A construction company has sacked three workers who failed drugs tests.
Have your say
well done to thomas armstrong.i think every company should randomly screen employers for drugs.they gave those employers a second chance,and they blew it.especially with the way that companies liability insurance is sky high,people under the influence of drugs and alcohol,are not only putting themselves at risk,but also the company.stop making excuses for these people,who obviously didnt think enough about their jobs in the first place,give the jobs to the ones who come to work every day clean and sober.hope more companies follow your example.
Well done Thomas Armstrongs. It's sad to see people losing their jobs but they should have taken the chance the company gave them. Drugs are a scourge and if more employers took such action we would all be the safer for it.
Well done to the company all firms should have a zero tolerence policy to drugs and alcohol the majority of employees have to refrain from being under the influence of these I worked for an employer who radomly tested for both with a zero policy I myself found it reasuring that my fellow workers were not under the influence of either drugs or drink.I wonder just how many of those who failed the tests drove to work with drugs in their system not only putting themselves at risk but everyone else they encountered.As for those who advocate the use of drugs like Cocaine, Cannabis & Amphetamine you are as bad as those who supply drugs just ask the families of those affected by drug use those who have lost sons and daughters wives and husbands. I agree with all ME says lets not forget possesion of these drugs is an offence.
