“Alcohol monitoring can assist in determining who needs help, making the workplace a safer place. It could also help in-house employee assistance programs work more effectively to support the employee and their families."
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) September 30, 2020
Tampa Bay Monitoring, a GPS and alcohol monitoring company located in Tampa, Florida announced today that it is now offering discreet and affordable breath alcohol tests to companies nationwide for employment safety compliance. Breath alcohol testing devices, also known as “breathalyzers” measure how much alcohol is currently in a person’s blood.
Alcohol use and abuse on the job creates a huge risk to employers, employees, and the community. Impaired employees are more likely to make mistakes, create hazardous situations, and engage in inappropriate behavior resulting in lost time, declining profit margins, serious injuries, and risk of workers compensation claims and lawsuits.
According to the The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD):
- Workers with alcohol problems were 2.7 times more likely than workers without drinking problems to have injury-related absences.
- Analyses of workplace fatalities showed that at least 11% of the victims had been drinking.
- One-fifth of workers and managers across a wide range of industries and company sizes report that a co-worker’s on-or off-the-job drinking jeopardized their own productivity and safety.
Alcohol monitoring in the workplace helps to foster a safe & healthy work environment. It is an affordable, discreet, and effective method for:
- Fleet safety compliance
- Workplace safety
- Aviation safety
Tampa Bay Monitoring’s mission is to provide affordable solutions for parents, defendants, companies, courts, & family law by offering innovative alcohol and GPS monitoring products & services.
For over a decade, they have provided GPS and Alcohol Monitoring for thousands of clients for both state and county pretrial and probation departments.
The company has given family court judges nationwide a way to guarantee the safety of children by making sure that a parent isn’t drinking during visitation or shared custody: https://tampabaymonitoring.com/child-custody/.
They have also provided alcohol monitors to those who voluntarily want to prove that they are not drinking.
“Safety is our main goal. We know how alcohol abuse tears families apart and ruins lives. But on a national level, we also know that it adds to the rising cost of health care and has a huge negative effect on productivity and the economy – now more than ever,” says Frank Kopczynski, owner of Tampa Bay Monitoring.
“Not only can alcohol monitoring assist in determining who needs help, making the workplace a safer place, it could also help in-house employee assistance programs work more effectively to support the employee and their families. Monitoring can increase productivity and positively affect the bottom line while ensuring public safety.”
Tampa Bay Monitoring is constantly looking for innovative ways to protect people while helping those who are monitored retain their privacy and dignity as often as possible. They added discreet alcohol monitors to their inventory so that clients can avoid the stigma of being monitored or alarming others, which has been a large factor in their growth. Moreover, given the pandemic those being monitored for alcohol can rest easy knowing that they are not getting a device that has been previously used.
“We also strongly encourage companies to implement employee assistance programs that can help workers who are struggling with alcohol and drug addiction, rather than just firing them and writing them off. With proper training, supervisors and employees can recognize the signs of addiction and offer support.” Mr. Kopczynski concluded.
