Do you have a written policy, available to employees, regarding employee use of drugs and alcohol?
If not written, do you have a policy regarding the use of drugs and alcohol by employees that you verbally tell them about when they are hired?
Do you typically check a potential employee’s background for drug or alcohol abuse prior to hiring him or her?
In the last three years, have you EVER required one or more employees to take a drug test or a breathalyzer to detect alcohol?
(circumstances of drug/alcohol test) Did you require such tests following a serious work-related accident?
(circumstances of drug/alcohol test) Did you require such tests when there was a reasonable suspicion of use?
(circumstances of drug/alcohol test) Did you require such tests at the time of hiring?
(circumstances of drug/alcohol test) Did you require such tests for random checks?
Do you typically conduct these tests because the government requires you to do so, your insurer requires or gives you incentives to do so, or because you believe it is necessary?
In your business, is employee abuse of alcohol and its consequences a constant concern, an occasional concern, an unusual concern, or never a concern?
