Employment drug screening is used to proactively protect business from the negative impacts of hiring alcoholics or drug users. Drug Screening is performed after a conditional offer of employment has been made and a negative drug test results is required before an applicant starts working.
We recommend to most employers to have a drug screening program as part of their employment efforts. Pre-employment urine testing is required among federally regulated employers who employ individuals in safety sensitive positions including truck, bus, taxi drivers, airplane pilots and railroad employees.
Drug screening is just one more effort for an employer to provide a safe and productive work environment.
