As a result of legislation such as the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005 ( UK ), the need for workplace drug and alcohol testing and a relevant testing policy is now essential for helping to protect your employees and your business from the consequences of intoxicant abuse. Workplace Drug Testing is becoming increasingly common in the UK.
This is due to rising public awareness of the significant problems associated with drug use in the workplace and a growing trend of larger companies pressuring their suppliers to operate a workplace drug testing policy themselves. In the USA, well over 90% of the top 1000 companies operate some form of drug testing in the workplace - and the benefits have become abundantly clear, with marked reductions in accidents, litigation, ill health, absenteeism, reduced productivity and crime.
