Why Occupational Drug & Alcohol Testing is important?
Drug abuse is one of the most significant concerns at present, especially in the workplace. Research reports show the fact that drug abuse is costing billions of dollars to businesses for the loss of employees’ productivity and more spending on healthcare and insurance. Drug & alcohol testing before hiring (Pre-employment drug and alcohol testing) any employee will let the businesses avoid hiring who are drug dependents. Moreover, random drug and alcohol testing is important to ensure workplace safety, especially for safety-sensitive jobs, to safeguard the secret information of the company. Similarly, post-incident drug testing is also important to consider. It is because the workers who used to consume drugs and alcohol pose an enhanced risk of errors in their work and injuries. Therefore, with the involvement of a lawsuit, the employer will get a better chance to absolve himself from any responsibility with ease.
Even more, drug and alcohol testing can help businesses to maintain effective productivity and can ensure the protection of employees and businesses in the best possible way. Additionally, it would also become easier to reduce the average healthcare expenses effectively.
