According to the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), 74.8% of illicit drug users are employed and active in the workplace. Drug use accounts for a $75-$100 billion loss for employers each year due to on-the-job injury/accidents, absenteeism, loss of productivity, health care costs, and compliance claims.
A recent report from Quest Diagnostics shows that drug abuse among the U.S. workforce is on the rise, specifically prescription opiate use. The liability risk and monetary loss this poses for employers simply cannot be ignored. Drug screening is imperative in the workplace, both for current and potential employees, whether at random points throughout the year or before a job offer is even extended. At AFC Urgent Care Waltham Urgent Care, our medical professionals specialize in a comprehensive selection of confidential, cost-effective drug screening services such as:
