Drug screening plays a critical role in not only the initial hiring process but also in ensuring that employees are not performing critical job duties under the influence of a controlled substance.
Over the years drug screening has proven to be a highly effective preventive measure for ensuring workplace safety as well as compliance with a wide range of industry safety codes. Routine drug screenings go a long way toward decreasing the risk of an accident, minimizing your company’s liability vulnerability, as well as promoting overall productivity.
Many industries require drug screenings as part of their hiring process and continued employment contracts. At the Federal level, Congress requires any company employed in some way by the federal government to maintain a 100% drug-free workplace.
