Supplier: LaneWorkSafe

To meet employer's lawful Occupational Health and Safety obligations LaneWorkSafe has specifically written two Alcohol and other Drug(s) tutorials. Alcohol is a legal drug, so are over-the-counter and prescription medications. However, when their use is abused it can cause serious ramifications to any workplace; as does the use of illegal narcotics. Both LaneWorkSafe tutorials are written in plain English and have been prepared by industry and health experts.

Your Road Map to our Tutorials

The most in-depth tutorial has been written for Managers and Supervisors, explaining and empowering them on how to deal with workplace impairment issues.

The secondary tutorial is for all other employees, new inductees and contractors.

Purpose
Both tutorials clearly explain to employees their employer's Drug and Alcohol Policy and what that means in the workplace.

There is a responsibility at Law for all members of staff to undertake education in OHS risk reduction and management initiatives taken to reduce workplace risk. No one wishes to see an accident or death occur in the workplace.

For Managers and Supervisors a specifically written tutorial clearly explains how issues of impairment can be legally addressed and resolved. This includes the operation of; and, the procedure to be followed when conducting a workplace alcohol test using a breath analyser.

Objective
By undertaking either of the tutorials all employees receive in-depth education on how the use of drugs can affect their work performance. Impairment from drug abuse can lead to serious accident, or even death. It can also lead to a dysfunctional workplace. The objective of each tutorial is to heighten employee awareness and decrease the possibility of injury or death.

By Managers and Supervisors having the knowledge in how to identify and deal with employees at risk from substance abuse inappropriate situations can be avoided.

In the past many Managers and Supervisors simply have not had the training or the tools to address difficult questions, such as:

  • What do I do if I think an employee is affected by drugs?
  • What is a third party tells me a fellow employee is using drugs?
  • What do I do if I find narcotics on the premises?
  • How do I identify narcotic users?
  • How do I handle the awkward situation?

The tutorial written for Managers and Supervisors answer all of these questions and much more.

LaneWorkSafe provides a systematic framework to correctly identify and resolve workplace substance abuse issues. This successful education program helps eliminate difficult situations when impairment may be deemed a workplace safety issue.
