Implementing a Drug-Free Workplace Program

There are many types of workplace drug tests available and employers increasingly embrace the drug-free workplace state and federal laws, allowing for pre-employment, suspicion of use and random. At the time of a workplace accident, there are also tests administered to assure that it was not a drug-related incident. Pre-employment drug testing is offered at many drug screening centers to assure the safety and health of their employees and the work environment.

Applicants are given the information that they will be administered a drug test upon the offer of a position. This testing is a 5-panel test and if there are any positive results, they must be given in writing to the applicant. This has been found to be a positive pre-screening measure to cut down on those applicants who may be actively using drugs. This can save the companies financially and will also cut down and even avoid legal problems.

Benefits of Drug Testing for Employers

The high cost of health and workers compensatory insurance is creating a greater need to maintain the cost of the overall business finances and to assure that employees are healthy and safe. If an employee has tested positive they may lose some of the benefits that would have been paid by the company. There is also the subtle cultural change that occurs at a company that adheres to these policies for the better. If an employee refuses the drug test, they may lose their benefits for insurance paid by the business.

It has been proven that with a drug-free workplace policy in place there is a decrease in workplace accidents, absenteeism, theft and issues with authority. Employees are also credited to be more productive, make fewer mistakes and have a better overall attitude. Pre-employment drug testing is available with one phone call to the US Drug Test Centers.
