About Our 5-Star Reasonable Suspicion Training Programs

According to new Canadian Substance Use Costs and Harms (CSUCH) data, lost productivity due to substance use cost $22.4 billion in 2020. This cost accounts for 45.6% of the $49.1 billion in overall cost and harms of substance use in Canada during that year.

Many employers focus their efforts solely on drug and alcohol testing and overlook the importance of educating their employees about substance abuse in the workplace. SureHire’s Reasonable Suspicion Training programs offer a simple, cost-effective solution.
