DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AT WORK
PLEASE NOTE: The above preview is the North American version. If you purchase this program you will receive the Australian version.
Drugs and Alcohol are a problem in the workplace. The object of this program is to identify some of the problems and to look at a variety of options available to handle this issue.
These are just some of the facts:
• Of all people with alcohol or other drug-related problems, 60% - 70% are in full-time employment • Of all workplace fatalities 15% - 30% are related to alcohol and other drugs • Of all workplace accidents 20% - 30% involve people in an intoxicated state • People with alcohol and drug problems have 200% - 300% more absenteeism than other employees
Included in the program:
• Definition of what is a workplace alcohol and drug problem • Safety and productivity issues associated with alcohol and drug problems • Identification of problems • Issues of confidentiality • Drug and Alcohol Testing • Self-denial
It is commonly agreed that at least 10% of the entire workforce suffers from some form of drug dependency problem. This 10% figure is also seen by most to be on the increase.
