The Tennessee Drug-Free Workplace Program is designed to increase productivity for Tennessee employers and promote safe worksites for employees by promoting drug- and alcohol-free workplaces. Worksites, where workers are not impaired by drugs and alcohol, are safer worksites and can operate in an enhanced competitive position that is free from the costs, delays, and tragedies that accompany workplace accidents resulting from substance abuse-related injuries. Employers are not required to join; and if the reasons named above are not reason enough, there are several other reasons explained below that an employer should contemplate when considering participation.
