Pre-Employment Drug Testing
Alliance 2020 assists companies in protecting their organizations against drug abuse. Pre-employment drug screening helps prevent the hiring of individuals who abuse drugs and is essential in the onboarding process.
Substance abuse takes a heavy toll on American businesses. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, workplace drug use costs employers $81 billion annually. Left unchecked, drug abuse can seriously compromise the integrity and stability of your workplace.
Employee drug testing became more common after the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988. Mandatory drug testing guidelines were subsequently developed for many federal employees. Federal employers are required to follow drug testing protocol established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Every business and industry is unique and every employer should carefully determine how they should screen new hires. Alliance 2020 is here for you and can help you in your quest to achieve a drug free workplace.
Random Drug Testing
Random drug testing is a proven way to deter employee drug abuse. Whether you are required by the DOT to have a federally compliant drug testing program, or simply desire a drug free workplace, Alliance 2020 can help. For over 15 years, we have managed effective drug screening programs.
Employees could pass a pre-employment drug screening but start using drugs after they’re hired. Periodically testing your employees for drugs is ideal to achieving the safest, most efficient workplace possible.
Alliance 2020 has numerous options available when it comes to random drug testing. Our panel options range from 4-12 and both instant (POCT) and lab-based testing is available. We also offer the convenience of onsite drug testing.
If You Want a Drug Free Workplace
Random drug testing is a great way to help prevent workplace drug abuse. In fact, not many employees need to be tested to significantly reduce drug usage.
Once employees learn they are subject to random drug testing, you should notice an immediate difference. After a few people are selected for testing, drug use will almost surely decrease.
How Random Drug Testing Works
Send us a list of your employees who are subject to testing. If you are DOT regulated, let us know what operating agency you fall under and we’ll handle the rest. If you are not federally mandated, let us know how many employees you want tested, and how often you want them tested. We use our random selection technology to eliminate bias and provide accurate random selections.
