A drug-free workplace policy forms the foundation for a drug-free workplace program.
However, it is not the same as a drug-free workplace program. Rather, it is one of five components.
A comprehensive drug-free workplace program includes:
- Drug-free policy
- Supervisor training
- Employee education
- Employee assistance
- Drug testing
Although programs can be effective without all five of these components, it is recommended that all be at least explored when developing a program. Effective program planning and philosophy are critical to success.
Employers and employees should work together to examine each component and design a balanced, fair program suited to the unique needs and challenges of their workplaces.
