This book provides professionals with the confidence and know how to build a complete substance misuse programme and deliver it within their respective workplace, regardless of sector or discipline.
Organisations are frequently in the dark about their rights and obligations where substance misuse takes place in their workplace, affects performance, employee wellbeing or in extreme cases has a devastating impact on both the company and its employees. There is no formal training for HR professionals, Occupational Health professionals, Health and Safety professionals, Solicitors, Union representatives and many more situations. This book is written in such a way that it helps those professions, as well as individuals, understand the step by step process with all individual elements that provide a complete workplace substance and alcohol misuse programme.
Managing Workplace Substance Misuse is written by the UK’s only registered expert witness for substance misuse policy writing, implementation and mediation. With decades of expertise and first-hand experience of implementing effective policies in some of the UK and world’s biggest organisations, Trevor Hall helps all organisations navigating this complex problem, offering consultancy advice and a roadmap to policy development and its implementation, providing you with a comprehensive consultancy in one volume. He explains, too, the central role industry and commerce plays in the identification of substance misuse and the rehabilitation of staff; as well as what organisations can do to protect themselves from the culpability of getting things wrong in a litigious society.
