Objectives

The objective of the training programme is to develop the following:
• Policies and Procedures for responding to workplace intoxicants (defined as drugs and alcohol).
• Conducting intoxicant risk assessment and control measures.
• Managing reasonable suspicion for managers and supervisors (when an employee reports for or is on duty under the influence of an intoxicant).
• Health surveillance for intoxicants, employee information, employee support services and employee assistance programmes.
• Procedures for intoxicant testing.

Content

Over the past number of years the EAP Institute has developed a prominent position in the provision of consulting and training for companies who wish to comply with Section 13(1) b of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. This section of the Act requires that, where a manager or supervisor has reasonable suspicion that an employee reports for or is on duty is under the influence of an intoxicant (defined as drugs and alcohol or any combination of drugs or alcohol) they may be removed from their place of work.

Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodation when employees are removed from their place of work. This requires an objective assessment, to determine if the employee is suffering from a disability and afforded, when appropriate, the opportunity for treatment and rehabilitation.
