Managing drug and alcohol misuse at work: training scenarios

Organisation: CIPD


Drug and alcohol misuse can be a sign of a mental health concern – for example, addiction, or a ‘self-medication’ for another problem. These substances might affect someone’s work performance or even present a danger to themselves and their colleagues, so it’s important you take the issue seriously if it arises in your workplace.

This PDF guide from CIPD presents three different situations you might be faced with, and asks you to think of the ways your organisation might deal with it. This resource would be an ideal accompaniment to existing training, or as a way to think about what a potential drug and alcohol policy in your organisation might include.
