Work Safe

Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace

Drugs and alcohol are very addictive. Even if employees understand the dangers and impact of substance abuse on their work and lives, quitting is difficult—and sometimes expensive. For many employees, an employee-offered assistance program may be the only viable opportunity for quitting.

Understand your options
Check with local providers on the feasibility of offering a formal, confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in your workplace. If you have a program in place already, remind employees how to use it and that it is completely confidential. Invite a representative from your EAP to speak to employees about just how easy it is to get help.

If a formal, structured EAP is too costly for your workplace, first consider the expense of a drug or alcohol-related accident. If it still seems too expensive, explore online offerings and other options for helping employees confidentially.
