MARCOM's interactive course on Dealing with Drug and Alcohol Abuse for Employees in Construction Environments discusses the hazards of substance abuse, how employees can avoid them and what they can do to help keep their job site drug and alcohol-free.
In the United States there are over 50 million binge drinkers, 17 million illegal drug users and almost 15 million people who abuse prescription drugs... and most of them have jobs. Substance abuse directly affects a construction worker's health, personality and ability to function safely on a worksite. It can also decrease productivity, create a hostile work environment and damage their company's reputation.
The course includes information on substances that are often abused; alcohol, marijuana and other depressants; stimulants and narcotics; how people get “hooked”; drug dependency; becoming a substance abuser; alcohol and drug policies; overcoming substance abuse; and more.
Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
