Managing alcohol and other drug use in the workplace 

If someone is impaired in the workplace they can put themselves or others at risk. Impairment can occur due to lack of sleep, stress, relationship breakdowns, emotionally difficult time, medications or alcohol and drug use. Health and Safety legislation requires employers to ensure a safe working environment for all employees, an aspect of which is mitigating risk of impairment. In a safety critical worksite employers can legally drug test employees as the risk of serious injury or death is high.
