Alaska is struggling with a terrible drug epidemic thanks to the increase in the use of heroin, methamphetamines and prescription drugs. With Alaska's workforce being heavily made up of industries such as gas, oil, seafood processing, health care and transportation, lots of workers are likely to be drug tested randomly while on the job, or will be required to take a drug test before they are hired.

There are many benefits associated with drug testing and maintaining a drug-free workplace. By implementing a drug-screening program along with randomized drug screening, employers can experience:
In addition to getting insurance premium discounts, you may save money in other ways. If a post-accident drug test comes back with positive results, you may be able to deny a workers comp claim. Workers comp is not paid when the accident was proximately caused by intoxication of the injured employee or proximately caused by the employee being under the influence of drugs unless the drugs were taken as prescribed by the employee's physician. Also if you terminate an employee for a positive drug test, you may not have to pay unemployment benefits.
