  • The government is investigating whether workers in dangerous jobs can be forced to take regular drug- and alcohol tests.
  • The State Secretary had hoped that employers’ and employees’ organizations would together come up with better agreements on how to stop alcohol- and drug use on the work floor.
  • Van Ark called this a “big dilemma”, but thinks the safety aspect is important enough to at least experiment with monitoring.
