The EssentialSkillz Drugs and Alcohol at Work eLearning course highlights the main points likely to be in your employer's drug and alcohol policy, as well as your responsibilities to maintain a safe working environment for yourself and others. For example, it covers common circumstances where the employer would intervene and actions that your employer might take if substance use becomes a workplace issue.
But the course also aims to raise awareness of substance misuse, helping people create healthier habits around alcohol consumption and recognise signs of misuse. It outlines the weekly low-risk guidelines advised by both the UK and the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and provides resources so people know where they can get help and support in the UK and ROI if they have or believe they have a substance misuse problem.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Drugs and Alcohol at Work online course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
