Workforce drug positivity rises by double-digits in almost one-third of U.S. industry sectors examined
“Drug use by the U.S. workforce increased each year — and by double-digits over two years — between 2015 and 2017, in five of 16 major U.S. industry sectors analyzed, according to a first-ever analysis of industry-specific data from more than ten million urine drug test results performed by Quest Diagnostics, an industry leader in workplace drug testing.
The data from the Quest Diagnostics Drug Testing Index™ industry analysis show that the Retail Trade, Health Care and Social Assistance, and Real Estate Rental and Leasing sectors had the highest overall positivity rates in 2017, while the Utilities and Finance and Insurance sectors had the lowest rates.”
