Policy vs Program 

The policy provides information to help employers develop a drug-free workplace, but a complete drug and alcohol workplace program has everything it needs for the drug-free workplace to be successful and sustainable. From the start of hiring an employee until during employment. 

Not only does it help keep the workplace safe and comply with federal regulations, it also helps businesses to be eligible for insurance discounts, rebates and other incentives.
