Alcohol and Drug Awareness - Course Overview

The need to prevent impaired persons from affecting safety in the workplace cannot be overstated. Recent changes in Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Legislation, together with better informed employers, has brought forth a realization that serious attention must be given to ensuring that employees arriving to the workplace are “fit-for-work.”

People do not want to work in an environment where they are or could be at risk due to another worker’s alcohol or drug abuse. While the employer has the primary responsibility of ensuring compliance with relevant OH&S Legislation, it is the duty of both the worker and the employer to comply with it.

This online Alcohol and Drug Awareness course emphasizes the seriousness of being “fit-for-work” and identifies personal responsibilities as they relate to ensuring the health and safety of all workers.

Full-size and wallet-size completion certificates are provided after the successful completion of this course.
