People under the influence of drugs and alcohol can be a danger to both themselves and their workmates.
Drugs and alcohol can affect both staff performance in the workplace, and the culture of your business in a range of ways, including:
- A higher chance of employees injuring themselves or others in the workplace
- Increased absenteeism
- A negative, disengaged workforce
- Other employees having to cover for their co-worker or redo their work
- Employees under the influence can be a danger to themselves and others – building resentment amongst staff
By being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to drugs and alcohol testing, you can make a huge difference to the culture of your workplace. Random testing for drugs and alcohol can be a positive influence. It is often referred to as the ultimate deterrent and reduces pressure on your employees in numerous ways.
