This month’s training topic is something that may not be typically talked about: Substance Abuse in the Workplace.
The fact that some people use substances such as alcohol or illicit drugs, or that some people misuse prescription drugs is not new. The awareness that the abuse of substances may affect the workplace just as the workplace may affect substance abuse is, however, increasing in acceptance.
Many aspects of the workplace today require alertness, and accurate and quick reflexes. An impairment to these qualities can cause serious accidents, to the public or to the employee, and interfere with the accuracy and efficiency of work.
As an employer, we need to be aware of Americans with Disabilities Act protections of employees for the legal use of prescription drugs and HIPAA protections of employees’ medical information.
