Drugs & Alcohol

Drugs and alcohol in the workplace present significant Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) concerns due to their potential to impair judgment, coordination, and overall job performance, leading to accidents, injuries, or compromised safety. OHS guidelines emphasize implementing clear policies that prohibit the use of drugs and alcohol during work hours or while on the job, including testing measures where appropriate. Education and training programs about the risks of substance abuse, providing support for employees dealing with addiction, and offering resources for rehabilitation or counseling are essential components of OHS strategies to address drugs and alcohol in the workplace. Prioritizing a drug- and alcohol-free workplace creates a safer environment, reduces accidents, and protects the well-being of employees and those around them.
