Abstract

The International Labour Organization (ILO) recommends that companies should have a policy to reduce alcohol and drug problems. The policies should include education, information, help, support and testing. Describes a pilot study to examine how many of the member companies in the Alna council are testing for drugs, for what reason, and how this is stipulated in a policy. Compares the result with the guiding principles of the ILO. Concludes that Alna companies are not following the ILO′s principles on how to regulate drug testing in a policy, but their policies include a comprehensive view of alcohol and drugs in business and industry, as recommended by the ILO.
