Over time, a drug testing policy can reduce turnover and increase both productivity and employee morale. Following are examples of situations that may warrant drug testing and could be outlined in your drug free workplace program:
Pre-Employment: A proactive approach to your applicant screening process and an effective means for deterring undesirables from applying.
Pre-Promotion: An effective means to maintain a drug free workplace and decrease the chance of promoting someone who is using or abusing drugs.
Annual Physical: Test employees during annual physicals to refer current users for assistance or disciplinary action as stated in your drug free workplace policy.
Random: An effective way to promote employee safety and security, and to protect property and equipment.
Post-Accident: Test to determine whether accidents are drug or alcohol related, deterring workers’ compensation claims and increasing safety.
