About The Event

Presentation: The Challenge of Substance Abusers - Managing Behavioral Problems in the Workplace

A recent study finds high rates of combined opioids and methamphetamine use in Oregon. The state’s legalization of marijuana has created a cannabis culture that has employers rethinking their substance abuse policies.

Employers are responsible for providing a safe workplace for all employees. This 90-minute training will assist supervisors in recognizing their responsibility to identify and correct unsafe actions that could be a result of substance use on the part of the employees they supervise.

Speaker: Jerry Gjesvold, Manager of Employer Services, Serenity Lane

Jerry has been employed at Serenity Lane since 1979 and specializes in matters of policy and procedures related to the management of alcohol and other drug problems in business and

industry. He has been a consultant and trainer for companies for over 35 years.
