Would you notice if someone at your workplace was taking drugs?
You see your work colleagues every day in the office or on-site. You may notice when they have a hair cut or wear different clothes but would you notice if they had started abusing drugs and alcohol?
Some symptoms are more pronounced than others, but being aware of subtle changes can lead to preventative action, and potentially stop an accident from occurring.
It’s important to stay vigilant and keep an eye on each other, as people’s mental or physical state when under the influence could put them, or you, at great risk.
This handy graphic below lists a few attributes that may be apparent in someone under the influence.
If you do notice something suspect, it is important to tell your manager immediately, or if you are the manager then it might be a good time to introduce drug testing in the workplace. For impartial advice, contact SureScreen on 01332365318.
