WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
WORKPLACE DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING
Companies need a detailed drug and Alcohol testing policy that is well communicated. Drug testing as part of a Drug Free
Workplace Program has been successful in lowering the rates of positive tests. Many companies are starting to
include prescription medications in their testing panel, including certain prescription opioids. Some employers require
different policies to address requirements for safety sensitive positions, union guidelines, or other entities like the U.S.
Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines for regulated motor carriers, airline pilots, train operators and others.
WHEN YOU SHOULD DRUG AND ALCOHOL TEST YOUR EMPLOYEES
• Drug testing should be done pre-employment. This will avoid the
hiring of individuals who are actively abusing drugs.
• Drug and Alcohol testing should also be done post-incident. People using drugs are at increased risk of errors
and injury. This also may help protect the employer if there is any litigation following the incident.
• Testing should be done for reasonable suspicion. In your company policy, define the factors
that may give rise to a reasonable suspicion, including objective factors, such as an employee’s
appearance, speech and behavior, as well as any other information specific to your workplace.
• Drug testing should also be done randomly for people who work in safety-sensitive positions.
Contract with a reputable testing company that is certified to provide these services. A Medical Review Officer
should review all positive results, as interpretation can be complicated. A Medical Review Officer (MRO)
is a licensed physician responsible for receiving and reviewing laboratory results generated by an
employer’s drug testing program and evaluating medical explanations for certain drug test results.
TYPES OF DRUG TESTING AVAILABLE
Urine Drug Testing (UDS) Urine is most commonly tested substance for drugs. It is easily obtained and there
is a broad range of testing that can be done. There is a lot of information on the Internet, however, on how to
cover-up illicit drugs in urine tests. There are very specific guidelines when observed collection is indicated.
Rapid/Instant Drug Testing Rapid screening can allow detection of drugs that might metabolize quickly and not be detectable at a later screening. Screening for most drugs of abuse can be performed. Rapid tests can be performed at an employers workplace. Any specimens that screen positive would still require a confirmatory test. Confirmatory test results are typically available in 24 to 72 days.
Oral Fluids Collecting oral fluids makes it much harder to compromise testing. At this time, oral fluid
testing cannot test for as many drugs as urine drug tests but this technology is improving rapidly.
Hair Testing Hair testing is more expensive than urine and oral fluid testing. It does have the advantage
of detecting any drug use over the previous 90 days.
