Training and Education

Employee & Management Training

It is important that a comprehensive training and education programme is used to communicate details of a company drug and alcohol policy to employees before introduction; indeed such communication of a change in policy is a legal requirement. Trade Unions are generally more supportive of the policy if open and comprehensive training of employees takes place.

Both managers and staff should be trained in aspects of substance misuse.

We can provide manager and employee training sessions covering:

  • Alcohol – facts, effects and problems;
  • Drugs – what are the common drugs of abuse? How do they affect an individual;
  • How can you recognize signs of drug abuse;
  • How do these drugs affect performance at work.

Sessions can be tailored to your needs and can range from drugs and alcohol awareness presentations to short ‘road-show’ style information opportunities.

Employers (Managers) & Employees Training is fully supported with literature/information packs.
