Consultancy Support to HR Departments
Many employers and organisations – small and large – have not adopted the required policies and procedures relating to Mental Health Neurodiversity or pathological dependency issues.
The misuse of drugs and alcohol can be a serious workplace issue and can be a hazard to themselves, colleagues, and the organisation.
It can lead to unacceptable absenteeism, low morale, financial loss and breaches of the legislation.
An adequate policy should address and support workers who may have a dependence issue.
It should encourage workers to seek help and help workers connect with organisations / NHS support for this illness.
The policy should apply to all staff, but special attention needs to be used for those working industries such as transport, building, trade, and service sectors where lives may be placed at risk by breaches of health and safety requirements.
We can advise on drug testing services for employees by arrangement.
Our associates offer a consulting service to support employers with ensuring their policies on mental health and addictions are up to date and assist HR Departments with this service if required.
It is also essential that the work force’s mental health needs are attended to, and where staff have been working alone or at home, guidance is also available to HR Personnel on these risks.
