CSF-LGU Employees Undergo Drug Test [ Wednesday, 25th of October 2017 | 6 months ago ]

750 employees, including city officials and department heads, of the local government of San Fernando underwent drug testing on October 23 during the Preventive Drug Education and Advocacy Orientation.

Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago said this is pursuant to the Memorandum Circular issued by the Civil Service Commission that mandates all public officials and government employees to a random drug test as a condition for continuous employment.
"We have tested half of the population of the LGU employees. They were selected randomly through electronic raffle system," Santiago added.

The test was conducted by the DrugCheck Philippines Incorporated and results are expected to be released after three weeks.

According to CSC, any government official or employee who test positive shall undergo a Drug Dependency Examination. This will only be conducted by the Department of Health (DOH) or any of its accredited medical practitioners to assess what type of user the person is and determine the treatment he or she needs.

"This is the first time that the City Hall employees have undergone drug test. Aside from strengthening the anti-drug campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte, this will also boost public’s trust in the government" Mayor EdSa furthered.

Meanwhile, the employees were also oriented about the cause and effects of substance abuse and the effective ways to treat and prevent drug-related disorders.

They were also reminded to refrain taking cigarettes and alcohol which are also known as dangerous combo that causes harm to the human body.
