Drug Testing on the Job
The 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a compilation presented by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, reports that 74.9 percent of adults who engage in illicit drug use are employed on either a part or full-time status. Similarly, most problem drinkers are also actively at work. Therefore, there’s a likelihood that you have employed someone who falls within these unfortunate statistics, and this can significantly decrease the safety and morale you have worked so hard to establish in your organization.
When you institute a zero-tolerance policy backed by professional drug and alcohol testing, you can increase the well being and safety of your workforce as well as your bottom line.
- Every year, thousands die as a direct result of underage drinking. Aside from vehicular accidents, other causes include:
