Employers in Georgia, certified by the state Board of Workers' Compensation as having a drug-free workplace, are entitled to a 7.5% discount on their workers' compensation premiums. It is designed to assist businesses in achieving drug-free certification. As a business member, you will have the opportunity to participate in a statewide drug-free workplace program established by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
Serving as the contact agency for Pickens County, the Chamber can help you meet Workers' Compensation requirements for premium discounts. A membership and participation fee is required. A company must also write a drug-free policy, implement an employee assistance program, and establish drug testing policies and procedures. An additional requirement that must be met is the provision of educational programs and services. Through the Chamber and support agencies, we can help you meet this need - at no cost to your business.
