UA Locals Encouraged to Participate in Drug-Free Work Week - (9/13/2007)

The purpose of Drug-Free Work Week is to highlight that being drug free is key to workplace safety and health and to encourage workers that may have alcohol and drug abuse problems to seek help.

Drug-Free Work Week is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor in coordination with members of its Drug-Free Workplace Alliance.  This cooperative program, which represents both employer/contractor associations and labor unions, aims to improve safety and health through drug-free workplace programs.  It focuses on the construction industry because research indicates that it has higher the average rates of worker alcohol and drug abuse - a serious concern given that it also is among the industries with the highest rates of workplace accidents and injuries.  But because drug-free workplace programs benefit all workplaces, employers and employees in alll industries, not just construction, are encouraged to take part in Drug-Free  Work Week.
