Substances, whether they’re illegal drugs, alcohol or legally prescribed or over-the-counter medications, can negatively impact the work environment, creating safety risks, decreased work performance and reputational damage. Prevention starts with an organization’s employees. And that’s exactly where NAVEX Global’s Drug-Free Workplace course begins.

This course helps all employees, regardless of their industry or role in the organization, to understand the critical role they play in keeping the workplace free from the negative impacts of substance abuse.

Substance abuse in the workplace can be a serious problem – and effective training can help by providing employees with the knowledge and resources to maintain a safe, productive and drug-free work environment.
