Drug and Alcohol Policy Advice
In addition to enhancing legislative knowledge, advice regarding substance misuse policy documents is important to ensure employers are aware of how to write a legally viable document. This ensures smooth implementation of workplace drug and alcohol testing.
Our consultancy service provides assistance in writing a bespoke substance misuse policy.
Developing an Awareness Among Employees
Developing an awareness of drug and alcohol abuse among employees is an effective starting point to implementing employee testing. It is also an effective tool in answering queries of employees who currently undergo workplace drug and alcohol testing, and communicates the dangers of drug and alcohol consumption at work. In addition, it allows employees to realise the benefits employee testing has in minimising risks. Employer efforts in implementing a substance misuse policy, or continuing employee testing, can then be seen as advantageous with beneficial outcomes.
Our educational services ensure employees understand the benefits of workplace drug and alcohol testing to ensure smooth implementation of employee testing.
Keeping Employees and Management Informed
Keeping employees informed throughout the process of implementing, or changing an existing substance misuse policy is crucial to ensure trust between employer and employees. It ensures all employees are well informed of what a substance misuse policy is, the process involved in carrying out testing and the disciplinary procedures which may result from positive tests. This is beneficial in ensuring employees confidently understand the policy being implemented. In addition it is crucial that management understand their role within the process and what a substance misuse policy means for business.
Our educational services ensure employees are well informed of the existence of a substance misuse policy in their workplace. Our assistance helps employers communicate to their management team and employees effectively the processes and procedures involved.
