Here’s How to Reduce Accidents and Employee Turnover
We’re currently dealing with the lengthiest health crisis in the history of our country, and it’s never been more challenging to run a business. Companies are having to operate with as few employees as possible, and many are busy playing catch-up dealing with our transition to our “new normal.” Good people are always hard to find, and it’s crucial to learn as much as you can about prospective employees before making your hiring decisions.
Illicit drug use is one of the biggest problems that we have to deal with as a society. It leads to more crime, it tears families apart, and often results in long-term health problems and early mortality. People that use illegal drugs are also far more likely to be involved with workplace accidents, as well as problems with excessive tardiness and absenteeism. First Choice offers the full range of drug and alcohol testing services, which are all conducted by highly trained professionals in a safe and confidential manner. As you probably already know, participation in the Arkansas Voluntary Drug-Free Workplace Program also qualifies you for a 5% discount on your workers’ compensation insurance premium. Contact us any time that you have questions about the following services:
Pre-Employment Drug Screenings and Physicals-You always need to find dependable and trustworthy personnel, but you can’t always determine the intangible qualities that come with a great hire. What you can do is conduct pre-employment drug testing to determine if they use recreational drugs. We can perform your testing at our facility or on your jobsite, and offer industry leading turnaround times on all results. We can also arrange for physicals, if needed.
Post-Accident Drug Screenings-Worker’s compensation requires immediate screening after a workplace accident, which can’t be predicted in advance. We can almost always offer same-day service by appointment, and also accept walk-ins during business hours. If the accident takes place after business hours, we also offer emergency screenings.
Random Drug Screenings-Random screenings are a very effective way to address suspected use, and keep your employees honest (particularly if they are driving or operating heavy machinery). We can easily set up a random testing program for your workplace, and handle its implementation.
