October 18-24 is National Drug-Free Work Week, a time to highlight the benefits that Drug-Free Workplace programs bring to employers, workers, and communities.
Keeping Your Worksite Drug and Alcohol Free
When a worker is impaired by the use of drugs or alcohol, he or she threatens the safety and well-being of everyone at a worksite. To do your part to protect workplace safety:
- Understand your company's Drug-Free Workplace Policy. Follow it and set a good example.
- Seek help if you and/or your co-worker(s) need it.
- Notify management if you observe use of or impairment from drugs or alcohol that could threaten the health and safety of co-workers.
