What’s the course about?

Drugs and Alcohol

Substance abuse is a complex problem and when that problem enters the workplace, it can become extremely destructive. The misuse of drugs and alcohol affects not only the person that is involved and their family and friends, but also their co-workers, management and ultimately the business they work for.

Under the Health & Safety at Work Act, employers can be prosecuted if they know an employee is under the influence of alcohol or drugs and they are allowed to continue working, therefore putting co-workers at risk. So, the importance of making employees aware of their responsibilities cannot be underestimated.

This drugs and alcohol awareness e-learning course provides learners with all the information they need to help manage issues surrounding drugs and alcohol in the workplace, helping to raise awareness and deal with issues effectively.
