Drug & Alcohol Testing in the UK
Drug and alcohol abuse is a prevalent problem in the workforce, and it can seriously damage an employee’s health, endanger the business, and put other staff members at risk. Here at Healthier Workforce, we can assist your business by creating drug and alcohol management policies, and carrying out substance misuse testing on employees.
Alcohol and drug testing is a necessary service for most businesses, as according to a 2014 study, one in ten people would fail a random drug test. It is illegal for business owners to let employees use drugs in the workplace, and so your failure to act against any substance abuse could put your business in jeopardy. Also, the use of drugs and alcohol at work can lead to lower productivity, and could even cause accidents that lead to serious injuries.
