A concise guide to introducing a drugs and alcohol policy, and how to tailor this to your workplace, and what it needs to include. Followed by a practical session on managing the HR aspects of a ‘for cause’ testing scenario and managing the follow up.

Course Outline

This course will include the following:

  • Tailoring a drugs and alcohol policy to your workplace
  • Legal principles, employer and employee obligations
  • How to spot drug or alcohol misuse
  • Supporting employees with drug or alcohol problems
  • Workplace testing and initiating the process
  • Action following a positive result, options available and considerations


We love a good natter and love to gather opinions from our delegates on our courses. Our style is to facilitate rather than to tell. To do this online we therefore like to have everyone on camera and the mics on when needed to be able to hear what everyone has to say. At the end of the day, its your course not ours!

In our experience, for a truly interactive workshop the numbers are best kept to below 12 and ideally between 8 and 10 delegates. This allows for everyone to feel like they have the opportunity to have a say and to enable the content to be worked through in the time allowed.

We like to bring a high level of interactivity to our sessions and include the use of discussions, exercises, quizzes, polls, break out rooms, whiteboards, and annotation. Just like our face-to-face sessions we want to ensure the activities are varied and deliver the content in the best possible way. The sessions will vary between group work, small break out sessions and individual work.

If you are looking for something other than an online workshop, then have a look at our on-demand management development training modules. These provide more in-depth learning on each topic.

Resources Included

We will provide you with a PDF of the workshop slides, copies of relevant handouts and any book recommendations during the session!
