Does your workplace have a drugs and alcohol policy? Are the purpose and expectations clearly communicated to all staff? With the Christmas and holiday season approaching, now it is more important than ever to communicate with staff about protocol. This is about safety and protection for all, and to have a policy in place where possible, and have it clearly communicated to all staff, would help ensure that. If you are considering forming your own policy, there are many resources online that can assist.
Overall, a workplace drug and alcohol policy should be clear, detailed, and concise to be effective.
