Active steps to prevent addiction
A wide range of life situations may trigger changes in the behaviour of your employees. Individual signs do not automatically indicate a problem with alcohol or drugs. All too often, people turn a blind eye to this taboo subject, or acknowledge it reluctantly. There are good reasons to take action at an early stage.
We will inform you about how these issues fit into criminal law, employment law and civil law contexts. Provisions and directives (e.g. issued by trade associations) may also be of relevance. Getting the right information is the first key step. This is the only way to open up a dialogue, because warning signs can only be assessed on the basis of an open and honest discussion with the person involved. Protect yourself and your employees, in particular if you are exposed to high potential risks.
Drug screening for new employees or for employees showing signs of problems may prove to be a useful enhancement to your security measures.
Securetec will help you to establish the right concept for your company or institution.
