Why use Drug Testing in the workplace?

Drug misuse, dependency and illegal activity can have a significantly negative impact on your business. Studies have shown:

  • 76% of drug abusers are employed and the cost of employing a drug abuser can be significantly higher than that of a non-drug user due to lower productivity. In addition, this can result in more lost work days (with 17 million working days being lost each year nationwide).
  • Drug abusing staff will have a higher turnover and therefore increase training, recruitment costs alongside the possible introduction of rehabilitation costs and increased medical costs.
  • The rate of accidents and compensation claims will increase.
  • There is an increased risk of drug abusers selling drugs to work colleagues that will in-turn increase the drug-related problems in the workplace.
