Alcohol & drugs misuse in the workplace

  • 25% of all accidents at work are drug and alcohol related
  • 17 million working days per annum are lost through drug or alcohol related problems
  • 60% of all fatalities at work are drug or alcohol related

Workplace substance misuse policies (drug and alcohol policy) are recognised as having a major impact in dealing with the problems associated with inappropriate use of drugs and alcohol in the workplace. They reduce accidents, long-term sickness and compensation claims, whilst providing complete guidelines for company employees.
