Substance abuse is a huge, worldwide problem. In the United States alone there are over 5 million binge drinkers, 17 million illegal drug users and almost 15 million people who abuse prescription medications. Most substance abusers have jobs. In fact, it is estimated that one out of every ten workers has a substance abuse problem. An employee with an alcohol or drug problem can decrease productivity, create a hostile work environment and damage a company's good name. Worst of all, the actions of a worker who is "under the influence" can completely undermine a company's efforts to keep people safe. The second in a two-part series on dealing with drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace, the training program "Dealing with Drug and Alcohol Abuse for Managers and Supervisors" discusses the various forms of substance abuse that are typically found in the workplace, how managers and supervisors can detect substance abuse problems, and what they should and shouldn't do if they discover a worker with a substance abuse problem.
The program includes information on:
How substance abuse can affect a workplace
Laws and regulations related to substance abuse
How to help create an alcohol and drug-free workplace
The role of education and testing in preventing substance abuse
Recognizing on-the-job substance abuse
How to handle substance abuse situations
