Six Ways to Create a Workplace Free of Drugs and Alcohol

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) statistics show that nearly 68 percent of adults who use illegal drugs hold full or part-time jobs, and NIDA research indicated the same is true of those who abuse alcohol. These employees, when compared to those who do not use drugs or drink heavily, tend to be tardy or call out regularly, and move from job to job more often. They’re also more commonly linked to workplace accidents and injuries, and are more likely to file a claim for workers’ compensation.

Employers that have adopted drug-free policies, which may include employee drug testing of some kind, have seen a boost in worker enthusiasm and efficiency while also reporting fewer accidents and instances of tardiness and absenteeism. To create a positive and safe environment, companies might consider being proactive on several fronts to increase the likelihood of hiring and keeping the best employees possible.

In addition, 14 percent of United States workers say they fit the description of a “heavy drinker,” and of this group, nearly 30 percent reported they also used illicit drugs, and a growing number are turning to prescription drugs like pain pills.
