Training & Policy Development
Over our 20 years in business we have successfully introduced substance abuse prevention programs to both large and small corporations, union and non-union work forces across Canada. We are firm believers that drug and alcohol testing combined with education and access to assistance can and does provide a safer work environment. A safe work environment means healthy and productive workers, which translates into healthy families and communities.
Drug Awareness Training
A Substance Abuse Prevention Policy is most effective when supervisors and managers are trained in recognizing the signs and symptoms of substance abuse. In addition, training your employees to understand your policy is proven to enhance your Substance Abuse Program.
Recognizing Signs and Symptoms
ECS offers a 4 hour course designed to educate supervisors or managers on the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use. We provide the information and knowledge regarding testing options, standards and procedures to make the supervisor/manager comfortable with the concept of workplace drug and alcohol testing.
ECS offers a 2 hour employee orientation course designed to provide information about drug and alcohol testing, company policy, procedures and consequences of policy violation. The effects of various drugs are discussed with emphasis on alcohol, marijuana and cocaine.

Designed for Managers, Designated Employer Representatives (DER), HR Professionals and any others directly involved in implementing substance abuse policies is our Advanced Substance Abuse Awareness Course.

We can customize any one of our courses as well as create and implement a course specifically to meet your needs.
