The drug user is 5 times more likely to file a workman's compensation claim. The drug user is 7 times more likely to have wages garnished. The drug user has 2.5 times more auto accidents.
Marijuana is the number one cause of accidents in the workplace.Almost 26 million Americans (13% of the population) used marijuana,cocaine or other illicit drugs at least once in the past year. Drug users can cause employers to loose as much as twenty-five percent loss of salary through absenteeism, health care costs, and poor productivity. In the past ten years, substance abuse testing has increased 1200% with companies that enforce drug testing showing a 50% decline in positive tests.
Do you own your business? Have employees that are in safety sensitive positions? Do you know that lost work time, employee theft, sickness and tardiness cost you money? Illicit drug and alcohol use is one of the top drainers of profit in a business.
Wait a minute, I run a clean shop! How do you know? Are you with your employees 24 hours a day 7 days a week? Unless you have a random drug testing program for you and your entire staff, you don't know how clean your shop is. We gather your staff information, feed it into our computer and each month, quarter or whatever time frame you and the director agree upon, a certain percentage is pulled for randoms. Nobody knows when, or who, but us! It takes all the pressure off of you! You assign a director in your company and we deal with them. They tell the employees it is their turn for a test.
In return, you get a peace of mind knowing you have a system in place that will help keep your facility clean and make for a more safer & productive work environment for all.
