ASCERT’s Training Manager Colin Robinson explains “This is a new and exciting development within our Training Service provision.

However, our more recent work with trade unions brought us to the realisation that there was a gap in knowledge about drugs and alcohol and how to support employees who are experiencing challenges at work as a result of their substance misuse.”
