Not only is drug testing beneficial for employers, but it, also, benefits the employees being tested. Random drug testing can prevent current drug users from experimenting with other drugs. Testing can limit drug use from fear of getting caught, chance of getting penalized, and the consequence.
65 percent of accidents, on the job, are connected to the abuse of drugs or alcohol. Most of the time, the employee being injured is an innocent bystander, not the drug user. Random drug testing can, also, help employees, who are using, get the assistance they need to get off drugs. This, in turn, makes the workplace a safer environment for all involved.
With a drug free workplace, you will see the employee productivity and morale rise along with attendance and enhanced performance on the job.
