Substance abuse assessment/ Drug Test is essential to identify if a potential hire or an existing employee is addicted to drugs, alcohol and other addictive substances. Drug testing, in particular, will reveal if the candidate/employee comes to work intoxicated and high.
An employee who is under the influence of drugs is a threat to their colleagues and their customers. Oftentimes, an employee using drugs may commit mistakes which may be fatal to them and those around them. From wreaking havoc on the factory floor to ruining the brand image and goodwill that the company has developed, a candidate/employee can lead to untold financial and brand image losses for the company. Substance abuse testing can help the organisation prevent these situations.
