ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGS WORKPLACE TRAINING

Drugs or alcohol factor in as many as one-in-ten workplace deaths and one‑in‑four reportable workplace accidents. The misuse of these substances is growing across Australian workplaces.

It is a serious work health and safety issue that is not going “to simply go away”.

Employers have a duty of care under the Australian Work Health and Safety Act (2011) to provide a workplace that is free from hazards associated with the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

Committing to action through an ADA Australia Drug and Alcohol Awareness Training Workshop can get the conversation going at your workplace and provide positive strategies for ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all employees, co‑workers and the community.
