Risks for companies

Workplace safety is vital

The use of alcohol or drugs and the abuse of prescription medication pose considerable risks for both the individual employee and the company. Between 15 and 30% of all workplace accidents occur when employees are under the influence of alcohol. Jobs in many industries, such as industrial engineering, construction, heavy industry and transport, involve an element of danger.
