Under the Influence – Safe & Sober at Work?
February 18, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Location: NSFA Office, East Mountain
The goal of the fitness for duty and substance abuse program is to provide a work environment that is both healthy and comfortable for all its workers. It is recognized that the use of alcohol or drugs may have serious adverse effects on a worker’s health, safety, and job performance. Learn about the requirements for farm owners to ensure workers come to work fit for duty, learn how to lay out that expectation on paper, and ask questions as that may apply to your experiences on the farm. Learn the signs and symptoms of impairment and how to handle difficult situations.
