The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40, describes required procedures for conducting workplace drug and alcohol testing for the Federally regulated transportation industry.

If you're in business, you must face some facts:

Seventy percent of all illegal drug users are employed either full or parttime*. This suggests over 10 million people are current users of illicit drugs. In fact:

One in twelve full-time employees reports current use of illicit drugs.
One in every ten people in this country has an alcohol problem**.

What do those numbers mean to you? They mean that every day, across this country, in towns large and small, from small businesses to large corporations, the problems of substance abuse are hurting the workplace. And that means a major business problem for you. Because substance abuse affects the bottom line: it costs you money. How? Look how substance abusing workers compare to drug-free workers.


Workdays missed
Likely to injure self or others
Workers' compensation claims filed



That means REAL DOLLAR COSTS to you in all these areas:

Overtime pay
Sick leave
Insurance Claims
Workers' Compensation

But there are also HIDDEN COSTS that drive up your bill for substance abuse:

Diverted supervisory and managerial time
Friction among workers
Damage to equipment
Poor decisions
Damage to the company's public image
Driver turnover

How can you protect your company and your workers from those who, through the abuse of illegal drugs or prescription drugs or alcohol, endanger your workplace and your profits?
