Drug abuse has a serious impact on well being of the individual as well as the entire workplace. The above mentioned drugs used by employees produce different intoxication effects such as euphoria, slow thinking and reaction time, confusion, poor concentration, impaired coordination, judgment, memory etc. This results in workplace accidents which may lead to severe injuries or death of the abusers or the other employees. Drug abuse at workplace also results in absenteeism, lack of attention, personality changes etc., which ultimately lead to decrease in productivity at workplace. Hence, it is important to detect the drug abusers using random drug testing at workplace regularly.
