Most substance abusers have jobs. In fact, it is estimated that one out of every ten workers has a drug or alcohol problem. Their behavior "under the influence" can decrease productivity, create a hostile work environment and damage a company’s reputation. Worst of all it can significantly increase the chances of workplace incidents and injuries.
Atlantic Training’s "Dealing with Drug and Alcohol Abuse… for Managers and Supervisors" training program discusses drug and alcohol abuse, the damage it causes to workers and the businesses that employ them, and what should be done to create and maintain a drug and alcohol-free workplace.
Topics covered include:
You have to comply with your company’s policy and regulatory requirements, you must monitor your employee’s job performance, be aware of the signs and symptoms of the abuse of alcohol and other drugs and be ready to take the appropriate action if the job performance arises. Monitoring your employee’s job performance is part of your daily routine. If you become aware of the job performance problem notify management and begin documenting of the employee’s behaviour. Keep detailed records of any absenteeism, poor job performance and behavioral or physical changes.
