With great respect, I don't think you do get it at all.

I do get it M, I thought I gave a very good example getting it in post # 5.

An employer can do without someone that uses illegal drugs in the working environment as this may cause said environment to become unsafe. If the employees are allowed to come into the work environment under the influence of drugs, there are endless possibilities for accidents, injuries to not just themselves but others plus there's the possibility that productivity may decrease.

It's very important that our work places stay in order and have the least room for error as possible and as such It is imperative that we drug test employees to ensure not just their safety but others around them ie consumers work colleagues.....



.....That being said, what kind of world are we living in where we encourage employers to police folks life's [prod prod]

Re: It's not a problem or is it?

You say you get it, and you provide a very valid argument as to why it is unsafe for people to be in a work environment under the influence, but then in the next breath you ask if it should be employers 'policing' their staff.

They are not policing their staff, they are just ensuring that the work environment is safe from preventable hazards......and they have a legal,responsibility to do this. They have to have public liability insurance, and this has to be displayed so that all and sundry can see that is current and up to date.
Employers have lots of legal responsibilities. By ensuring their staff come to work in a fit state they are ensuring they do not get stung for damages if something does go wrong.
To answer your last question.....what kind of world are we living in?
Well, you have eyes and ears.....you see the same things that I see.....we are living in an increasingly dangerous and litiginous world, where lawyers tell,people 'no win, no fee'.

Here endeth my input to this thread.
I have said all that I can say and I am not into chewing my cabbage twice....or three times.
What I have said clearly states my own opinion on this issue.

Re: It's not a problem or is it?

I may be wrong but,The hypocrisy with this testing is that it doesn't test for prescription drugs (painkillers etc).
It's certainly possible for someone to cause a serious accident because their mind gets a little fogged up due to strong say strong pain killers.
I guess drugs effect people in different ways. I know Mrs explorer gets mind fog on her painkillers.
I wonder if it would be possible to fail the alcohol tests by drinking certain cough medicines? Hmm

Re: It's not a problem or is it?

Perhaps Margaret is right and "I just don't get it"

I wonder what the stats say about folk who have drugs (including alcohol) in their system in the work environment my guess is 1in50 give or take . That amounts to thousands of "irresponsible" workers across the country
Giving employers this kind of power is a little scary (imo) as it has a habit of migrating into other areas in the future (testing for other undesirables). Surely employers have sufficient powers at the moment for dealing with folk they suspect are on drugs or that may be under the influence of alcohol at work.Rather than random test why not just test those suspected of being intoxicated?.....


......And before the 'if you're not a drug user you have nothing to worry about' crowd start, can I just point out to them that this is a perfect example of 'guilty until you prove yourself innocent'

No doubt you will attempt another one because I dare to criticise you...

P.S. We all read/watch the news, we don't really need your updates on the Saville pervert threads unless they are of use.

Oooh! look, another 'cheap blow', yes I have a model railway, it is in my profile as well as in threads on site, you may call it a toy train if you wish, however I and many, many more find it far more relaxing than wandering through derelict buildings whilst on a suicide mission.

Yes, you have told me before and I have replied in a similar vain to this:-

If folk can make their way onto AccyWeb, I think they may just, be able to turn on a television or read a newspaper, they don't need you to act as a broadcaster.

How can you keep anyone informed, all your posts and threads prove is that you are the most ill-informed poster on here.

How many times just in this thread have you done a complete U turn?

U turns? You're a complete, six lane roundabout!
