Workplace drug and alcohol testing

Alcohol testing

The CIPD has estimated that drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace costs the UK more than £2billion pa. Alcohol and drug abuse combined account for an estimated 14 million lost working days. As a result, drug testing in the workplace and monitoring for alcohol misuse are becoming increasingly prevalent in the UK.


Drugs and alcohol alter a person's body functions, behaviour, personality and, therefore, work performance.  When an employee is impaired by drugs, or alcohol, the potential for error is estimated to increase tenfold. Employee drug and alcohol testing is intended to ensure workplace safety, security and productivity.
