In 2005, the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations in partnership with Searider Productions developed this training program to heighten awareness of the dangers of alcohol and substance abuse in the workplace.

U.S. Department of Labor’s Drug-Free Workplace Advisor  assists users to build tailored drug-free workplace policies and provides guidance on how to develop comprehensive drug-free workplace programs. It also provides information about coverage and requirements of the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.  Additional tools and resources may also be found through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
