Alcohol and drug issues in the workplace, particularly on the road, are extremely dangerous. As well as the road safety risks, there can be legal and insurance consequences if a driver is involved in a crash and is found to have alcohol or drugs (including some prescription drugs) in their system.
VicRoads have worked closely with industry health and safety experts and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to develop a toolkit to help businesses manage the risks of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) in the workplace.
Your free toolkit includes:
- An online policy builder – answer a few questions about your workplace and a tailored, comprehensive policy is generated
- An employer’s guide – contains information to support businesses to successfully implement and manage the policy
- Online education for employees – to help employees understand their obligations to the policy and the impacts of alcohol and other drugs in the workplace.
- Resources – to help you identify and manage alcohol and drug problems in the workplace.
