Drug and Alcohol Testing Awareness Training

Drug & Alcohol Awareness and Employee Education and Training

If you have a Drug and Alcohol policy or are thinking of implementing one, then it is important to raise awareness and educate staff including informing them of both the company’s obligations and their individual responsibilities concerning drugs and alcohol within the workplace.

Furthermore it reduces the ambiguity that can exist in the understanding among employers and employees of what is unacceptable, alongside providing guidance of what action can be taken when someone is involved with or accused of drug or alcohol misuse within the workplace.
