Utah is no stranger to natural beauty with national parks like Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyon lands all residing in its back yard. It is home to some of the fastest developing cities in the nation and over 3 million residents. Utah is also home to some of the worst heroin problems in the nation. With heroin overdoses tripling since 2007 making Utah the 7th highest for overdoses in the nation, and nearly 600 opioid related deaths a year, the community of Utah has been plunged into an epidemic. Heroin has been the main problem in Utah until recently when synthetic opioids like fentanyl taking the leading stage. Prescription drugs also pose a huge threat to Utah as the number of deaths from opioid prescriptions has increased by 400% since 2000.

Employers in Utah may set up drug testing programs for the workplace. Utah employers may require applicants to take a drug test as a condition of employment, as long as employers and management also submit to periodic testing. Testing may be conducted only according to the employer’s written policy, which must be available for review by prospective employees.
Employers may require testing for these reasons:
The employer must have a written drug test policy that has been distributed to employees. Testing must occur during or immediately after the employee's regular work schedule. An employer may take action against an employee if the employee refuses to be tested or fails the test. (A failed test is a confirmed positive result for drugs, an adulterated sample, or a substituted sample.)
A robust web-based platform is available for employers to manage drug testing programs with certified Medical Review Officers (MROs). This program allows for electronic ordering of drug testing and random drug testing management for DOT and non DOT programs. DOT consortium drug testing programs are also available. Employers in Utah implementing comprehensive drug testing programs have an opportunity to potentiality deny unemployment claims and workers compensation insurance claims based on employees testing positive for illegal drugs.
