Abstract

The Division of Workplace Programs (DWP) is mandated by Executive Order and Public Law to provide oversight for: (1) the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Program aimed at elimination of illicit drug use in the Federal workforce; and (2) the National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP), which certifies laboratories to conduct forensic drug testing for the Federal agencies and for some federally-regulated industries. Additionally, DWP addresses primary substance abuse prevention through comprehensive drug-free and health/wellness workplace programs. These programs promote safer, healthier, and more productive workplaces. Interventions incorporate a continuum of scientifically-based components, including substance abuse awareness, health/wellness, health risk assessments, brief screenings, drug testing, early identification, intervention, treatment, recovery, and reintegration assisting employees, families and their communities. DWP is committed with helping workplaces meet the demands of health care reform along while reducing health care costs.
