Protect Your Team and Your Business
As a result of the correlation between substance misuse and an increase in absenteeism, accidents on the job, and bad health, many businesses have begun to develop preventative measures. A number of studies have been conducted over the years, and the results of these studies indicate that when drug testing measures are in place, there is a significant rise in workplace safety and accident rate. This is why many jobs that require security clearance utilize Veritas’ Drug-Free Workplace Testing in Los Angeles. By bringing drug testing to your company, Veritas Healthcare makes your life and the life of your human resources department easier. Get in touch with us to learn more about onsite testing and a wellness program's advantages to your Los Angeles-based business.
In the event of an accident or incident, or if an employee is exhibiting any indications or symptoms of substance abuse, many companies have a drug and alcohol policy that allows for them to take a test. In addition, this policy also allows for testing in the event that an employee exhibits any signs or symptoms of substance abuse. A "for cause" evaluation is what's referred to in the legal field. In addition, some businesses conduct limited drug tests on employees in a random fashion, while others demand that potential employees submit to a Drug-Free Workplace Testing before they are recruited. Testing of this kind has the potential to lower the amount of alcohol and drug use that occurs in the workplace, which would result in measurable advantages for the organization.
You can detect and prevent drug usage in the workplace by testing existing and prospective employees. Marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and painkillers are the most frequently abused substances. Many companies that have implemented our Los Angeles Drug-Free Workplace Testing have found:
If your business is considering instituting a Drug-Free Workplace Testing program, you must first draft a comprehensive policy. If you want to make adjustments to your policy, consider these questions
It's possible your policy will require some tweaking to make it work for your business, depending on its line of work. In response to incidences in high-risk sectors (including transportation, construction, and oil and gas) that have been linked to drug and alcohol use, these sectors are instituting more stringent drug testing standards. In addition, some businesses are demanding "safety-sensitive" workers to disclose the use of any drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, that may affect their ability to do their jobs safely. The Department of Transportation (DOT) issued new rules for drug testing programs on January 1, 2018. Newly added to the list of opioids that must be tested for in DOT-regulated programs are hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone.
After the policy has been drafted, it should be reviewed to verify it is up-to-date, complies with applicable state and federal regulations (such as state marijuana legislation), and considers all relevant characteristics and processes.
