The High Cost of Substance Abuse
Did you know that illicit drug users are:
- Five times more likely to file a work comp claim
- 3.6 times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident
This year in a workforce of 200 workers, employees and family members will have 40 emergency room visits and 121 ambulatory care visits related to alcohol use and abuse.
Fortunately, you are in the driver’s seat for implementing business solutions to prevent users from applying for a job at your company and to deter use. Testing does both, resulting in changing lives while positively impacting your bottom line.
The company substance testing policy sends a positive message to the community that exhibits a caring attitude for the safety and health of everybody.
Riverside Chiropractic and Acupuncture is ready to serve your company and workforce, providing the services you need today for a better tomorrow.
Employers know the cost burden associated with illicit drug users and alcohol use on the job. Poor productivity, absences, tardiness and lack of quality work are costly to your business. Testing is the best preventative measure and remedy against the problem. The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires employees performing safety sensitive functions to be tested for illicit drugs and alcohol. Making roadways safer and reducing workplace accidents and injuries saves lives.
Likewise, the DOT requires commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to submit to a DOT physical examination to determin a driver’s fitness for operating a commercial motor vehicle safely. Our obligation is two-fold: ensure safety for the general public and keeping you in compliance.
Whether it’s DOT drug and alcohol testing or DOT physical examinations that your employees need, our professional health care team is ready to help your business. Our testing is thorough and accurate, and our DOT examinations comply fully with federal regulations.
Have full confidence in our certified testing technicians. Our professional clinical staff have completed training and proficiency requirements according to the 49 CFR Part 40 federal regulations.
