Drug Free Workplaces

Become a Drug Free Workplace

A drug-free workplace, as defined in the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, is a workplace where "the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance is prohibited." Most employers strive to provide a safe work environment and encourage personal health. They consider the abuse of drugs and alcohol on the job to be an unsafe, counterproductive work practice. Furthermore, they see substance abuse as a serious threat to other staff and their customers. In consideration of this, most employers strictly prohibit the use, possession, and sale of illegal drugs and alcohol at work. Some employers, regulated by a U.S. government agency such as the Department of Transportation, have strict, mandated procedures in place.
