Impact of harmful drug and alcohol abuse
The harmful use of alcohol and other drugs can create a range of problems.
For the person using drugs or alcohol, it could result in harm to their physical and mental health and could result in them losing their job and their family.
For workmates it can mean facing risks to their health, safety and welfare. Workmates can also feel they need to cover for poor work performance, or end up having to 'dob in' a mate for their own good.
For the employer, harmful alcohol and drug use can mean:
- decreased productivity, and
- increased costs associated with accidents, inefficiency, and damage to plant or equipment.
