Drugs have no place at work, but with the increased legalization of marijuana, a growing opiate epidemic, and the compounding psychological stressors over the past several months, security leaders and organizations have their work cut out for them. Substance abuse impacts everyone in an organization. And while everyone has the responsibility to prevent, recognize and address it, two departments in particular play extremely important roles: Security and Human Resources. When they work in tandem to enforce a drug abuse prevention program, the results are extremely effective in protecting the safety, health and well-being of the workforce and creating a productive, efficient and positive workplace.
