The statistics are alarming! Consider these from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation:

  • Workforce population – 3/4 of drug abusers are employed; a third of those are employed full-time
  • Productivity – Substance users are 33 percent to 50 percent less productive
  • Absenteeism – Users are absent an average of three weeks or more per year and are tardy three times more often than non-users;
  • Accidents – Users are three to four times more likely to have an accident on the job and five times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim;
  • Medical claims – Substance users file 300 percent to 400 percent more costly medical claims;
  • Employee theft – An estimated 50 percent to 80 percent of all pilferage, theft and loss is due to substance-using employees.

 

There are no quick fixes to substance abuse in the workplace, but having a solid substance testing policy and program, as well as informed supervisors and employees, can help, especially if the testing program is carefully controlled and monitored.
