With the right policy in place, you can help prevent problems with alcohol and drugs abuse in the workplace. The illicit use of drugs and alcohol can have a substantial impact not only on the employee in question but also on co-workers, the entire organisation, and society. By clearly outlining the associated risks, you can develop effective prevention measures and establish clear agreements with all your workers.


Alcohol and drug abuse poses a number of risks on the safety and health of workers. Not only does it produce an adverse effect in terms of output and performance, it also impacts their interaction with colleagues and increases overall absenteeism rates. In addition, alcohol and drug abuse increases the risk of accidents and conflicts.
