  • About This Course
    Alcohol and Drug Awareness Policy is a bitesize online course that teaches you the effects of drug and alcohol abuse. Although misuse of these substances can be physically and emotionally damaging to the individual, the effects are often much further reaching; substance abuse can affect the individual’s ability to work and therefore impact on their workplace and the other people in it. Because of this, abuse of drugs and alcohol is an important safety issue and it is imperative to tackle this at work to prevent a potential breach of health and safety.
     

    Who is this course for?
    Alcohol and Drug Awareness Policy is designed for employers and employees of any workplace. It is also suitable for people that want to learn more about the physical and emotional effects caused by alcohol and drugs use and understand why it is an important contemporary issue. 
     

    What will you get from this course?
    Upon course competition, you will have an awareness of alcohol and drug related problems and their effects on society. You will discover how an individual’s misuse of these substances has a knock-on effect on their work environment and what workplace policies there are to prevent issues from arising. As a result, you will have the knowledge to recognise whether someone is under the influence of drugs or alcohol and take action in order to protect the happiness and health of the workforce.

The best boost for anyone

When people know you have a disabilit...

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down. It’s like reading a good book then having a test on it. There is no pressure, no tutor hurrying you up and no time limits on the tests, just how learning should be. The written report I received after the ...
