Employment Drug Testing & Screening

Improve workplace productivity and safety with a pre-employment drug screening program.


Why Is Employment Drug Testing Necessary?

  • Decreases employee absenteeism and turnover
  • Reduces risk of accidents and injuries
  • Prevents drug use on the job
  • Identifies drug use early by employees
  • Lowers workers’ compensation rates

What Is Drug Screening For Employment?

The purpose of drug testing is to determine if controlled substances are present in a person’s body.
Drug screening provides evidence of recent use of specific prescription and illicit drugs, but does not measure the specific amount of drug present.


Once a sample is collected from the candidate, an initial screen is run to determine the presence (positive) or absence (negative) of a detectable drug.


Confirmation screening is a second screen, and is generally performed only if the initial screen was positive. Results are reviewed by a Medical Review Officer.


Results (positive or negative) for each drug selected are provided to the employer and candidate within 1-3 days of the test.
