April Webinar: Redefining Workplace Impairment – A Treatment Provider’s Perspective

April 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Employers have traditionally understood the definition of “impairment” to be the result of intoxicants, fatigue, and/or an underlying medical condition that compromises motor control and cognition. In May 2020, the National Safety Council challenged this definition by surveying 350 professionals, each with decision-making authority. More than 90 percent of the respondents agreed on some level that the definition of “impairment” should be broadened to include mental illness and chronic stress, or any factor that compromises a worker’s ability to “function normally or safely”.

In this webinar, Ryan West, MS, CEAP, SAP, CFI, Director of Corporate Training ARCpoint Labs, will discuss the connection between chronic stress, mental illness, and substance misuse, detail common signs of each, and review how to leverage employer, community-based, and online resources for impairment prevention, treatment, and recovery. The critical role of drug testing as an identification and accountability tool for individuals in need of help is also emphasized.
