Supervisors will learn observation techniques for common performance problems and how to document their observations.

The employee and supervisor class each meet the one-hour training component of the BWC Drug-Free Safety Program and are approved for one hour credit in Health and Safety by OCILB. Discounts are offered for companies sending five or more participants.
