Drugs & Alcohol 

For any organisation, the inappropriate use of drugs or alcohol in a workplace may lead to serious consequences, accidents, poor work performance, increase sickness absence or reduced productivity. Our unique approach places a company's concern with drugs and or alcohol use in the context of their overall commitment to health and safety of staff.

Drugs Awareness workshops / presentations for staff

It is vital that all staff understand the rationale for policy development and what the implications of the policy will be for them. This 90 minute interactive session addresses these issues in an informative and enjoyable manner. The session is ideally suitable for 20 delegates and will include:
  • Up to date information on the effects of drugs and alcohol.
