“Industry figures show that employees who are substance abusers are less productive, more prone to errors, threaten workplace safety, and are more likely to file worker’s compensation claims.”
Pre-employment drug and alcohol screening has become an important tool for companies to help reduce common effects of drug abuse in the workplace such as tardiness, absenteeism, attitude problems, theft, decreased productivity, crime and violence.
The OSHA connections
Employers are under a statutory obligation under Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to maintain a safe and healthy working environment. Drug & Alcohol testing can form part of this obligation. People in the workplace under the influence of drugs and alcohol may pose a risk either through accident caused by drug abuse or even in some cases aggression.
