    Drug & Alcohol

    Not only is there a legal obligation to provide a safer work environment, but drug and alcohol misuse can also have a huge negative impact on productivity and costs to your business.

    The detrimental effects drugs and alcohol can have in the workplace has been outlined in studies and papers released by the Department of Health and various other government departments which have shown:

    • 76% of drug abusers are employed and the cost of employing a drug abuser can be significantly higher than that of a non-drug user due to lower productivity. In addition, this can result in more lost work days (with 17 million working days being lost each year nationwide).
    • Drug abusing staff will have a higher turnover and therefore increase training and recruitment costs alongside the possible introduction of rehabilitation costs and increased medical costs.
    • The rate of incidents and compensation claims will increase.
    • There is an increased risk of drug abusers selling drugs to work colleagues that would in-turn increase the drug-related problems in the workplace.
