Drug and alcohol problems are major issues for employers in the UK affecting the profitability and effectiveness of organisations as well as the health, safety and welfare of all staff. Employers will be breaking the law if they know of drug-related activities in the work-place and fail to act. They have a duty of care to protect staff from the mistakes of other employees acting under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"Drug abuse makes the user 33% less productive, 3 times as likely to be late, four times as likely to hurt others at work or themselves, five times as likely to sue for compensation and ten times as likely to miss work."
I know most of the people who work here. There are no drug or alcohol abusers in this workforce…
This is another common statement, but if the police suspect that one in five road accidents are caused by drug related problems and one in seven deaths on the road involve drivers who are over the legal drink drive limit, can there really be no abusers in your workforce?
I recognise the need for testing but it is an expensive process.
Wrong! The tests are inexpensive and most companies who adopt a policy benefit from greater productivity and fewer costly incidents.
Because we are a new company, we are very competitive with our rates.
