ADDICTIONS AND ITS CONSEQUENCES IN THE WORK ENVIRONMENT
We know that one of the concerns of employers is addictions (alcohol and drug use) in the work environment and of course the significant consequences in their companies:
- Low performance, loss of productivity, low quality of service, lower customer satisfaction.
- Decreased availability; absenteeism, cost of disciplinary measures, hiring and training of replacement workers.
- Decreased security: accidents, workers’ compensation, security services and crime prevention.
- Increased spending on health care, security and disability concepts.
On the other hand, it is essential to point out that the consequences of addiction in the worker are also significant; stress, demoralization, unemployment, poor professional development, loss of income, injuries, physical and mental disability and death.
Data from the Ministry of Labor indicate that addicts receive five times more disciplinary sanctions than the rest of the workers, resort three times more to sickness benefits and present five times more requests for compensation.
Various studies indicate that one-fifth of accidents at work are related to the intake of alcoholic beverages, one of the 10 leading causes of occupational disability.
The OIT (Organización Internacional del Trabajo) also specifies that, among alcohol or drug users who have a job, absenteeism worldwide is three or four times higher in this sector than among those who do not consume addictive substances.
