First Choice Drug Testing

The last thing an employed drug user wants to do is pee in a cup. They will go to extreme lengths to defraud or not take the drug test. Their livelihood is on the line. We often tell stories about someone trying to pass off someone else’s urine as their own, but what if they don’t have a chance to get clean pee? What if the drug test is unannounced?

Drug Policy for workplace

The modern workplace often comes with certain hazards, and one of the most important ways to reduce exposure to accidents and other liability is to implement rigorous safety procedures. Unfortunately, recreational drug use is currently as popular as ever. In addition to the obviously increased risk of workplace accidents, illicit drug use can lead to other problems, such as declining productivity, excessive tardiness and absenteeism, and increased turnover. That’s why it is important to institute drug screening procedures. Participation in the Arkansas Voluntary Drug-Free Workplace Program qualifies you for a 5% discount on your workers’ compensation insurance premium. Participation in this program requires a pre-employment drug testing, post-accident drug and alcohol testing, and testing if there is reasonable suspicion of use. Many companies also institute random screenings in an effort to ensure consistent employee compliance.

A standard component of hiring commercial drivers is ordering a DOT physical exam along with a drug test to confirm that they are drug free, and that they meet all of the physical requirements to complete the daily responsibilities of the job. Urinalysis is also a standard component of the exams to test for health problems that could affect their abilities to operate a truck or commercial vehicle safely.
