From individuals to businesses, everyone needs testing. Whether it’s direct-to-consumer wellness tests, DNA paternity testing, corporate wellness screening, or drug and alcohol testing programs, our clients don’t fit just one profile.

Criminal background checks and random drug testing help reduce turnover, reduce pilferage, improve safety and reduce workers comp premiums and claims. Restaurants are particularly vulnerable.
Word gets around. The absence of a random drug testing program tells abusers a company is a good place to hide. The percentage of impaired workers is higher in smaller businesses – and so is the cost of workers’ comp, time lost, inventory shrinkage and accidents.
Testing is the single best deterrent. Doing nothing costs plenty.

By the numbers:

  • 17.8% of workers in the hospitality industry are illicit drug users, double the average of all industries.(Source: U.S. Department of Labor’s Working Partners for an Alcohol- and Drug-Free Workplace)
  • Users cost employers an average of $6600 a year* for lost time, higher workers’ comp, lower productivity (for the users, and for unhappy co-workers who have to “cover” for them). Check your ROI here.
  • Up to 80% of losses from theft, pilferage and inventory shrinkage in the workplace are from substance-abusing employees – far more than from shoplifters, hijackers and burglars.Illicit Drug Use refers to the use of any of the following drugs in the last 30 days: Marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), inhalants, hallucinogens (including phencyclidine [PCP], lysergic acid diethylamide [LSD] and Ecstacy [MDMA]), heroin, or prescription-type psychotherapeutics used nonmedically, which includes stimulants, sedatives, tranquilizers and pain relievers.

*Some estimates go as high as $25,000 annually, per abuser.

Training
Ask us about training for managers and supervisors to teach them how to recognize the signs of substance abuse as well as what they can do and what they are obligated to do when a situation arises in your restaurant.

On average, retail workers’ rate of current illicit drug use is 9.4% — higher than the rate of all industries (8.4%).
Retail employees are a company’s first impression—the “curb appeal,” if you will. Entrusted with your reputation on a daily basis, retail employees also handle your cash and inventory. A retail employee with a drug problem is more likely  to be late to work, or not show up at all. And the cost to support a drug habit often exceeds his wages, which puts your company at risk for pilferage

 

Rates of substance abuse among workers in various areas of retail are as follows:

Sector Current Illicit Drug Use(%) Past Year Illicit Drug Use(%) Current Heavy Alcohol Use 
Apparel and Shoe Stores 3.9 12.3 1.5
Auto Supply Stores and Gas Stations 11.2 22.2 13.2
Department Stores 5.7 13.1 3.5
Eating and Drinking Places 16.3 28.0 15.4
Furniture and Appliance Stores 14.4 20.2 6.2
Grocery Stores 9.3 17.2 5.8
Other Retail Stores 5.9 12.8 4.7

When selecting the ideal tenant, you can’t afford to be wrong.

  1. Landlords lose significant income when having to continually contend with irresponsible tenants.

  3. Profitable properties are largely related to having quality tenants.

Direct-to-consumer Lab Tests
Self-employed people are used to taking charge of their lives, including their health care. They are also jammed for time and many put their health on the back burner, “until there’s more time.” Right.

Many also have high deductible insurance plans, so they are conscious of the cost of health care.
InOut Labs’ direct-to-consumer lab tests are a perfect fit for many entrepreneurs. Any test your doctor can order, you can order for yourself—for 70% less than the doctor’s office or hospital. It’s quick and easy. Though we do not provide any medical advice, these tests can let  you know if you need to see your doctor.

Make sure your company policy requires post-accident drug and alcohol testing. Even better, implement a random testing program to reduce the risk of accidents entirely.
