Random Drug and Alcohol Testing for Non-DOT Companies in Cary
Although not required by regulation, many non-DOT or non-regulated employers often conduct random drug and alcohol testing. These non-DOT programs can be customized and managed by US Drug Test Centers in Cary.
The best tool employers have for deterring drug and alcohol use in the workplace is random testing. This type of drug and alcohol program saves lives and prevents injuries by assisting employers with identifying workers who have substance abuse issues and help facilitate their treatment. It also reduces an employer’s liability. Random drug and alcohol testing programs also benefits employees. Drug testing in the workplace allows employees to easily say no to illegal drug use. It is also a fair way of testing. Computers generate the list of employees to be tested, which ensures that it is indeed random and that each person in the workforce population has an equal chance of being selected for testing, regardless of whether that person was recently tested or not.
