Drug Testing Deterrent - Employees Quit Rather Than Face the Music or Urine Cup!


Washington Closure Hanford, a radioactive waste disposal plant in Washington State has a zero tolerance substance abuse policy and recently showed why the policy is an effective deterrent.

Six workers at the site decided to quit rather than submit to drug testing after a baggie of marijuana was found in building at the landfill called the Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility.

A spokesman for the nuclear reservation contractor, Todd Nelson of Washington Closure stated to local media that managers found the baggie in the workers' day room Aug. 8 and immediately ordered drug tests for about 100 workers.

Six resigned rather than be tested. Results for 18 other employees are pending. All the rest of the tests were negative.

Cornell University: Substance Abuse Testing in the Workplace Reduces Injuries!

A recent Cornell University study claims that construction firms that utilize drug testing reduce workplace injuries.
Among the study's findings:
  • Construction companies that test for drugs may save substantially on their workers' compensation premiums. As a result of fewer job site accidents and injuries, the average drug-testing company in the study sample experienced an 11.41 percent reduction in its workers' compensation experience-rating modification factor. At the same time, companies in the study sample that did not employ drug testing saw no such decline.

  • Seventy-two percent of the respondents at companies with drug-testing programs in place said they believed the benefits of drug testing outweighed the costs.

  • The No. 1 reason why officials at the construction companies surveyed tested employees and job applicants for drugs was to promote worker and customer safety. Respondents believed that drug testing contributed positively to a company's image and was an effective deterrent to workplace drug abuse.
