Abstract This article discusses the prevention of illegal psychotropic substance abuse in occupational settings. Occupational physicians in France are beginning to implement drug screening and medical supervision of drug-dependent patients. While workplace screening is not compulsory, it is essential in hazardous workplaces with high safety requirements. Company policies with respect to "drug risk" can only be developed through collaboration involving senior management, workers' representatives, occupational physicians and social services, as part of a global approach to the prevention of all hazards. Several examples of company policies and plans are included.
