How to Maintain a Drug-Free Workplace

Drug use in the workplace can have an immensely negative impact. It's bad for morale and productivity. It can increase the occurrence of on-the-job accidents and crime. And, importantly, it can lead to a climb in employee turnover.

All in all, American employers are spending tens of billions of dollars on drug use every single year.

Here's how we help Arkansas employers:

  • We can conduct all of your drug and alcohol testing, including pre-employment testing, reasonable suspicion drug testing, random screening, post-accident testing, and return-to-duty drug or alcohol testing.

  • We'll carefully construct the company's drug-free workplace program and policy. This outlines details like what kind of screening a job applicant might be required to submit, what counts as "reasonable suspicion," the company's stance on medical marijuana, what happens if an employee tests positive due to legally prescribed medications, how the company avoids privacy violation and removes bias from drug testing, and how the company stays compliant with Arkansas law.

  • We'll conduct all of your background checks. Order and review them electronically.

  • We'll train your staff to manage your drug-free workplace program, recognize the signs of reasonable suspicion, and more.

Why Partner With US Drug Test Centers

What makes us different from other drug testing providers? Here are just a few ways we excel.

Accuracy is Key

We only partner with SAMHSA-certified laboratories, which are held to higher standards and must use certain procedures and equipment.

Furthermore, our test results are verified by a medical review officer (MRO). This person is a licensed physician. MRO verification is important because, as an example, let's say that you have an employee test positive, but they believe it was triggered by a legitimately prescribed medication. An MRO will be able to validate whether the positive test result is accurate or not, in which case, follow-up drug testing might be needed.
