Substance abuse is a workplace hazard. Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug, and almost half of all workplace accidents are caused by people drinking on the job. This safety training video explains how to recognize substance abuse and what you can do about it.

Viewers learn the effects drugs have on users. Marijuana, tranquilizers and alcohol are depressants which slow down brain activity. Stimulants like cocaine, crack and methamphetamine have an opposite effect as they speed up brain activity. Heroin and morphine are narcotic analgesics that numb the senses, and hallucinogens such as LSD alter the way the brain processes information. Because a substance abuser's ability to function is impaired, they put themselves and their coworkers at risk. This course explains how your company's drug and alcohol policy is in place to ensure the safety of the workplace, and emphasizes the importance of notifying management if you think a coworker is under the influence of drugs.

Learn how to effectively respond to substance abuse problems in your workplace by watching this training video.
