Pre-Employment Drug Testing Is Critical To
Workplace Safety
Maintaining a drug-free workplace is an integral
part of safety working environment.
Pre-employment drug testing or tests is a common
method employers use to screen potential hires
for safety and culture fit within an
organization. Taking this preventive step has
been proven to reduce the risk of drug-related
work accidents. Employee drug testing became
common after the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.
Employing proper pre-employment drug testing or
test procedures is an impactful, proactive step
you can take to reduce work injuries. Pre
employment drug testing or test including hair
follicle drug testing is growing in popularity
because of its ability to go deeper into an
individuals drug use history. As we know
illegal drug use and alcohol affect
concentration, cognitive function and judgment,
putting both the drug user and co-workers in
danger. There is nothing good about drug and
alcohol abuse in the workplace. Increased
accidents, injuries, and sick days mean lost
productivity which costs employers tremendously.
One accident can cost an employer millions.
Reducing substance abuse in the workplace reduces
the risk of accidents of all kinds.
Pre-employment drug testing is a very effective
way to reduce potential problems before they
occur. Drug testing methods include urine drug
tests, hair follicle drug tests, and saliva drug
tests. Hair follicle testing is actually a
misnomer, since the hair is not pulled out by the
root, but cut at skin level. Urine and saliva
drug tests detect recent drug use and Hair
Follicle Drug Testing drug tests can provide up
to 90 days of detection. Which method of pre
employment drug testing is performed depends on
cost and the employers needs. Using a competent
and certified drug testing program administrator
is your best assurance that your drug testing
program will be effective and defensible if
challenged. A successful pre employment drug
testing program promotes a safe, productive
workplace and ensures a multitude of other
benefits both for employer and employees. Its
the right (and the duty) of every employer to
maintain a safe, drug-free workplace. Job
applicants understand that drug testing is part
of the employee screening process and that if
they dont abuse or misuse drugs or alcohol, they
have nothing to be concerned about. Conclusion T
he greatest benefit of pre-employment drug
testing is its potential to reduce risk, increase
safety, and maintain a productive workplace. In
addition, reemployment drug testing can weed out
potential bad hires, thereby reducing employee
turnover and absenteeism.
