Drug Testing in the Workplace

It’s wise to implement a drug testing policy in your workplace.

Published research shows workers are less likely to use drugs if a workplace has a drug testing policy in place.

But that’s not all:

According to a 2015 report published by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA),

“Combined data from 2008 to 2012 indicate that an annual average of 8.7% of full-time workers aged 18 to 64 used alcohol heavily in the past month, 8.6% used illicit drugs in the past month, and 9.5% were dependent on or abused alcohol or illicit drugs in the past year.”

One last statistic you should know:

A National Household Survey on Drug Abuse reported,

73% percent of all current drug users aged 18 and older (8.3 million adults) were employed in 1997. This includes 6.7 million full-time workers and 1.6 million part-time workers.”

Substance abuse amongst workers is not uncommon, and it could be costing you. At Test Smartly Labs, we follow proper:

  • Policies
  • Procedures
  • Documentation
  • Professional collection processes

This will help you make sure you’ve got a legitimate or defensible drug and alcohol testing partner. But there’s more:

Are Drug-Using Workers Harmful to My Business?

The short answer:  yes.

 

You may not realize it, but drug-using employees can cost you more than headaches and hastles.

 

Studies show employers with workers who abuse tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs run a higher risk of losing time and money

 

In fact, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) says this country spends:

 

$740 billion+ annually on costs related to tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs. Why?

 

When an employee uses drugs…

  • the cost it takes to crack down on crime related to substance abuse goes up.
  • The costs of lost productivity from workers abusing drugs goes up.
  • The costs of healthcare skyrocketing from substance abusers goes up.

Convinced yet?

You should be drug testing your workers to protect not only their lives, but the health of your business.
