Over the years, dependency on drugs (legal/illegal) by people in the workforce has increased. This rise in substance abuse not only affects the user, and impair job performance, but also costs employers billions annually due to inefficient job performance, workplace accidents, and absenteeism.

According to research, a large proportion of work-related accidents are instigated by workers under the influence of substances like alcohol, opiates and heroin. 60% of poor performance in the workplace and 40% of all accidents in the workplace are related to substance use/abuse.

70% of individuals who abuse drugs are employed full time. About 17% of the workforce in the UK is made up of illicit drug users, and each year, 3 million of these employees clock in at work under the influence of substance like narcotics, opiates and others. In addition, an estimated 24% of workers have drunk alcohol during work hours at least once in the past year and 15% of workers are occasionally drunk at work.

The UK economy is reported to lose £21 billion to alcohol abuse and £15 billion to drug abuse each year, and employers lose about £7.3 billion yearly due to lack of productivity as a result of the misuse of alcohol.

When interviewed, 1 in 10 small businesses disclosed they had experienced an employee under the effect of drugs during work hours.

      The manufacturer of the P3 Protect respirator has pledged to become Net Zero by 2030.
      In order to calculate their carbon footprint measurements they use the SME Climate Hub: smeclimatehub.org/start-measuring/

      They’re also graduates of the Climate Fit course, that helps SMEs reduce their carbon emissions and join the collective race to Net Zero.

      They monitor their own Scope 3 emissions as part of their carbon reduction plan. This includes their downstream supply chain. For example, transport, storage and distribution. Product end of life’ (downstream) measurement depends upon the method and the extent to which this is mitigated by closed or open-loop recycling and other factors.

      For ‘cradle-to-the grave’ carbon output, the factory is creating their own carbon reduction plan, including waste and everything else, to the point that a product leaves the factory gates.

      As a Cop26 Hero of Net Zero award winner, they are constantly looking at ways to limit their carbon footprint and continue as far as possible, without reliance on offset.

      Whatever emissions remain in the atmosphere are removed elsewhere.

      The manufacturer has signed up to Gold Standard, which is considered the best in the world. They offset the remainder of their carbon through the purchase of Gold Standard-certified carbon credits into sustainable projects around the world: https://www.goldstandard.org
      They don't have larger company statutory reporting requirements, so are entering into the NHS supply chain with Evergreen, the Sustainable Supplier Assessment. This self-assessment and reporting tool shares sustainability credentials. They are currently tier 1 of 4 and working towards reducing emissions further.

      The sustainability narrative for manufacturing Net Zero PPE is underpinned by:

      • Sustainable design for manufacture, results in production and consumption patterns with the mantra "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle"
      • Reducing the amount of energy required to manufacture, use, clean and recycle products
      • Opting for renewable energy
      • Only using recyclable and/or reusable materials, including reusable and recyclable filters to limit material ending up in landfill

      An IVD Medical Device is defined in the IVDR as “any medical device which is a reagent, reagent product, calibrator, control material, kit, instrument, apparatus, piece of equipment, software or system, whether used alone or in combination, intended by the manufacturer to be used in vitro for the examination of specimens derived from the human body.

      In vitro diagnostics (IVDs) are tests that can detect disease, conditions and infections. In vitro simply means 'in glass', meaning these tests are typically conducted in test tubes, cassettes and similar equipment, as opposed to in vivo tests, which are conducted in the body itself.
