In 2016, 5,190 workers in the U.S. died as a result of a workplace injury. Substance abusers are involved in 55% more incidents and sustain 85% more on the job injuries. Each recordable workplace injury costs employers approximately $42,000. Substance abusers cause 40% of all industrial fatalities. Overdoses from the non-medical use of drugs or alcohol while on the job have increased by 32% since 2015.
Drug testing is an effective way to send a strong, zero-tolerance message to employees, reduce an Operator's liability for drug-related workplace accidents and improve an Operator's safety ratings. Tested workers and job applicants experience a 51% reduction in injury rates within a two-year period of implementing a drug testing program.
Through TPS Alert’s contractor auditing service, Operators can ensure that their contractors are in compliance with their company-specific drug & alcohol and background screening policies. TPS Alert provides a series of comprehensive compliance audits and continual drug & alcohol monitoring with a complete panel review to ensure that contractors are actually testing in conformity with their Operator’s requirements. Reasonable suspicion training and background screening monitoring is also available.
