The abuse and mis-use of drugs & alcohol in the workplace is a common issue, especially since employees have to consent to drug tests to receive them. Employers cannot enforce drug tests unless it is necessary for their work and is part of the employment contract.
This course improves drugs and alcohol mis-use outcomes through helping users understand the laws, consequences, and actions to take for substance abuse in the workplace.
About 45% of workers aged 16 to 29, and around 40% of workers under 40 years have experimented with illegal drugs in the workplace. More than 10 million adults also drink alcohol in unhealthy amounts, according to a government survey.
This shows that drugs & alcohol awareness needs to be raised and people should be informed on the consequences of mis-using these substances.
