We have a little spite inside of us, and no matter how bad things get, we all have a little compassion, too. It is when we allow this spite to take over our inherent human natures that we find ourselves in a bad position regarding other people. It is always best to be on friendly terms with everyone rather than being in a community of people around whom you always have to be watchful.
Workplace drug testing is part of our positive connection with the business community. When we allow our employees to abuse substances while on the jobsite, we are not only liable for any accidents which may occur, but we are also affected by how our employees interact with the business community around us. If a worker who is high offends a customer, or a drunk employee ticks off a client, then we would have retained an employee which has just cost us additional revenue. That is dangerous.
It is easy to find fault in others, and this is especially true for workers who engage in substance abuse. There is an inherent lack of or inability to create personal responsibility within oneself in drug addicts and alcoholics. This means that, in the professional workplace, it would be so much more difficult to pull off the requirements of the job and to behave in a professional manner.
However, you cannot control who, out of your employees, may abuse drugs or alcohol offsite. You can control what happens in your workplace, though, and that is very important. Mediscreen is NATA accredited for onsite testing, and we bring you the data which tells you which of your employees is abusing substances or is under the influence of substance while on the jobsite. Onsite drug and alcohol testing is a part of the many business solutions you have available. Since Mediscreen is NATA accredited to AS 4308, we are proud of our accomplishments.
It is not neighborly to delight in the faults of other people. It is, however, very neighborly to protect your employees from drug and alcohol abusers while they are at work. Screen your employees using drug and alcohol testing from Mediscreen, and you will be doing everyone a huge favor: (+61) 1300 79 70 40.
