ALCOHOL & SUBSTANCE MISUSE

Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance, and the majority of people with a drinking problem are in the workplace.

This standard focuses on areas such as:-
  • The workplace has a policy or statement on alcohol and substance misuse, together with health information for employees and workers. This information includes the overlap with mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • The workplace supports staff that are seeking help to assess or treat alcohol or substance misuse. This includes sources of further information and support that are readily available
  • New employees and workers are made aware of how to access relevant policies, information and support services at the point of induction
  • Staff have access to alcohol and drug awareness sessions.

ALCOHOL AND SUBSTANCE MISUSE

Level 1 – has three criteria sections
Level 2 – has one criteria sections
Level 3 – has three criteria sections


There is a natural progression and Level 1 is often a good place to start, but you may be ready to go for Level 2 or Level 3 on each of the eight standards.

Don’t forget you can complete the standards in any order.
