Where do we help?
Employers are responsible for creating a safe working environment. Many organisations implement a policy that outlines the expectations they have concerning drug and alcohol misuse and how this can affect performance and safety in the workplace. This is known as a substance misuse policy.
We help with the creation and implementation of your drug and alcohol policy, including testing, training and policy review.
The policy itself holds a vital importance providing employees with the knowledge of the standards expected of them in the workplace.
To ensure transparency, it’s imperative that the policy is written in a clear, comprehensive manner. This enables employees to clearly understand implications the organisation has in place for users who misuse substances.
