Our employee drug screening programs include:

 

Pre-employment /Post Offer drug testing

Pre Employment, also know as Post Offer drug testing (Offer of employment is contingent on passing a drug screen) has become a common hiring requirement and more and more employers are implementing drug testing and screening procedures. For example majority of Fortune 500 companies do employee drug screening.

Most pre-employment drug testing is urine-based. This form of testing is considered to be an 'intelligent' test. Generally pre-employment drug screening helps the employer to develop a healthy and more productive working environment, improves profits and also helps in monitoring drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace. Most companies have a written drug testing policy that requires job applicants to be drug-free. All applicants who have received a conditional offer of employment must take a drug test before receiving a final offer of employment.

Random drug testing

Random drug testing is the most effective format with a growing number of corporations using this form of testing. The objective of a random drug test is deterrence, as the threat of detection is much higher versus other testing methods. The goal of random testing is to discourage drug use among employees by not telling anyone who or when or where they are to be tested in advance.

Post accident drug testing

An employee is required to undergo a drug test after an accident to determine if he/she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident. Post-Accident drug testing is often used in the transportation, manufacturing, and construction industries or when a company vehicle is involved. This type of testing can reduce the company's liability. Companies that implement this type of testing are often eligible for lower insurance and worker's compensation rates.

Reasonable Suspicion or Probable Cause drug testing

Probable drug testing is carried out when an employee is suspected to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at work. This term should be defined within a company's Drug Testing policy to prevent discrimination. Typically, at least 2 supervisors should document abnormal behavior warranting this kind of testing.

Return to duty drug testing

Employees who have violated their companies' drug testing policy and are allowed to return to work must submit to a return-to-duty test. Follow-up tests are conducted unannounced and at least six tests will are generally conducted in the first 12 months after an employee returns to duty. Follow-up testing may also be extended for up to 60 months following return to duty. The test results of all return-to-duty and follow-up tests of the employees must be negative.

Follow-up drug testing

Much in the same manner as return to duty drug testing, employees who have previously violated their companies' drug testing policies must submit to return to duty and consequent follow up drug testing. Follow-up drug testing is usually and most often tailor Return to duty drug testing.
