Drug-Free Workplace Programs: Introduction

 








 

Drug-Free Workplace Program
Can your company afford NOT to be a Drug-Free Workplace? Join thousands of companies that have become Certified Drug-Free Workplaces

 

         Substance abuse costs employers over $100 billion each year.

         Becoming a Drug-Free Workplace is a strong marketing tool for your company as well as opening opportunities to both government and outside contractors requiring DFW certification.

 

It is easy to become eligible for your State workers compensation premium and other important incentives by meeting the simple steps supplied in our comprehensive DFW Implementation Kit.


Companies that become certified as Drug-Free Workplaces can receive a substantial workers' compensation premium credit depending on your State incentive program.


Worker's compensation is a major business cost, and premiums are expected to rise. However, the premium credit is only one incentive available and can more than offset the cost of a Drug-Free Workplace program.


Companies with Drug-Free Workplaces cite additional bottom-line benefits:

 

  • A marketing tool for outside contracts
  • Fewer workplace accidents
  • Lower health care costs
  • Reduced absenteeism and turnover
  • Increased productivity and morale

by 40%
