Drugs !!! Nearly a million employees in the UK have drugs in their system at work


The key messages contained in the summary at the beginning of the report are:
1. With drug use in the UK amongst the highest in Europe, the use of drugs in the workplace is a significant health, safety and financial risk for UK businesses.
2. For the first time in the UK, there is significant data to measure that risk. Concateno, a leading European drug and alcohol testing provider, has analysed the results of over 1.6 million UK workplace drug tests over the past five years
3. At least 1 in 30 UK employees has drugs in their system at any point in time (which equates to nearly one million people across the UK workforce)
4. There has been a 43 per cent increase in UK employees testing positive for drug use from 2007 to 2011
 5. The most prevalent drugs used by UK employees are cannabis, opiates (excluding heroin) and cocaine
6. The 25-34 year olds are the most likely age group to test positive for Class A drugs  – not under 25 year olds, as many assume

This report aims to provide UK employers, government and industry bodies with an enhanced understanding of drug use in the workplace.
