Drug-Free Companies

Congratulations to Peachtree Windows & Doors, SKF USA and Simpson Trucking for working to keep their companies Drug-Free. These industries obtained certification by the State of Georgia and are receiving a 7.5% discount off their workers’ compensation insurance premiums.

Drug use in business costs money, customers and lost productivity, as reflected in these facts: 38-50% of workers’ comp claims are related to substance abuse; substance abusers have 300% higher medical costs; substance abusers are 2.5 times more likely to be absent from work and are 1/3 less productive; 70% of adult users are employed with 44% employed by small businesses.*

Call Shelley Davis at the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, 770-532-6206 for information about how your company can be a certified drug-free workplace. Drugs Don’t Work is a program of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
