Drug and Alcohol Education and Awareness for Employees

Overview

When introducing a drug and alcohol program, it is important that all employees are educated not just about the workplace drug and alcohol policy, but that they understand what defines a drug and how drugs can affect health and safety in the workplace. This training ensures that employees understand why drug and alcohol programs are implemented in the workplace and allows them to make informed decisions about their use of drugs and/or alcohol.

AusHealth Work’s Drug and Alcohol Education and Awareness for Employees can be modified to suit the specific needs of your workplace. All sessions include:

  • Alcohol education and awareness; and
  • Drug education and awareness.

With the option to include information about AusHealth Work’s testing process:

  • Breath alcohol screening and oral fluid collection and testing; or
  • Breath alcohol screening and urine collection and testing.

Sessions provide managers and employees with the opportunity to learn about the drug testing process (if applicable). The session informs participants about their rights and obligations, confidentially, privacy and important aspects of the Australian Standards (AS 3547, AS/NZS 4308 and AS 4760). All sessions are conducted by our team of experienced trainers.
