Steps to initiating a Drug-Testing Program
A comprehensive drug-free workforce approach includes six components:
Pre-Employment Drug Testing
Written Substance Abuse Policy
Employee Education and Training
Employee Assistance Program
Methods of Drug Testing
Pro's & Con's of Drug Testing
What led us here
In the past year there had been multiple incidents involving injuries to our factory workers. The latest injury involved an employee losing his hand in a press operation in the factory. The subsequent investigation of the accident and an anonymous tip from a fellow employee stating they thought this employee was under the influence of drugs while working that day. It was then brought to the attention of the safety committee.
To fix the problem...
In order to prevent accidents from happening again, we the safety committe are recommending a drug-testing program outlining procedures to be followed for new employees, current employees, and any subsequent issues involving employees hurt on the job.
• Instituting the policy
• educating employees
• training for supervisors
By implementing this drug policy and having employees agree and consent to alcohol and or drug testing. We hope to be a leader in the industry as an accident/drug free workplace.
