Drug or Alcohol Testing for Companies

Drug use in the workplace can increase the risk of crime and a work-related accident, it decreases productivity, and it's bad for employee turnover.

We'll help you with your entire drug-free workplace program in the following ways:

  • Complete drug and alcohol testing: We offer pre-employment drug testing for job applicants, reasonable suspicion testing, random drug screening, post-accident drug testing, and return-to-duty drug testing. Workplace drug testing is a must.

  • Drug testing policies: We'll carefully craft your drug testing policy. This defines important details like what type of Minnesota drug and alcohol testing the company requires, how you determine reasonable suspicion, what happens if an employee receives a positive drug test, and the business's stance on cannabis use. A written drug and alcohol testing policy is of utmost importance.

  • Staff training: We'll teach your team to manage your drug and alcohol testing program, determine reasonable suspicion, and more.
