Article Title: Drug use, workplace accidents and worker turnover
Journal: Journal of Drug Issues
Volume/Issue/Pages: 29, 2: 341-364
Year: 1999
Abstract:
Analyzed relationships among drug use, work-related accidents, and employee turnover, using data from a representative sample of US workers aged 18 yrs and over. The results indicate that various measures of drug use are not associated with work-related accidents. The frequency and history measures of marijuana and cocaine use, frequency of drunkenness, and symptoms of drug dependence did not affect the likelihood of a work-related accident. However, several types of drug use were related to the risk of being fired or resigning from a job in the previous year. Current and former users of marijuana and those who get drunk more frequently reported a greater likelihood than those who have never used of resigning from a job in the last year. The risk of being fired varied by occupation.
