In this program we'll learn the dangers of substance abuse in the workplace, the impact of working with someone inebriated and how companies can address this prevalent issue. Alcohol is the most widely used and abused substance in our country. 140 million Americans drink alcohol, 67.1 million are binge drinkers and 16.6 million are heavy drinkers. Most work assignments require employees to stay focused on tasks and goals, alert and accurate, productive and proactive and who are also ambitious, reliable and work well with their coworkers. Employees that have substance abuse issues are less productive and are 70% more likely to injure themselves, use more sick days, or file a workman's compensation claim.
