Drug Testing Statistics

Good news for employers


A 2011 poll conducted by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Drug and Alcohol Testing
Industry Association (DATIA) regarding drug testing demonstrated the efficacy of implementing these workplace
programs. Among companies that conducted drug testing:


• 9% reported high absenteeism rates before implementing a drug testing program compared to 4% after program
implementation;
• 14% reported high workers’ compensation incidence rates prior to program implementation compared to 6% after
implementation;
• 9% reported experiencing an increase of productivity after program implementation;
• 16% reported seeing a decrease in employee turnover rates after implementation.
