Keeping the Workplace Safe with Drug Testing

All Articles

Employing individuals who have substance abuse issues is a risk that many companies face, and many employers unknowingly hire those who are regularly abusing drugs and other illicit substances.

Unfortunately, the cost is high, as substance abusers can impact the workplace by significantly increasing the chances of accidents and even fatalities, for which they are responsible 50 percent of the time. They also might negatively impact the morale of fellow workers when they perform their job duties while under the influence. What’s more, these individuals tend to be less reliable as other employees, with high rates of absenteeism and job turnover. It’s also perhaps no surprise that many perform at a substandard level, which lessens overall productivity.

Because of these risks, it’s important to keep the workplace safe—and employees functioning at their best—through a regular system of drug testing that complies with federal regulations. However, many companies struggle to keep up with these requirements and cannot sustain a regular and effective testing program.
