Free Training for Businesses and Agencies on Safe and Drug Free Workplaces

Dayton, Nevada – Jo McGuire, an international speaker on drug screening and marijuana legalization, will offer a free training on Monday February 12th, from 8:30am-10:30am at the Dayton Community Center 170 Pike Street for any businesses and agencies interested in maintaining a safe and drug free workplace. With recent changes in marijuana laws, the workplace drug policy is the single most important tool an employer has for guidance on appropriate responses to employee drug use. You’ll learn policy tips to avoid liability situations, to keep your workplace safe and drug-free, and most importantly, to develop peace of mind in your day-to-day operations.

Jo McGuire has been the keynote speaker for several conferences in regards to marijuana and the workplace, advises policy makers on employer’s rights to a safe and drug-free workplace, and provides certified training for the drug screening industry. She served on the Governor’s Task Force in Colorado during the recent constitutional amendment in her home state and has chaired the Marijuana Education and Outreach committee of the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA).

Employee drug use costs employers millions of dollars in lost revenue,” McGuite notes. “Legal marijuana causes workplace challenges that every employer needs to be aware of in order to protect profitability and reduce loss. My workshops show you trends that will change the way you do business. If you are confused about legal marijuana – find clarity with me.”

The free training is made possible, in part, through a grant from the Division of Public and Behavioral Health and through the Nevada Statewide Coalition Partnership, Nevada Behavioral Health Association, and Healthy Communties Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties.
