With the widespread availability of drugs and alcohol, there is an increased risk of substance abuse in the workplace leading to significant ramifications for a business and its employees. Jeopardising the safety of not only the user, but also their co-workers and in some cases the general public, it affects the whole business environment and puts those present at serious risk of harm.
Substance misuse (or abuse) is defined as the sustained use of any mind-altering substance. This includes legal substances like solvents and alcohol as well as illegal drugs. Substance misuse impairs an individual’s ability to perform normal, routine tasks, as well as affecting their ability to interact socially. Altering their behaviour, it can have a damaging effect on all areas of their life, with their workplace being no exception.
To counteract the negative effects substance misuse can have on a company, many organisations implement a policy that outlines their expectations concerning working whilst under the influence of alcohol and drugs. This can often be referred to as a substance misuse policy and it enables employers to implement workplace drug and alcohol testing processes.
As workplace testing becomes more common it is important that drug and alcohol testing service providers are equipped to meet the varying demands of different industries.
At Randox Testing Services we possess a wealth of experience and knowledge that enables us to offer holistic packages to meet the needs of the customer, regardless of their location or industry. This knowledge comes from over 35 years of testing experience in the diagnostics industry and through our involvement with bodies that help shape testing legislation.
