Drug Use In The Work Place – November 15 Breakfast.

Navigating the 21st century “ICE AGE”
 
Presenter: Michael White. Founder & CEO of DrugSafe Australia
New Chamber sponsor & member.

The use of alcohol and drugs can impact work places a number of ways including compromising safety, lower productivity and conflict in relationships.

According to statistics, alcohol and other drugs cost businesses an estimated $6Bn in lost productivity each year.

An estimated 2.5 million work days are lost at a cost of over $680 million.

1 in 10 workers say they have experienced the negative effects associated with a co-worker influenced by alcohol.

The effects include reduced ability to do their job, being involved in a ‘close call’ or work place accident, taking days off which places more work load on co-workers and in cases leads to increased operating costs when overtime is required or outside workers are brought in.

With two decades of experience in detecting and advising on work place drug use, Michael White will help employers to better understand drug use in their business and the best course of action to take.
