Smoking, Drink and Drugs

Encouraging healthy living throughout the workforce is important.

Providing information and help on how to quit smoking, for example, can make operatives feel supported and cared for.

Alcohol and drug use should also be considered and discouraged. Especially as this can have a negative impact on the health and wellbeing of the workforce and even present a potential safety issue.

Examples of how sites have tried to combat the use of smoking, drink and drugs include:

  • Frequent, random drug and alcohol tests were carried out on site;
  • A campaign to encourage operatives to give up smoking was launched with posters and one-to-one counselling;
  • A nurse regularly visited the site and provided quit smoking advice and assistance.
