DID YOU KNOW…

Product sales from UK manufacturers was over £390 billion in 2018.

The UK manufacturing industry currently employs 2.7 million people.

WHY IMPLEMENT A DRUG & ALCOHOL POLICY

The UK manufacturing industry is the 9th largest in the world and is growing year on year. Given the scale of the industry as well as heavy machinery and production lines where safety is critical, drug and alcohol misuse can have a detrimental effect on your people and business. As a result, more and more companies are implementing a Drug and Alcohol Policy.

A Drug and Alcohol Policy and testing programme can play a pivotal role in the manufacturing industry and can assist your organisation by:

  • Acting as a preventative measure to drug and alcohol misuse
  • Assisting your organisation to reduce risks
  • Supporting the health, safety and welfare of employees as well as the general public
  • Increasing corporate responsibility
