Drug Free Workplace
Presented by: Tom Pool Executive Administrator for Drug Free Business
The stress of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the workplace in many ways, one of which not many have thought of or paid attention to, illicit drug use. Employers in Washington are still within their rights to drug test employees and should do so to continue to provide a safe workplace for all employees. Guest speaker Tom Pool of Drug Free Business talks today about the importance of maintaining a drug free workplace and will offer information on training supervisors and managers to recognize the signs and symptoms of drug abuse at work. Tom worked with the DEA for 21 years and is a retired US Navy Reservist. He has worked with states across the nation on combating drug abuse and co-founded Drug Free Business, where he now serves as the Executive Administrator.
