Course Description – Drug Awareness Course

Drugs Awareness Training is designed to help learners to recognise and minimise the impact of illegal drugs in their workplace.

There are in excess of 1 million Cocaine users, 2.5 million Cannabis users, 500,000 Ecstasy users, 250,000 Ketamine users, 400,000 Crack-Cocaine / Heroin addicts and numerous others including users of Meth-Amphetamine, Mephedrone and countless ‘legal highs’ / ‘designer drugs’; nowhere in the UK can claim to be entirely drug free.

By understanding relevant legislation, drug awareness training reduces the risks for organisations by allowing them to implement a zero tolerance policy. The application of effective prevention strategies and promoting organisation wide policies, reduces the impact of illegal drugs in the workplace.

The course provides information on trends in the 'drugs scene' and uncovers the myths and uncomfortable truths that surround the drugs culture. It allows organisations to genuinely strive towards a drug free environment through proactive prevention strategies.

The use of our Drug Box during the training, provides a realistic tool to help learners identify the different types of common illegal substances they may encounter in their workplace.
