Florida Drug Testing

Florida drug testing is vital for employers, employees, and individuals living in the state. With the rise in the use of marijuana, plus our country's opioid epidemic, keeping drug use at bay is more important than ever. Keep reading to learn more about how US Drug Test Centers is helping keep drugs and alcohol out of Florida businesses, communities, and families!

Managing Your Drug-Free Workplace Program

As an employer, your drug testing program protects you, your team, and your business as a whole. Drug use at work hurts productivity, increases on-the-job accidents and crimes, and causes a rise in employee turnover. Plus, it's bad for morale.

Overall, drug use in the workplace is costing US employers tens of billions of dollars every year.

US Drug Test Centers can help you manage your drug-free workplace program from top to bottom. This includes:

  • Conducting all of your drug testing, including reasonable suspicion drug testing, random testing, pre-employment drug screening, post-accident testing, and return-to-duty drug testing.

  • Training your staff, including your designated employer representative (DER), to manage your drug-free workplace program (including random testing) and also recognize signs of impairment to determine reasonable suspicion.

  • Carefully crafting the employer's drug testing policy. This includes details like what constitutes reasonable suspicion, when employees are required to undergo drug testing, what happens if there's a positive confirmed drug test, and how random testing is conducted to remove bias and ensure fair and accurate testing.

  • Conducting your background checks. You can order and view them electronically.

A bulletproof drug testing program is a crucial part of keeping your business free of drug use. Learn more about our employee/employer drug testing and services.

Why Us for Florida Drug Testing?

What makes US Drug Test Centers different from other testing facilities, and how are we able to provide the most accurate drug test results in a timely manner?

Accuracy and Precision

US Drug Test Centers only partners with SAMHSA-certified drug testing laboratories. This type of testing laboratory is held to higher standards when it comes to the specific processes followed and equipment used.

Additionally, all drug test results are reviewed by a medical review officer (MRO). A medical review officer is a licensed physician. Let's say an employee receives a positive test result, but they suspect it was a false-positive triggered by a prescription or nonprescription medication.

A medical review officer will validate if it's a positive confirmed drug test result or not.
