Putnam County – In an effort to address the safety and economic
threat of drug abuse in the workplace, Putnam County is one of 17
Ohio communities participating in the Working Partners® Drug-Free
Workforce Community Initiative. This statewide initiative is a public-private
partnership, funded in part by the Ohio Department of Mental Health
and Addiction Services.
The Initiative’s objectives are to increase an employable, drug-free workforce in Ohio; build healthier, more productive and economically sound
workplaces; and to create systems to educate employees to prevent drug use among employees now and in the future. To achieve these
objectives the Initiative is modeled after a program developed by drug-free workplace industry experts, Working Partners®.
