Drugs in the Workplace


Are you aware?


The incidence of drug misuse in the community can adversely affect your business. These are facts, not opinions, and you have a legal responsibility to react…!


It can influence your ability to attract competent local labour. Drugs can affect the misusers themselves, where they work, their co-workers and customers. Your Group and Colleagues’ safety can be compromised. The drug user/supplier could be hiding their supply of drugs in your workplace.


There are NO stereotypical misusers, they are as likely to be found in the boardroom as on the shop floor, in the office or in the sales force.


It is estimated that in the UK, 35% of people under the age of 40 have experimented with drugs and 25% of these are in employment. There can be few workplaces without some employee who uses illegal drugs.


Drugs affect cognitive and psycho-motor skills. Anyone under the direct influence of illegal drugs or suffering from withdrawal symptoms can place themselves and others at risk.


Misuse of Drugs Act 1971


Owners or Managers of property may be liable if they allow their property/premises to be used for the taking, supplying or offering to supply controlled drugs albeit unwittingly.



Health and Safety at Work Act 1974


This places an obligation on employers to take reasonable care for the health and safety of their workers and the health and safety of the general public who may be affected by work activities.
