Further Benefits and Insights on Employee Drug and Alcohol Testing
Supporting Employees and Business Growth
Reduction in Turnover and Absenteeism: Research indicates that employees who misuse drugs and alcohol are more likely to switch jobs frequently and be absent. By addressing the issue through testing and offering supportive measures, businesses can decrease turnover and increase attendance.
Enhanced Reputation: Firms that prioritise the safety and well-being of their workforce make a statement about their values. Implementing a drug testing policy can boost a company's reputation, making it more appealing to both potential clients and job candidates.
Decrease in Workplace Accidents: Drug and alcohol use can significantly impair judgment, making accidents more likely. By ensuring employees aren't under the influence, firms can minimise the risk of workplace incidents, protecting both people and assets.
Respecting Privacy: One misconception about drug testing is that it is an invasion of privacy. However, with a clear employee drug testing policy and strict adherence to employee drug testing laws, privacy concerns can be adequately addressed.
Understanding Results: It's crucial to say that the aim is not to invade personal privacy but to ensure a safe working environment. Tests typically look for substances that might impair job performance, not prescribed medications. That's where checking a person's prescription medication plays a crucial role.
Addressing Fears: Employees may worry if drug tests are sent to the lab for further testing. Assuring them that further tests are just to ensure accuracy can alleviate anxiety.
