Toxicology Pearls for Human Resource Professionals
Monday morning comes around and you are contacted by a manager about an employee believed to be impaired. The next step may be a mandatory drug test. What do you need to know to about such tests? Does it matter what the timing of the drug or alcohol level was? If a drug test was done, what do the results mean? Are there false positives? Do the drug levels correlate with level of impairment?
 “Toxicology Pearls for Human Resource Professionals” will give a broad overview of what you need to know about the effects of alcohol as well as common street and prescription drugs on the body, the limitations of drug screens, how alcohol absorption can be delayed or increased, and the connection between drug levels and level of impairment. There is so much to know about the science behind drug and alcohol related impairment but this activity will start with some basic principles for HR professionals to help you understand the science behind these types of cases.

Learning objectives:
  1. List the expected effects on the body from common street and prescription drugs.  
  2. Differentiate between drug/alcohol levels obtained from blood, urine, breath.  
  3. Identify common false positives when interpreting drug screen results. 4.
  4. Assess the utility of drug levels for commonly encountered street and legal drugs.  
  5. Describe the correlation between drug and alcohol levels and level of impairment.
