Prescription drugs, amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine and heroin are the most commonly abused drugs in the state of Arkansas. Many who currently live in the state contribute the uptick in drug abuse to lack of diversity and entertainment.

For many employers, drug and alcohol testing has become a necessity in the workplace. Having a drug-free policy in place improves the safety of all employees, increases productivity, enhances security and keeps morale high.

Drug Testing For Employers

As businesses strive to set themselves apart in the market, many see drug testing as a way to demonstrate their commitment to good citizenship. Drug testing is not mandatory for most businesses in Arkansas, but employers may sign up for the state's voluntary Drug-Free Workplace Program. Joining this program provides a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Lower Costs - All drug-free employers receive a 5% discount on the cost of workers' compensation insurance.
  • Reduced Turnover - Drug-free employees tend to be more loyal and accountable, and will offer your company quality service in the long run.
  • Customer Confidence - Consumers are more likely to trust a business that is committed to being drug-free.
  • Fewer Accidents - Drug-free workers are less likely to make mistakes, saving your company from losses in time, money, and good publicity. Fewer mistakes also mean fewer injuries and damages, reducing your insurance and material costs.
  • Improved Office Environments - In a drug-free workplace, employees are more likely to trust each other and feel safe, leading to more cooperation and increased productivity.
