Employee Drug Testing

Business owners cannot afford the mistake of hiring drivers or workers under the influence of intoxicating substances, due to the high cost of liability and insurance penalties. The best way to safeguard against the damage that drug and alcohol usage brings in the workplace is to provide random drug and alcohol testing.

Drug and Alcohol Dangers in the Workplace

No one wants to talk about the effect that drugs and alcohol have in the workplace. Substance abuse creates havoc not only for employees but for the employers, business owners, and co-workers. Behaviors change, attitudes are altered, and work productivity suffers. Long term investors and investments are put at risk, and people’s lives are put in danger of changing forever.

We see all too often what happens to people who drink and drive. Imagine owning a trucking company and having one of your drivers involved in a serious accident, where someone was injured or killed. If the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the company is liable for the damages and injuries caused by the driver.

Prevention and Intervention Saves Lives

This could have been avoided if the company had provided random, periodic drug and alcohol testing for every driver in the company. Assuming everyone is honest and not under the influence of some type of substance becomes a liability. No one wants to admit they have a problem with substance abuse. As owner or founder of a company or business, it is the responsibility of the owner to protect the image and investment of the company, as well as the employees.

Louisiana employers have the power to take charge of their business and protect their interest, and the interest of others. Drug and alcohol testing help employers recognize employees who are suffering from a substance addiction problem. When the problem is brought to the forefront, employees can get the help they need, and the business can continue to thrive.

Help with Drug and Alcohol Addiction

We offer testing for small, medium, and large sized businesses and corporations located throughout Louisiana. Government agencies and non- profit organization employees are not exempt from drug and alcohol testing. Substance abuse is the number one cause of domestic violence and traffic accidents. The majority of problems in the workplace and on the highway are avoidable, providing employers to enforce a drug and alcohol testing policy for new and existing employees.

Help is available in many cities throughout the state of Louisiana. Many of these drug testing centers are close to thousands of worksites and are open for business during various times of the day. Companies in Louisiana without a drug-free workplace policy can easily qualify for a drug and alcohol consultation, so they can get a program in place to help secure the safety of their business and their employees.
