Employers look to OneEighty to provide relevant and accurate Drug-Free Workplace (DFW) trainings. DFW is designed to help employers develop a safer and more cost-effective workplace. Employers who implement a drug-free workplace are choosing to keep their employees safe by reducing the chance of an accident caused by substance abuse. Once implemented, OneEighty can help businesses obtain (if eligible) a discount on workers' compensation premiums for up to five years. The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation also offers financial grants to help offset the cost of implementing a program.
