Drugs & Alcohol Online Course Details

Recent data reveals that alcohol and drug-related issues cost Australian businesses an estimated $6 billion per year in lost productivity and absenteeism, making it vital for Aussie workplaces to be trained in effectively managing drugs and alcohol to promote a safe and productive work environment.

Substance abuse, including drugs and alcohol, has lasting impacts not just on individuals, but also on the workplace. The Drugs & Alcohol Online Course is meticulously designed to educate employees about the detrimental effects of substance misuse, its ripple effects in the workplace, and the importance of fostering a safe and responsible environment.

In the rapidly evolving workplace of Australia, it's not just illicit drugs that pose a risk. Even prescribed medications or over-the-counter drugs can have adverse effects, especially for professionals like tradies who operate heavy machinery, work at heights, or are exposed to hazardous materials. The statistics are alarming: 6% of annual fatalities result from the effects of alcohol and other drugs. Safe Work Australia's resonant slogan – think safe, work safe, go home – underscores the critical need for a drug and alcohol-free worksite.

Designed in collaboration with Greencap, a leader in risk management and compliance in Australia, this course provides a comprehensive toolkit for PCBUs to ensure safety and adhere to strict compliance norms.

Register for the Drugs & Alcohol Online Course today and join the movement towards safer, healthier, and more productive workplaces. Understand, adapt, and champion the cause for a substance-free environment. Safety is more than a guideline; it's a responsibility we all share.

  • Awareness and Alternatives: Dive into the reasons people turn to drugs and alcohol, and discover healthier, more productive alternatives.
  • WHS Duties and Compliance: Understand that responsibilities related to substance use aren't isolated to employees alone. They encompass a wider spectrum under the model WHS Act, including PCBUs who play a pivotal role in maintaining workers' health and safety.
  • Critical Learnings for Tradies: Co-created with SANDAS (The South Australian Network of Drug and Alcohol Services), this course has received an impressive 4.6/5 rating from over 8000 learners for its invaluable insights tailored for tradies.
  • Incident Investigation: Delve into the nuances of workplace incidents linked to substance misuse. Whether it's a minor mishap or a near miss, every incident warrants investigation. Gain the confidence to identify hazards, notify the right authorities, and conduct thorough investigations.

General Course FAQs

Is my course tax deducible?

In Australia, course fees are tax deductible if they are directly related to your current job, either maintaining or improving the skills required or being a condition of your employment. The course must be linked to your current employment and not just for future job opportunities. Expenses reimbursed by your employer are not deductible, and you can only claim for out-of-pocket costs.

For definitive guidance, please consult a tax professional or refer to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website to ensure compliance with tax regulations.

When is my booking confirmed?

Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.

What are your payment methods?

Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.

Can I pay my package in installments?

Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking.

For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.
