Substance Abuse in the Workplace – The Facts

 
Incompatible with Buisness
People often think of substance abusers as being in a very narrow stereotypical group. However, the reality is quite different. Substance abuse can affect us all.
 
In the absence of statistics from the Irish workplace we look to our closest neighbour with very similar social behaviour attitudes, the United Kingdom. Substance abuse manifests itself in many areas of society but its effects are keenly felt by industry. The estimated cost of substance abuse to employers ranges from £ 11 billion to £ 16 billion annually in the UK alone – largely due to the fact that close to half of all industrial accidents are drug or alcohol related.
 
With over 70% of drug users currently in employment, most companies will have drug users on the payroll – which leads to persistent costs stemming from drug-related accidents, theft, illness, absenteeism, reduced productivity and poor quality of work.
 
Statistics published by the National Health Service in the UK confirm that drug users are 3.6 times more likely to injure themselves or others at work, and when they do, they are 5 times more likely to file a claim for compensation against their employer.
 
When coupled with the fact that they are 2.5 times more likely to have absences of 8 days or more, you can see why substance abuse is so incompatible with company activities.
 
It is important therefore, for companies to adopt the attitude that substance abuse is not a question of stigma for the business, but more a relatively common problem in society that needs monitoring and prevention wherever possible. This is achieved in the workplace by drug awareness training and drug policy development.
