A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen, for example, urine, hair, blood, breath, sweat, or oral fluid/saliva-to determine the presence or absence of specified parent drugs or their metabolites.
Major applications of drug testing include detection of the presence of performance-enhancing steroids in sports, employers screening for drugs prohibited by law (such as cannabis, cocaine and heroin) and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol (ethanol) in the blood commonly referred to as BAC (blood alcohol content). BAC tests are typically administered via a Breathalyzer while urinalysis is used for the vast majority of drug testing in sports and the workplace.
Why do you need to perform Drug and Medical Screening?
It’s an obvious observation that substance abusers are less productive, more prone to errors, a workplace safety threat and more likely to file workers’ compensation claims.
It is essential for organizations to protect your workforce with reliable drug and health screening solutions. Many companies and institutions have adopted employee drug-testing policies to preserve the safety and productivity of their employees and organizations. By implementing an effective and accredited drug testing program, employers can reduce the harmful effects of drug abuse including absenteeism, tardiness, employee turnover, attitude problems, embezzlement, low productivity, crime and violence.
Depending on your pre-employment screening needs, drug tests can provide accurate, compliant drug testing, alcohol testing and any necessary physical or medical examinations.
