Training For Drug & Alcohol Awareness and Testing in the Workplace.
Is your company aware and fully up to date with Drug and Alcohol awareness and testing in the workplace? If the answer is no then our training courses might be the answer for you. We can train your nominated staff members in all they need to know about Drug & Alcohol Awareness & Testing Procedures.
Changing needs for drug & alcohol testing in the workplace
On 2 March 2015, the drug driving law changed to make it easier for the police to catch and convict drivers under the influence of drugs. This new roadside test procedure means that all Employers need to be aware of drug and alcohol issues. They also need to consider instituting a drug and alcohol testing strategy for all employees who drive company vehicles.
Delivering cost savings to you
Healthscreen now provides training courses on Drug & Alcohol Awareness and Testing in the Workplace at our training venue in Leicester. Training of your staff to perform drug and alcohol screening will save your company money. Your staff can undertake the screening as part of their normal duties meaning you will not need to use outside contractors.
Delivering a better screening process
The training will also allow your staff to undertake instant screening if the need arises. No waiting for a contractor to attend your business. It also means that you can more easily randomise testing if you wish, again because your employee rather than an outside contractor is undertaking the screening.
