Drug-Free Workforce Community Initiative – Technical Assistance Course

FACT SHEET: TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE COURSE

THE PROBLEM: “WE CAN’T FIND WORKERS.”

Finding healthy, drug-free workers is difficult for many companies in our community – in part, due to the fact that job seekers and employees are failing drug tests at a record-setting number. In response, Hancock County has joined forces with 16 other communities throughout Ohio to address this problem through the Working Partners® Drug-Free Workforce Community Initiative (DFWCI).

THE OPPORTUNITY: A FREE Technical Assistance Course

A keystone activity of the DFWCI is to offer, free of charge, a technical assistance course to five companies in our community. The outcome of the two-day technical assistance course is that each participating company will be educated and guided through a process to develop (or refine) a state-of-the art and legally sound drug-free workplace policy/program (DFWP) that will:

  1. Save you time and money.
  2. Give you systems to attract and keep quality employees.
  3. Increase insulation against corporate liability.
  4. Provide a roadmap to administer an effective and efficient DFWP policy/program.
  5. Position you as a leader in the community — taking action to improve our community’s employable workforce.

Topics covered in this graduate-level course include drug trends impacting the workforce/workplace, legal issues impacting a DFWP program (e.g., Ohio’s marijuana law, ADA, DOT, OSHA), and best practices of operationalizing a policy/program.

NUTS AND BOLTS.

The two-day course will be held at the Findlay Inn (200 E. Main Cross St., Findlay, OH) on November 1 & 15, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (lunch provided). Selected businesses must be willing to:

  1. Complete an application.
  2. Send one – three key decision-makers to both days of classroom education and technical assistance. At least one of the key decision-makers must be the same person attending both days of the course.
  3. Allow business name and images to be used in promotional materials.
