National Drug-Free Work Week

We are proud to announce the 13th annual anniversary observance of NATIONAL DRUG-FREE WORK WEEK, OCTOBER 14 - 19, 2019. This yearly public awareness campaign highlights the importance of a drug-free workplace and encourages workers with alcohol and drug problems to seek help.

History of National Drug-Free Work Week

National Drug-Free Work Week was initiated by the U.S. Department of Labor as a cooperative agreement focused on improving safety and health in the construction industry through drug-free workplace programs. The first Drug-Free Work Week was observed in 2006, and in subsequent years, more and more organizations—representing a range of industries—also rallied behind the effort, helping firmly establish it as an annual opportunity to reinforce to employers and employees alike that “working drug free works.”

Today, the National Drug-Free Workplace Alliance, a division of Drug Free America Foundation, in collaboration with stakeholders for a safe and healthy workplace, promote this annual observance. Together, we spread the message to encourage individual workplaces to take this opportunity to educate and strengthen their safe and healthy work environments—reflecting the true spirit of National Drug-Free Work Week.
