First Choice Drug Testing

Drug Policy for workplace

No matter how hard we try to discourage illicit drug use in the workplace, we can’t (and shouldn’t) monitor our employees’ activities all the time. We only need to concern ourselves with the “extracurricular activities” of a small minority of our employees. It’s unfortunate that our employees who don’t use drugs are subjected to the same rigors of workplace testing as the individuals who are willing to break the law in their spare time, but it’s the price of vigilance. You have a fiduciary duty to your business to protect its employees and assets by instituting a drug testing program.

First Choice can perform any lab test that you require at our Little Rock location, anywhere in the nation, or we can help you create an onsite testing program at your company. Testing at our facility is usually the easiest and most cost-effective and convenient way to test employees and new hires, but not always the best option for some companies. If you work in an industrial or construction setting, you lose more productivity by sending your employees offsite, and a lot of things can happen on that trip. An onsite testing program is one of the most effective ways to keep your employees honest. It’s also a great way to recruit great employees who prefer to work with team members that they can trust.

Some industries offer very clear guidelines about testing procedures, and if yours doesn’t we’ll help you develop a policy and system. If you need to meet any compliance guidelines, we’ll provide any assistance that you need.

An onsite drug testing program is a great way to ensure true peace of mind. It’s always disappointing when good people make bad decisions, but a bad hire can cost you dearly. Illicit drug users are more likely to miss work, be tardy, be involved in workplace accidents, and even steal. Onsite testing is one of the most crucial components of operating a drug-free workplace, and we’re always a phone call or a mouse click away when you’re ready to get started!
