Alcohol and other drugs

February 19, 2019

Drugs, alcohol and other substance abuse in the workplace is, as with any health and safety risk, everyone's responsibility.

Employees unfit for work due to alcohol or other drug use put themselves and other people in the workplace at risk of harm. This is the case whether the drugs were taken outside of work or in the workplace.

A formal alcohol and drugs policy makes it clear to all workers what behaviour is acceptable. HIA's Workplace Drug and Alcohol Policy, available to members at a discounted rate as part of our HR Docs range, complies with Safe Work NSW's best practice guidelines and helps employers to prioritise the wellbeing of all workplace participants.
