This substance abuse training program was developed to assist in understanding the impact of alcohol and drug use in the workplace and its effects on safety and health in that environment.
The purpose of this module, "What Can I Do?" is to learn when and how to help a co-worker, family member or friend who may have a substance abuse problem.
The misuse of drugs and alcohol affects EVERYBODY, not just the user. Co-workers can often be a powerful influence on those who are abusing drugs and/or alcohol. By knowing what to do and what not to do, co-workers can make the workplace safer and help their co-workers to get help. This training segment is designed to provide employees with information and tools to help them prevent substance abuse on the job, at home or in the community, and to provide them with resources for support.
