It's a dangerous world.
Some employers are already aware of the high risks...

Others are just learning!

Drug testing can help you prevent or minimize the adverse impact that drug abuse can have on your business.
Prevention doesn't pays!

DatLab provides testing services onsite.

Nationwide, almost 10% of employees use drugs in the workplace!
According to the National Institute on Drug Addiction Drugs are just as much a problem in the workplace as they are elsewhere. It is estimated that 1 out of 5 workers, 18-25 years of age and 1 out of 8 workers, 26-34 years of age, abuse drugs on the job.

It is estimated that drug users cost businesses over $100 billion per year, directly and indirectly.

Direct Costs to your Business

Drug abusing employees acquire 300% higher medical costs and benefits, which consequently increases health insurance rates. [U.S. Chamber of Commerce]

Illicit drug users are five times more likely to file a workers' compensation claim. [U.S. Dept. of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration]

Many illegal drugs are bought by money diverted from legitimate businesses and could be as much as 100 billion a year. (2.5% of GNP and 8% of discretionary spending) [U.S. Chamber of Commerce]

Indirect Costs to your Business

Studies show that a substance abuser will function at about 67% of his/her capacity! Data supports the "generalization" that they are NOT productive workers! [National Institute on Drug Addiction]

  • Employees using drugs are three times more likely to be late for work and 2.5 times more likely to have absences of eight or more days. Collectively, substance abusers have an absentee rate of 30-35 days per year! [U.S. Chamber of Commerce]
  • Drug use in the workplace breeds drug dealers in the workplace. An Indiana Gallup survey revealed that 32% of workers knew of drug use by employees on the job; and 10% had been offered drugs to use on the job while at work.
  • Drug users have 3.6 times as many accidents. Up to 40% of industrial fatalities and 47% of industrial injuries can be linked to alcohol abuse and alcoholism. [Employee Assistance Society of North America]
  • Drug users tend to have bad work habits and tend to reduce morale. Access Associates can help.
