Employee drug and alcohol abuse can be an expensive and complex problem for employers and colleagues alike. The negative impacts of workplace drug and alcohol abuse can range from lost productivity and absenteeism through to injuries and legal ramifications.


The National Drug Strategy Household Survey in 2013 of people aged 14 years and over revealed:

  • 3.5% of the workforce had a day off work due to the consumption of alcohol
  • 2.5% of workforce reported going to work under the influence of illicit drugs
  • Around 5% of all Australian workplace deaths, and 11% of workplace injuries, involve alcohol.


The Thomson Reuters Drugs & Alcohol in the Workplace Conference series is taking place in Melbourne and Sydney on 23 & 24 June 2020. The conference will cover the evolving legal justifications for drug and alcohol management, how to provide a safe work environment and best practices in preventive strategies.
