Training Overview

Employee substance abuse and the workplace. Learn how to help employees and protect your organization.

October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month and is the ideal time to prevent alcohol and drugs from putting your employees and workplace at risk. According to SAMSHA, over 15.5 million employed individuals admitted to illicit drug use. The Department of Labor estimates that drug and alcohol abuse contribute to an astounding 65% of workplace accidents. Drugs and alcohol cause workers to be less aware and have slow reaction times, putting themselves and their coworkers at risk.

Substance abusers are estimated to be up to ten times more likely to miss work. What many employers don’t know is that the Americans with Disabilities Act covers these employees and not knowing the law will put your organization at risk for lawsuits.
