Is Your Industry Being Proactive about the Realities of Substance Abuse?

It’s always nice to come across an article which indicates how proactive an industry is being regarding the issue of potential employee substance abuse.

A piece from Timenews.net (Kingsport, Tennessee) beautifully highlights how simple it is to get the word out about the need for background and drug screening to protect both employers and workers.

The short article invites people involved in the mining industry to attend an upcoming seminar which is:

“designed to increase understanding of addiction, drug screenings and treatment options and processes; provide information on various drugs including prescription medications; tell how to recognize signs of impairment; and outline the specific risks of substance abuse for miners.”

An informational discussion like this is such a low-cost yet powerful way to help individuals and companies open their eyes to the reality of working and thriving in a 21st century marketplace.  Here’s hoping the audience packs the venue.
