Drug and Alcohol Testing in the Workplace Webinar
Research by the charity Alcohol Change reveals that alcohol misuse costs the UK around £7bn every year in lost productivity. Misuse of drugs can also adversely affect workplace performance and put your employees, colleagues, and customers at risk.
With evidence suggesting that people’s consumption of alcohol and drugs has increased while working remotely during the pandemic, the landscape for risk assessment has changed. Now that coronavirus lockdown restrictions are being lifted and working patterns are changing again, there has never been a better time to review your policies.
It is essential to ensure that you adopt the right approach for your workplace and identify how best to provide support for individuals who may be experiencing issues with alcohol and drug misuse. However, we understand that it can be difficult to identify employees who may be struggling, and that you may not be aware of the measures you can put in place to screen and test your workforce to keep everyone safe.
In our recent webinar, James Clark, one of Hampton Knight’s trainers who works with our clients nationwide, gave attendees the facts about the impact of substance misuse at work, discussed how to spot the signs, explored the steps you can take to mitigate the risks to your business and explained how to implement Drug and Alcohol Testing in your workplace.
