High in Plain Sight: Current Drug, Impairment and Impaired Driving Trends
April 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
Officer Jermaine Galloway – who is 6-foot-9 and better known as the Tall Cop who Says Stop – will address the impact of new and evolving drugs on impairment, looking at issues related to safe driving, workplace performance and everyday life. He will pay particular attention to over-the-counter drugs that few ever have heard of and often fly under the microscope of drug tests but can produce the same type of side effects as opioids and amphetamines. He will talk about the importance of recognizing the signs of impairment so safety managers can raise red flags, and he will offer suggestions for improving your workplace drug testing program. He also will highlight dangers associated with new “legal” cannabis products, including THC and CBD, and how use of these products is contributing to rising impaired driving crash statistics.
