About USA Mobile Drug Testing
USAMDT was established to help companies like yours identify, manage and avoid workplace drug and alcohol problems and build more productive and satisfying work environments for employees.
We can help limit your exposure to liability and avoid substantial non-compliance fines, sanctions and loss of business privileges. Employers with workplace drug testing programs also save money and increase employee performance and productivity. In fact, employers with workplace drug prevention programs have experienced a 51% reduction in workplace injury rates within two years of implementing the program. Some U.S. states offer annual insurance premium reductions from (5% to 20%) to employers that establish a drug free work place program according to applicable state rules and laws.
Drug and alcohol abuse is a serious workplace problem. Statistics from the DEA indicate that approximately 74% of adults who use illegal drugs are employed (employees don’t leave their substance abuse problems at the door when they enter the workplace) and the drug user is 5 times more likely to file a worker’s compensation claim.
Substance abusers incur 300% higher medical costs than non-abusers. Employees abusing alcohol or drugs cost 33.3% in the loss of productivity. Individuals with alcohol or other drug problems tend to apply and be hired at businesses that don’t have drug free workplace policies. 47% of workplace accidents are drug-related. 60% of workers who use drugs are employed by medium to small sized businesses. Absenteeism is 66% higher among drug users than individuals who do not use drugs.
