Alcohol and drug abuse is a growing problem in our society. Misuse of alcohol or drugs can impair an
individual’s ability to perform even normal, routine tasks and it also affects their ability to interact socially.
This will impact on all areas of their lives and their workplace is no exception. Even if substances are
taken only at the weekend, their after effects can last well into the working week. The fact that the majority
of substance abusers (74%) are in full time employment makes the management of substance misuse
in the workplace a priority for all HR and Occupational Health Professionals. Hibernian Healthcare are
delighted to offer this service in collaboration with Randox Laboratories. Based in Antrim this accredited
and highly acclaimed facility will provide both the Point of Care sampling kits and all laboratory testing.
