All business are unique within the workplace. Every employer should make a careful determination about the drug testing programs that are most beneficial for their workplace. Pre-employment and random drug testing can help to improve employee morale and productivity while decreasing absenteeism, accidents, downtime, turnover, and theft. Keep your business and employees safe.
Shots & More is committed to providing drug and alcohol testing for employers wanting to keep substance abuse out of their workplace. Our drug testing services are available at our office or as a scheduled visit to your workplace.
Reasons for Drug Testing
Pre-employment Test: Pre-employment testing is conducted to prevent the hiring of individuals who illegally use drugs. If you institutionalize drug testing at your workplace, you can then move to test all job candidates. That is, you can make passing a drug test a condition of being hired. If you choose to have a policy of zero tolerance for substance abuse at your workplace, you will find it much easier to dismiss a candidate for employment whom you have yet to hire than an employee who has been on your payroll for any period of time.
Random Test: An employer selects, using a truly random selection process, one or more individuals from all the employees included in the employer’s workplace drug testing program. A random selection process precludes an employer from attempting to pre-select a particular employee for a drug test.
Reasonable Suspicion/Cause Test: An employee is required to provide a specimen when there is sufficient evidence to indicate that the employee may have used an illicit substance. Typically, the evidence is based on the direct observations made by supervisors or co-workers that an employee has used or possesses illicit substances, exhibits physical symptoms of being under the influence, and has patterns of abnormal or erratic behavior.
Post-accident Test: An employee is required to provide a specimen after being involved in an accident or incident on the job. The results of such a test may provide evidence as to the cause of the accident or incident.
Return to Duty Test: An employee is required to provide a specimen to ensure that the employee is drug-free before being allowed to return to work.
Follow-up Test: An employee is tested at random intervals after returning to work to ensure that the employee remains drug-free. Type your paragraph here. Type your paragraph here.
