How Alcohol and Drug training can benefit your workplace
If there’s alcohol or drug misuse at work, your employees could be at risk as it could potentially cause an accident if your workers are not fit to perform their job safely. As a result of misuse, there would be a loss of productivity and your employee would perform poorly at their job, which could hold your whole team back. There could also be an increase in bad behaviour as it could lead to absences or lateness and even poor discipline.

When can you do drug or alcohol testing?
There are three main types of drug tests you can do: pre-employment, random and with-cause tests. Pre-employment tests are when a test is done before an employees start date. Random tests are when various employees are selected randomly to be tested; this has been known to be a good deterrent for drug use. On the other hand, with-cause tests are the complete opposite as it’s specific to a person. These happen when something has happened to raise alarms such as an incident that has caused damage or a near miss. By doing a drug test, it can protect employees from liability when employees injure themselves as it would fall under the fault of drug misuse.
