The bad news is that substance abuse today costs the average American business more than 25 percent of annual profits through added health care and compensation expenses, poor productivity, liability, theft, and impaired decision making. The good news is that substance abuse represents your largest, single, changeable operating cost. Eliminate it from your workplace, and both profits and productivity are certain to increase dramatically. Here's a timely, much-needed book that offers legally sound, clinically-based guidelines for setting up a comprehensive identification and intervention program to deal with drug and alcohol problems at your company. Written by two of America's leading experts in the field of substance abuse, Creating and Maintaining the Drug-Free Work force features a proven "win-win" approach that has been shown capable of motivating even the most troubled employees to get clean and stay clean. You'll learn the legal grounds for employer intervention, as defined by current federal and state laws and regulations; telltale signs that indicate a particular employee may be abusing alcohol or drugs; the pros and cons of conducting pre-employment for-cause, post-accident, random, or re-entry drug testing; how to intervene successfully when you lack hard evidence of substance abuse (early intervention) and the different methods to use when you have proof that a problem exists (late intervention); what you need to know up-front about the "addiction syndrome" - a pattern of denial, deceit, and dependency that is common to all substance abusers; how to use education and supervisor training to raise employee awareness and prevent future problems from arising; when, where, and how to utilize outside counselors, treatment providers, and self-help recovery programs, with an in-depth analysis that compares all of these various options; how to supervise re-entry, establish a companywide support system, and prevent relapses from occurring; and much more!

Humic substances are naturally occurring organic material, derived from earth and plants, that cause a yellow-brown colouration to water; they are particular problem in water supplies in areas such as Scandinavia, with high humidity and temperatures around freezing, where supplies originating in moorland drainage are important. There are three main groups of reasons for treatment when such waters are to be used for drinking water purposes: aesthetic and organoleptic (sensory); health-related; and practical and economic reasons. All these factors informed a highly successful specialised conference from which these proceedings were selected. Researchers and practitioners involved with the problem of humic substances in water will find these proceedings an essential state-of-the-art reference to this subject. The 32 papers selected here cover the work of many of the world's leading experts, with a wide range of traditional and more innovative approaches to humics removal: Problem identification and overviews Coagulation-separation processes Membrane filtration processes Oxidation/biofiltration processes Sorption processes Humics removal by underground filtration Case studies.
