3. Look at safety-critical work
Think about the kind of work you do and any safety-critical elements where drug or alcohol misuse could have a serious outcome, for example:
- using machinery
- using electrical equipment or ladders
- driving or operating heavy lifting equipment
You can use this information to help with your risk assessment.
Where employees in safety-critical jobs seek help for alcohol or drug misuse, it may be necessary to transfer them to other work, at least temporarily.
