With American businesses losing $81 billion dollars per year due to drug use, many businesses are searching for ways to combat addiction within their company. Opioids like Vicodin, Percocet and OxyContin are responsible for an increasing number of workplace accidents each year. Random drug testing is the most effective way to keep a business place drug-free, but for some, this raises the concern that could violate a worker’s privacy. Training employees and supervisors on how to detect the early signs of drug-use is one of the best ways to prevent workplace disasters. Setting clear policies, offering access to treatment and offering support to employees facing stressful situations are great ways to become proactive.
