Drug and alcohol policies must be a safety issue

Drug and alcohol consumption is a major source of risk for many industries, particularly those with high rates of workplace injuries. One in 10 Australians regularly drink to the risk of harm and a similar number have consumed alcohol at work.

Drug and alcohol policies can be essential for managing this risk and often incorporate tools such as drug testing. But a well-designed policy must be based on improving workplace safety and should be crafted with input from a wide range of stakeholders, including employees, to avoid damaging workers’ trust.
