The Ministry of Health 2007/08 New Zealand Alcohol and Drug Use Survey (NZADUS) showed:

  • Over 50% of New Zealand adults can be classified as 'binge drinkers', and 8% had used three or more illegal drugs in the last year
  • Nearly 15% of New Zealanders were current cannabis users. Among past-year cannabis users, 39.1% used cannabis at least weekly in the past year, and over half (54.0%) had used cannabis at least monthly
  • One in three (34.5%) past-year users of drugs (excluding alcohol) had driven a car or another motor vehicle (such as a motorcycle or a boat) while feeling under the influence of drugs in the past year
  • One in five (18.5%) reported working while feeling under the influence of drugs in the past 12 months

Taking these stats into account, there's a chance your employees could be affected by drugs and/or alcohol while they are working for your business.
