A Federal government survey revealed that workplace substance abuse is a significant problem in both the non-durable and durable goods sectors of the manufacturing industry. Roughly 15 percent of workers in both sectors admit to having used illicit drugs in the last year and about 7 percent report current heavy alcohol use (Us Deparmtment of Health and Human Services).

Manufacturers who abuse alcohol and other drugs threaten not only their colleagues and clients, but also America's well-established reputation as a producer of top-quality wares. By keeping the nation's factories and workshops free of alcohol and drugs, industry employers work to ensure that the label 'Made in America' continues to symbolize the spirit of high-quality craftsmanship that has for so long characterized the nation's manufacturers
