If you were working with an individual in a medical facility and suddenly you see your co-worker acting strange or calling in a lot, would you think they are taking drugs or have a serious problem? Little does he know that he can work on passing a drug test before he gets caught. Most people may think otherwise. The fact here is that they are subjected to extreme pressures because of the work environment they are in. For instance, not only are nurses in emergency rooms have been known to be threatened or physically (and verbally) abused by their coworkers or patients, but they’re threatened with the fact they’re overworked, stressed out and may even be subjected to delirium (OSHA.com).
Countless mistakes; a cause for concern
Individuals who work with the federal or state governments, especially in the construction industry, will more than likely have to undergo a drug test. At some point, they’re subject to it during their pre-employment hiring process, randomly during a project, and, even, post-accidental occurrences.
