Alcohol and drugs in the workplace
Barbara Butler brings together in one convenient source the guidance companies, health professionals and lawyers require to develop effective workplace policies regarding substance use. The book provides a distinctly Canadian perspective and provides information on why policies are needed and how to develop them.
It addresses: drug and alcohol consumption patterns and the signs and symptoms of drug use; national, provincial and private sector initiatives as they affect the workplace as well as U.S. efforts that may impact upon Canadian business operators; the legal considerations that underlie the need to develop a company alcohol and drug policy.
It provides: guidance on the policy development process; what should go into a workplace policy and ways in which it can be implemented; employee education, awareness and assistance; programs and methods of problem identification; the entire range of alcohol and drug detection options.
