“Our newly launched blog provides a setting to discuss issues surrounding the drug testing industry that impact business owners in every field,” explains David. “In combination with our other services, our blog helps provide a comprehensive approach that assists Houston-area businesses in creating and maintaining a drug-free workplace to reduce absenteeism and increase workplace productivity.”
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, nearly 75 percent of illicit drug users in the United States are employed and each of these employees who goes without drug screening presents an added liability for their employer. Employees who abuse a substance are more likely to be absent from work, less productive and involved in a workplace accident. Gonzalez points out that the blog will share research like this and provide guidance for business owners who are planning to implement a drug-free workplace program.
“We’re looking forward to sharing our experiences and industry advice through the blog,” says Gonzalez. “Educating business owners is just as important as the testing itself. Part of our job is to help business owners grasp the impact effective compliance management can have on their productivity and bottom line and this is the ideal way to do so.”
