Buy a Drug Test specializes in easy to use drug test kits for employers, that can be administered in the privacy of the workplace.
When testing your employees it’s important to know why you are testing them and what drugs you wish to test for. Drug testing in the workplace needs to be structured so that your employees understand what it’s all about. You need to have an employee drug free workplace policy. This would explain what your company’s tolerances are to drug use and abuse. Include procedures for testing after an accident, pre-employment, reasonable suspicion, etc.
Let them read and understand the contents of the policy. It should be clear and concise, detailing such aspects as what if an employee is positive, or what if a person is involved in an accident etc. Once your employees are issued their own copy of the policy, then drug testing becomes a straightforward process.
Here are the questions you need to answer to build your drug free policy.
- What is the purpose/goal of your policy?
- Who will be covered by your policy?
- When will your policy apply?
- What behavior will be prohibited?
- Will employees be required to notify you of drug-related convictions?
- Will your policy include searches?
- Will your program include drug testing?
- What will the consequences be if your policy is violated?
- Will there be Return-to-Work Agreements?
- What type of assistance will be available?
- How will employee confidentiality be protected?
- Who will be responsible for enforcing your policy?
- How will your policy be communicated to employees?
The next thing to decide is what drugs you want to test. Typically SAMHSA recommends a minimum of a 5 panel test. This includes; marijuana, opiates, amphetamines, cocaine and phencyclidine. When purchasing test kits, don’t just go for the cheapest! If you were to test your employees at a testing facility you would likely pay anything from $30 to $60 per employee for the same test. The price is very important but the test result is even more important. At Buy a Drug Test we have the best prices and the most accurate tests available.
Finally, what if you test an employee and they test non-negative? Their sample should be sent to our SAMSHA approved lab for confirmation. Confirmation is a process called Gas-Chromatography / Mass-Spectrometry (GC/MS). This is a process where the sample is further analyzed to confirm and quantify the non-negative result and confirm the result is a positive or not. Please call 323-863-2410 to arrange a lab test.
