& Pre-Access Testing
Properly developed and well-validated tests, evaluations, assessments, and background checks are a reliable and objective means of gathering job-related information on potential employees. When you complete pre-employment and pre-access testing and background verification checks, you introduce objectivity into your hiring process.
Why complete Pre-Employment and Pre-Access Testing?
From opioids to alcohol to prescription medications and 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. According to new Canadian Substance Use Costs and Harms (CSUCH) data, lost productivity due to substance use cost $22.4 billion in 2020. This cost accounts for 45.6% of the $49.1 billion in overall cost and harms of substance use in Canada during that year.
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).
Taking a proactive approach is essential in preventing workplace substance abuse. The implementation of pre-employment testing and background checks is the first step to proactive risk prevention.
