Why Test?

Substance abuse is a enormous problem in the workplace. Consider the following key facts generated by the United States Department of Labor:

 

Approximately 73% of all illegal drug users are employed either full or part-time.

 

 

Nearly 14% of all employed workers are heavy drinkers.

 

 

Over 60% adults know people who have gone to work under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

 

 

Drug using employees have a higher turnover ratio and absenteeism rate than their non drug using counterparts. Specifically, drug using employees are 2 times more likely to quit, 3 times more likely to get fired, 2.2 times more likely to request time off, 2.5 times more likely to have 8 absence or more, and 3 times more likely to be late.


 

Drug using employees are also 3.6 times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident and 5 times more like to have a worker compensation claim.


Approximately 75% of callers survey on a national cocaine help line revealed report using drugs on job and 64% admitted that it affected their job performance. Nearly 44% sold drugs to fellow employees and 18% stole from their co-workers to support their habit.

 

There no question that substance abuse affects the workplace. It reduces the safety, morale, profits, and competitiveness. It is no wonder why so many companies are implementing drug free workplace programs. 

 

Many managers believe that their organization is immune. Their employees are not drug users. The challenge is that drug users are forced to work for companies who do not have a drug free workplace program.  If your company is one of the remaining organizations that does not have a drug free workplace program, you more than likely have drug users working for you.
