At FUTURES REHAB, we partner with employers to help create a safe working environment for the employees, the employer, and the public. Drug and alcohol testing programs can contribute to the reduction of employee injury, illness-related costs, medical care, sick leave, and disability benefit costs. The U.S. Department of Labor has reported that drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace causes 65 percent of on-the-job accidents and that 38 to 50 percent of all workers' compensation claims are related to the abuse of alcohol or drugs in the workplace.
Employee drug and alcohol testing can be performed Post Offer/Pre-Hire as a part of the employer's onboarding process. Testing may also be appropriate after an accident or incident with reasonable cause for suspicion.
Drug and alcohol testing programs are powerful tools against drug and alcohol use on the job. Employers who are testing for drugs and alcohol are committed to the health and safety of the industry and the employee.
