Dealing with alcoholics and addicts

Alcohol and drugs damage the health of individuals as well as collective work.

Between 5% and 10% of workers have addiction problems. Drug and alcohol consumption has a harmful effect not only on the health of the addicts and the quality of their work, but also on those around them. The risk of accident is also greatly increased.

It is the responsibility of a company’s management to prohibit this kind of conduct, notably by drawing up written regulations. The employer can also step in regarding visibly addicted individuals to help them find solutions within the appropriate aid organizations.
