Are your employees abusing drugs in the workplace? Are your workers able to do the jobs you’ve hired them for?
One of our missions at Bostec is to help business owners and supervisors feel comfortable that their employees are safe from the influence of drugs while at work. To do that, we offer extensive training for companies in the recognition of drug and alcohol abuse.
If an employee is under the influence at work, it’s most likely to be from alcohol, marijuana or prescription medication. Bostec helps employers identify the signs that their workers might be abusing these drugs (and others), and we help them to identify and establish policies against drugs and alcohol in the workplace.
Note: Marijuana might be legal in Washington state, but its use can nonetheless create complicated situations for people in search of a job. Read more.
Why is this important?
Companies of all size — whether mom-and-pop operations, small businesses with 10 employees or large corporations with hundreds of staff members — have a duty to provide a safe and drug-free working environment for their team members.
In addition, businesses that employ workers who can have an impact on public safety, such as commercial drivers, pilots, heavy equipment operators and mechanics, have an even higher need to ensure their workers are free from drugs and alcohol.
Bostec helps companies mitigate liability related to employees using drugs and alcohol at work or during off-hours activities.
Ninety-eight percent of the companies Bostec works with opt for marijuana-free workplaces. Here’s why.
Our experienced program staff can set up all the components necessary for your company to begin a workplace drug and alcohol testing program. Bostec Inc. helps companies in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska set up workplace testing programs. We train staff and supply them with the tools necessary to do the job right.
Bostec also helps Whatcom County companies with implementation of their drug testing programs by offering a convenient location for employees to come for random or scheduled drug tests.
