A rock solid drug-free workplace policy is the backbone of your business. US Drug Test Centers will help you craft a policy that fits all of your needs.

On the same note, we'll manage choosing employees for random drug testing, as well. This protects you as the employer from any liabilities stemming from bias while picking employees at random.

Do you already have a drug-free workplace policy? We'll help you make it even better than it already is so you and your staff are always protected.
