Organisations large or small, private or public sector – can expect to have to tackle problems relating to drug and alcohol misuse among employees at some time. It has been estimated that problems caused by drug and alcohol misuse cost UK industry £800 million per year.
Problems caused by drug and alcohol misuse disrupt business continuity and can cause financial instability in business, with more severe consequences to employees health, safety and welfare.
All organisations have a duty of care to their employees. Drug and alcohol misuse can not only destroy the individual concerned, but can also have an extremely detrimental effect on the wider workforce, clients and customers and the organisation’s performance.
Organisations must be aware of the potential problems and be confident that they have the background knowledge and robust policies in place to deal with individual cases. The objective should be to drive drugs and alcohol out of the organisation, not the people.
Implementation of a robust drug and alcohol testing programme is key, but it is also crucial to have a compliant policy in place to underpin this process.
