Productivity low might prompt drug testing

Four
out of five organisations say they would consider drug testing employees if
productivity was at stake, finds a survey.

The
research, for the Independent Inquiry into Drug Testing at Work, shows that
very few firms currently drug-test workers, but there pressure is mounting on
firms to start testing.

The
inquiry was established to find out if drug testing was needed, and if so, the
best way to do it.

Of
the 204 firms surveyed, one in 10 said they planned to introduce testing within
the next year.
