Why Complete Drug and Alcohol Testing?

From opioids to alcohol to recreational drugs, impairment is a serious issue facing today’s workplace. In fact, according to the National Safety Council, 75% of adults with a substance use disorder are in the workforce. Furthermore, over 72,000 people died of a drug overdose in 2019, and over 50,000 of those deaths involved opioids. In Canada, opioid pain relievers are used by 11.8% of the population, and hospitalizations due to opioid poisoning have been increasing (Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction).

Needless to say, employers play an important role in the reduction of risks associated with drug and alcohol abuse and impairment. Taking a proactive approach is essential in preventing misuse and offering support to employees seeking treatment and recovery. The implementation of a drug and alcohol testing policy is the first step to proactive risk prevention.

Our Story

SureHire began our journey in Leduc, Alberta in 2004 as a small physiotherapy team assessing and treating clients who had been injured on the job site. Working with injured employees and their respective employers galvanized our passion for workplace injury prevention, health promotion and rehabilitation.

In 2005, these experiences ultimately lead us towards collaborations with innovative companies who, like us, were seeking a better system of prevention, early intervention, and a deeper understanding of worksite hazards and risk management. From our humble beginnings, SureHire has become a recognized leader in occupational testing with more than 6500 locations North America.
