The modern workplace often comes with certain hazards, and one of the most important ways to reduce exposure to accidents and other liability is to implement rigorous safety procedures. Unfortunately, recreational drug use is currently as popular as ever. In addition to the obviously increased risk of workplace accidents, illicit drug use can lead to other problems, such as declining productivity, excessive tardiness and absenteeism, and increased turnover. That’s why it is important to institute drug screening procedures. Participation in the Arkansas Voluntary Drug-Free Workplace Program qualifies you for a 5% discount on your workers’ compensation insurance premium. Participation in this program requires a pre-employment drug testing, post-accident drug and alcohol testing, and testing if there is reasonable suspicion of use. Many companies also institute random screenings in an effort to ensure consistent employee compliance.
