Why is Drug & Alcohol education important in the workplace?

The use of alcohol and or other drugs in the workplace can affect an individual�s ability to perform in many ways: physical reaction times, manual dexterity, judgement, communication skills and ability to cope with change in the work environment.

Long term, an individual's health and relationships with family, colleagues and the community can also be affected. All of these factors impact on work performance.

Implementation of a workable Drug & Alcohol Policy in the workplace can help minimise the risk of such harms, and allow the workplace to deal effectively with these issues should they arise.


How can DRUG ARM assist your workplace?

CARE can deliver an integrated education package that comprises a number of aspects. This package is tailored specifically to the company's needs. Training can be accompanied by printable user-friendly course material, and sessions can be complemented by information sheets and ongoing educational materials on specific topics for display (eg. noticeboards, intranet).

Training sessions can address some of the following issues:
  • What is the Drug & Alcohol Policy and why is it necessary?
  • What are the effects of some common drugs on individuals in the workplace?
  • How does a supervisor recognise possible effects of drugs on an individual�s workplace performance?
  • What support is available to the affected individual and to the supervisor?
