When you are talking with someone and they behave in an unexpected way, in a way which denotes fear, anxiety, shiftiness, cowardice, or some other negative trait, then you may wonder at their behavior. It is the unexpected which causes us to wonder. If we expect someone to be nervous and agitated, then we don’t really care if they end up being that way, and some of us may even find it amusing, on top of that. However, if someone displays a negative trait when one was not expected, it sounds as an alarm in our brain.
We weren’t expecting something shifty like that.
Therefore, sound the alarm.
Of course, alarm also indicates fear and many people are either afraid of a situation they are currently in or they are naturally very fearful. In this way, they depict alarm in situations where it is not appropriate or productive to do so.
For instance, if someone just saw a coworker die or they learned that their spouse is cheating on them, it would make sense that they would immediately go out for a strong drink as soon as they leave work.
However, if your employees are simply bringing drugs or alcohol to the workplace environment to consume them onsite, then you have a very real problem on your hands. Not only is this a problem in case someone is injured, but the spirit of fear spreads very quickly and people who are easily stressed out often find themselves abusing drugs or alcohol while on the jobsite. Well, of course, that is not appropriate, so make sure that you have plenty of regular drug testing scheduled for the future.
