50 million binge drinkers, 17 million illegal drug users and almost 15 million people who abuse prescription drugs… and most of them have jobs
Dealing with Drug and Alcohol Abuse… for Managers and Supervisors in Construction Environments discusses drug and alcohol abuse, the damage it causes to workers and the businesses that employ them, and what should be done to create and maintain a drug and alcohol free job site. Most substance abusers have jobs. In fact, it is estimated that one out of every ten employees has a drug or alcohol problem. A construction worker’s behavior “under the influence” can decrease productivity, create a hostile work environment and damage their company’s reputation. Worst of all it can significantly increase the chances of worksite accidents, injuries and fatalities.
Topics covered in this program:
Substance abuse can affect a job site; which substances are abused; laws you need to know about; creating a drug and alcohol-free job site; education and testing, recognizing on-the-job substance abuse; and more.
