Employee and Manager Workshops

Our Employee and Manager Workshops are suitable for employees and managers looking to build a safe workplace.

Drug ARM offers evidence-informed training and workshops for businesses looking to support their employees and leaders to better manage alcohol and other drugs in the workplace.

Fostering a workplace environment that prioritises awareness and support around alcohol and other drug issues is crucial for employee wellbeing, safety and productivity. The risks associated with alcohol and other drugs can have a significant impact on workplace performance and safety. By acknowledging this, employers can be proactive in establishing an environment free from the adverse effects of alcohol and other drugs.

Employers have a legal responsibility for providing a safe workplace. Beyond mere compliance, integrating comprehensive alcohol and other drug training and policies is an investment that benefits individuals and the business as a whole.

Our evidence-informed workplace workshops and presentations can help you create a safe work environment, putting your employees at the core of your business strategy.

Our range of employee and management workshops are developed to:

  • Increase awareness of alcohol and other drug effects, harms and trends
  • Identify signs of substance use
  • Build understanding of the underlying causes
  • Reduce stigma and encourage help seeking by explaining the ‘Stages of Change’
  • Improve engagement with co-workers who may have a problem, or be supporting a loved one with a substance use issue
  • Provide tools and strategies to manage mental health and substance use
  • Help shape safe and appropriate workplace responses

Professional Workshops

Our Professional Workshops are suitable for people employed to support people using substances such as correctional officers, police officers, GPs, allied health workers, social workers, community support workers and more.

Your presentation was excellent, loved the ‘slido’ enabling everyone to physically participate and seeing all the responses appear on screen for discussion and inclusion. Again, very well done yesterday and we look forward to your next presentation.” Queensland Corrective Services
