National - Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace - Training for Trainers


This intensive course, with pre-course learning, will cover:

- The business case for addressing alcohol and drug use at work

- The roles and responsibilities of managers and supervisors

- The importance of developing a robust policy

- The information and knowledge required to deliver this workshop

Increasingly workplaces are recognising the impact that alcohol and drugs can have on their business. This includes the harm to employees, lost productivity, absenteeism, accidents and injuries as well as wider societal effect. Taking action to reduce alcohol related harm makes good business sense.

Training managers and having robust policies are two effective ways to take action.  It is critical that those managing staff have the confidence to handle any issues which arise and know how to implement the organisation's policy effectively

This course has been developed to support businesses to develop a sustainable approach to deal with alcohol and drug problems in the workplace. It will provide you with the knowledge, skills and materials to deliver a 3 hour workshop to managers and supervisors.

Course participants must have prior experience of delivering training and be willing to undertake a range of pre-course learning before attendance at the one day face to face session. A short application form is required prior to a place being confirmed.

Estimated study time for this course is 12 hour; 7 hours face to face and 5 hours pre-course learning.
