHY this change is needed.

Impairment Testing is a relatively new concept. The benefit to workers of the new paradigm needs to be communicated. Instead of stigmatizing drug and alcohol tests, impairment testing doesn't care about WHY someone is impairment, it's simply about are you able to do your job safely.

Employers are beginning to embrace this new way of thinking. Organizations like the National Safety Council (NSC) working to educate both employees and employers. Technology providers are putting forth innovative solutions and working to educate their customers.
