Statistics show that approximately half of today’s workforce is affected in some way by drugs or alcohol. Employees’ conduct, performance and attitude are affected when they have a problem with drugs or alcohol and their behavior has an impact on their colleagues.
As an employer, it is wise in this day and age to ensure a drug-free workplace program is implemented consisting of prevention, education and drug testing. Employers are seeing highly trained, educated and experienced workers lose their families, their careers and their future to substance abuse.
Employees who use drugs and abuse alcohol are more likely to be absent from work (especially for extended periods of time), to be involved in accidents (that may result in property damage), to be less productive, to be prone to steal from you and their colleagues, and to lack the ability to think clearly or react quickly.
Are you experiencing any of these problems with your current staff? Do you need to implement pre-employment drug testing? If so, maybe it is time to consider a Drug-Free Workplace program. SDRL Laboratory can help in your efforts to ensure a safe workplace for your employees.
We utilize state of the art instrumentation and computerization to ensure your urine analysis (UA) screens for drugs of abuse are accurate and reliable. In most cases, specimen results are provided within 24 hours of receipt and delivered via facsimile, SFTP or posted to SDRL’s client-secure web site for immediate access.
All specimen collection containers, labels and packaging/shipping materials are provided by SDRL. If your company is located in San Diego County, you can send employees or potential employees directly to us and we can perform the sample collection as well. Contact us for more information.
