The UK manufacturing industry employs 2.5 million people, and is the ninth largest sector in the world.
Health and safety is vital in manufacturing as it is a high risk industry. Therefore, it is important to have an effective substance abuse policy and screening program in place to help keep your employees and business safe.
Heavy machinery and presence of dangerous materials poses many risks and hazards.
The machinery and materials used in a manufacturing environment can often become dangerous or even fatal when concentration and coordination of employees is suboptimal.
Impairment or intoxication in a factory workplace, be it from drugs or alcohol, can therefore have disastrous and tragic consequences – both for employees operating machinery or anyone within the vicinity of manufacturing operations. Preventative action can help reduce the possibility of an accident, injury or even death.
SureScreen can provide guidance on implementing a substance abuse policy in the workplace and consult with you on the best products suited to your requirements.

Mitigate manufacturing risks and hazards
As an employer, health and safety in a factory site is your responsibility; failing to take actions to mitigate hazards and risks can lead to legal consequences, penalties from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or employment tribunal hearings.
SureScreen can work with you to help identify and mitigate against drug and alcohol misuse in your factory. Tackling the issue of substance misuse can considerably benefit your business by helping to ensure a safer working environment, as well as resulting in improvements to employee performance.
