Drug Free Workplace:

Ohio University Human Resources is dedicated to keeping our campus a safe working environment and would like to take this opportunity to highlight the benefits that drug-free workplace programs bring to employers, workers and communities.

Spreading the word that working drug-free works to:

  • Prevent accidents and make workplaces safer
  • Improve productivity and reduce costs
  • Encourage people with alcohol and drug problems to seek help

Drug-free workplace programs help protect employers and employees alike from the potentially devastating consequences of worker alcohol or drug abuse. Establishing policies, educating about the dangers of alcohol and drug use, deterring and detecting use, and urging people to seek help for alcohol and drug problems are smart safety strategies. They're also smart business strategies.

Ohio University strives to maintain a safe environment for our students, employees and our University community. You may review our policy #41.133.
