Drug & Alcohol Screening
Substance misuse in the workplace is considered one of the most critical problems facing industry today. They increase the risk of accident, lower productivity, raise insurance costs and reduce profits.
It is vital that employers and employees are aware of the implications of substance misuse within the workplace, particularly in relation to safety.
A comprehensive drug-free workplace programme may be the best means of preventing, detecting, and dealing with substance abusers.
Such a programme generally includes the following elements:
- A written policy that is supported by top management, understood by all employees, consistently enforced, and perfectly clear about what is expected of employees and the consequences of policy violations;
- A substance abuse prevention programme with an employee drug education component that focuses not only on the dangers of drug and alcohol use but also on the availability of counselling and treatment;
- Training of managers, front-line supervisors, human resource personnel, medical staff, and others in identifying and dealing with substance abusers;
- An appropriate drug and alcohol testing component, designed to prevent the hiring of workers who use illegal drugs and - as part of a comprehensive programme - provide early identification and referral to treatment for employees with drug or alcohol problems.
