CLS Diagnostics Comprehensive drug tests in Franklin, MA

Factory workers often operate large, dangerous machinery and heavy equipment. Although, modern machinery today has safety fail-safes, this equipment can still be highly hazardous and requires an employee's focus and concentration while operating. For this reason, it makes sense for employers to conduct comprehensive drug tests to ensure employees are in the right mental state to avoid accidents on the job.

Workplace injuries related to machinery accidents are often attributed to human error. Even though most machinery has safeguarding devices to protect the operator there are still safety precautions that the worker must take to avoid dangerous situations. Workers under the influence of drugs are more prone to accidents because of lack of focus, distracted behavior, and uncoordinated movements. This can make them susceptible to machinery hazards to themselves or to co-workers. Onsite accidents can affect company productivity as well as increase the legally liable. Worker's compensation claims and/or legal actions can cost quite a bit of money.
