When workers are under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication or illegal substances on the job, companies face several risks. Impaired employees may have decreased productivity and work quality, cause dissatisfaction among internal and external customers, and negatively impact employee morale. Substance use in the workplace can also lead directly to safety risks and liability claims.
Supervisors need to be alert to these risks, understand how to recognize substance use and abuse, and maintain compliance with company policies and procedures. Failing to implement best practices to prevent accidents and limit risk related to substance use can be a costly and time-consuming mistake.
