Handling Substance Abuse Professionally
Drug Free Workplace - It works for everyone
For the employers: Your employees are your single most valuable asset. For that reason, the health and safety of the workforce is of paramount concern. Good companies take considerable pride in the work there employees perform. While the Company has the greatest respect for the privacy of its employees, it must be understood that a DFWP Company cannot tolerate alcohol and/or drug abuse. Such negligence threatens the ability of the employer to maintain a safe, healthy, and efficient environment, which enhances the welfare of all the employees.
In certain aspects of operations a Company is required to comply with the rules of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) Drug Free Saftey Program (DFSP ) formerly the Drug Free Workplace Program (DFWP). In so doing, the Company takes steps to address the problem of substance use that negatively affects the workplace for the safety of the employee, his coworkers and ultimately for the public that consume the products the company makes or the services the company provides. Therefore being concerned with the health and well being of all employees it cannot condone behaviors on the part of employees that relate to substance abuse.
