About This Course s-mod-info

Drug and alcohol use in the workplace poses serious risks to both individuals and overall safety. Impaired individuals are more prone to accidents, resulting in injuries to themselves and others around them. Training can help educate employees about the risks and consequences of drug and alcohol use to maintain a safe and compliant work environment.

Our course contains a comprehensive overview of various drugs and their effects, the impact of alcohol on the body, the risks associated with mixing drugs, including over-the-counter medications, with alcohol, and measures for preventing and controlling drug use and alcohol consumption at the workplace. Additionally, resources are provided for employees seeking assistance for themselves or their loved ones dealing with drug and alcohol abuse.
