Why is Drug Testing Important?

Employee drug testing is an equally critical part of both the hiring process and existing employee screening in a multitude of industries across the country. In manufacturing, drug testing is becoming increasingly frequent as many drug laws across the country undergo major changes.

Manufacturing companies don’t just need to join the fight against substance abuse in their communities, but have a greater responsibility to manage substance abuse in their workforce for the safety of their workplace and related areas. 

Due to the industry’s reliance on and use of complex machinery, motor vehicles, dangerous chemicals, and other health and safety hazards, your company needs employees that are alert, proactive, and able to perform their duties in a manner compliant with industry standards.

Employees under the influence of drugs at work can’t do this. Drug testing is important to identify team members within your staff who are struggling with substance abuse and need additional support.

Benefits of Drug Testing for the Manufacturing Industry

When you drug test your manufacturing employees, the benefits include:

  • A more productive staff
  • Decreased safety risks
  • Deterred drug use among staff
  • Reduced employee healthcare costs due to a healthier staff

A drug test can help you identify and address employees who are using illegal drugs that affect their time at work. Call Barada Associates to ensure you have the safest, most productive employees at work.
