Drug & Alcohol Free Workplace Training

The 2012 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse estimated the number of users of illicit drugs in the United States ages 12 and over to be about 24 million. In addition, the survey estimated 6.8% of Americans abuse or are dependent on alcohol. A majority of these individuals are in the workforce. So, how does this effect you?  The U.S. Department of Labor estimates workers who abuse drugs or alcohol are three and a half times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident compared to individuals who do not. In fact, 47% of industrial injuries are directly related to alcohol abuse or alcoholism so substance abuse is a problem that affects the safety of all employees and the workplace. This drug and alcohol free workplace training course details ways to recognize possible substance abuse, steps organizations can take to prevent substance abuse, how to get help, and the appropriate reporting procedures.
