Employee Drug & Alcohol Testing

lab2Why Should You Require Testing of Your Employees?

1. To qualify for workers’ compensation discounts. Many states offer employers a discount on their workers’ compensation insurance premiums if they take certain steps to maintain a drug-free workplace, which includes testing job applicants.

2. To avoid legal liability. If an intoxicated employee harms someone on the job, the employer could be legally liable for those injuries. Workplace drug and alcohol use may also violate OSHA and state occupational safety laws.

4. According to the federal government, drug and alcohol use takes a toll on the American workplace. Problems relating to drug and alcohol abuse cost $80 billion in lost productivity in a single year. Employees who use drugs are three times more likely to be late to work, more than three-and-a-half times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident, and five times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim.
