Alcohol and Other Drug Awareness for Managers and Supervisors
Iowa’s drug testing law (Iowa Code Section 730.5, paragraph 9.h. and Administrative Code Section 640) enhances worker safety by creating drug & substance free workplaces. One tool available to private sector employers is drug testing (inclusive of alcohol testing). An employer who chooses to use this tool must attend a minimum of two hours of initial training, and a minimum of one hour annually for update or refresher training. This training meets the initial two-hour training requirement and includes information concerning the recognition of evidence of employee alcohol and/or other drug abuse, the documentation and corroboration of alcohol and/or other drug abuse, and the referral of employees who abuse alcohol and/or other drugs to the employee assistance program or to the resource file maintained by the employer pursuant to paragraph “c”, subparagraph (2) of the Iowa Code. This course satisfies the requirements for supervisor training.
