Our program

Most people who use alcohol and other drugs are employed. A fact no workplace can afford to ignore.

While very few people use alcohol or other drugs at work, their effects can directly affect workplace culture, safety and productivity.

360Edge’s WorkWell  program is specifically designed to address alcohol and other drugs issues, and related mental health needs, in the workplace.

Our best practice policy program ensures that your organisation complies with its legal and duty of care obligations, while promoting a workplace culture that values the safety and wellbeing of all.

Our WorkWell program can be tailored to suit your organisation’s needs.  It consists of the following components:

  • Rapid review
  • Policy development and implementation
  • Expert support

The biggest mistake workplaces make in trying to improve safety is
placing too much emphasis on detecting use of drugs and not enough on impairment.

Are your workplace AOD policies evidence-based?

Like other policies, an alcohol and other drug policy defines clearly what is and is not acceptable in regard to alcohol and other drug use by workers and contractors that is likely to affect the safety and productivity of the workplace.

Many workplaces have a policy that only covers testing of alcohol and other drugs, leaving both a legal and wellbeing gap. An alcohol and other drug policy needs to be focused on impairment and fitness for work.

A strong alcohol and other drug policy:

  • Prevents harmful alcohol and other drug use among workers and contractors, and reduces risks and harms;
  • Promotes a culture where wellbeing is emphasised with a universally shared perception that alcohol and other drugs at or around work are incompatible with a safe and effective workplace;
  • Provides clear expectations, roles and responsibilities, and instructive procedures for reducing risks and managing issues related to workers’ alcohol and other drug use if they do arise.

Our Rapid Review service involves a fast and effective assessment of your current workplace policies and programs using our scientifically informed measurement and review system.

Following a Rapid Review, workplaces are presented with a comprehensive report of our findings and a set of recommendations for improving your policies and programs.

City of Greater Dandenong

360Edge were engaged by COGD to undertake a rapid review of our policy in relation to drug and alcohol in the workplace. The process provided a foundation for the update of our approach to manage issues concerning alcohol and drugs in the workplace.

This includes our commitment to assisting those affected by substance abuse whilst providing an acceptable benchmark for all staff especially those in high-risk occupations. We now have a clear plan to provide the appropriate support mechanisms for those affected by drug and alcohol abuse and also educating our staff by creating a greater awareness of the harmful impact of substance abuse.

The benefit of the rapid review approach was that 360Edge interviewed all stakeholders who were impacted by the future change to our policy and this tailored response with a comprehensive report provided a foundation for the future change in policy direction.
