Why Should Employers Drug Test?

The Top 3 Reasons To Drug Test Your Employees

The number one reason to drug test your employees is for the safety and well being of all your employees. Anyone who is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs in a workplace environment endangers others around them. The number two reason to drug test employees is because being under the influence can result in decreased productivity and poor employee morale. The number three reason is because health care claims, disability claims, etc. are very common results of employees who work while intoxicated or drugged.

The US Dept of Labor lists some common reasons employers implement drug testing:

  • Deter employees from abusing alcohol and drugs
  • Prevent hiring individuals who use illegal drugs
  • Be able to identify early and appropriately refer employees who have drug and/or alcohol problems
  • Provide a safe workplace for employees
  • Protect the general public and instill consumer confidence that employees are working safely
  • Comply with State laws or Federal regulations
  • Benefit from Workers Compensation Premium Discount programs
