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 testing programs. 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.

What is drug-free workplace testing?

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 test for drugs 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.

Increased Productivity

red checkmark iconIs an onsite drug-free workplace testing program right for my business?

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 do drug tests have found:

  • Employee healthcare expenditures have been reduced.
  • Increases in efficiency, output, and positivity from workers.
  • Decreases in absenteeism, injuries, downtime, turnover, and theft.
  • Respect for national or state mandates
  • Identifying workers who may have alcohol or drug problems and providing them with referrals
  • Promoting a risk-free working environment

How do I pick the right drug-free policy?

If your business is considering instituting a drug testing program, you must first draft a comprehensive policy. If you want to make adjustments to your policy, consider these questions

  • What are the aims of this new policy, and what are the rules?
  • When, where, and how frequently will there be tests?
  • Will there be pre-employment, random, or post-incident screenings?
  • How will you let others know about the program?
  • What would happen if someone tested positive, assuming it even happened?
  • Do you have access to an SAP (specialist in the treatment of addiction)?
  • If so, how would you describe your preferred approach?

Additional Reading

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.
