Who we are

THE BUILDING TRADES GROUP DRUG AND ALCOHOL PROGRAM is an internationally award-winning workplace intervention program that delivers training, communication tools, and policies and guidelines to improve safety on building sites.

What we do

WE HAVE CREATED a training and communications program in conjunction with workers, unions and employers that delivers toolbox talks, educational materials, worker training and Health and Safety Representative training.

This program clarifies the current regulatory requirements, and creates a forum for a conversation on site, so the workers can make informed decisions about their own safety and impairment. We also train all sub-contractors and principal builders, as well as Safety Committee Reps, Union reps and Foremen.
