We’re Here to Support you in the Aftermath of Festive Celebrations.
The festive period is a time of celebration, but it can also be a period of excess. As we transition into January, some employees might struggle with the ‘January blues’, potentially leading to increased use of drugs or alcohol as coping mechanisms.
But it’s not about catching people out…
Recognising this challenge and offering support instead of judgment is essential to aid your employees.
At LATUS, we adopt a comprehensive approach to assist employers dealing with drug and alcohol concerns. When concerns arise, we advocate for testing and pledge to offer optimal support and guidance to help employees overcome addiction, enabling them to regain their footing.
Suicide is the number 1 killer for younger employees
We acknowledge that suicide is the leading cause of death among the 18-35 age group, with drugs and alcohol being major contributors. Our goal is to assist employers in promoting a supportive environment that encourages employees to seek help, and we are committed to providing comprehensive support at every stage of the process.
Consider the following key points:
Binge and Blues: A Concern for Employers
- Increased Risks: Post-holiday, employees may face challenges returning to regular routines, potentially leading to reliance on substances.
- Workplace Safety: It’s imperative to ensure that those returning to work are not under the influence, as this can pose serious safety risks.
Why Drug and Alcohol Screening Is Critical
- Efficiency: Drug and alcohol screening is a straightforward way to assess if employees are fit for work, ensuring safety and productivity.
- Immediate Results: Many screening methods provide quick results, enabling timely interventions.
- Compliance with Regulations: As per Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines, employers have a legal duty to ensure a safe workplace. This includes addressing substance abuse issues.
- Liability: Failure to implement adequate screening could lead to legal and financial repercussions.
As an employer, ensuring the safety and well-being of your employees post-festive season is a responsibility that cannot be overlooked for the welfare of your employees. Drug and alcohol screening is an effective approach to identify and address any related issues promptly. Partnering with LATUS provides you with a comprehensive solution for supporting your employees, ensuring legal compliance and promoting a safe, productive work environment.
