Drug and alcohol testing is done to improve safety in the workplace. In many situations, people who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at work will put themselves and others at risk. Companies run these tests to deter people who are working on their sites from using drugs and alcohol at work. It mitigates the risk of injury and property damage, and helps companies establish a strong safety culture.
Drug testing is not intended to measure levels of impairment. Instead, drug tests tell you specific factual information, for example: that specific drug concentration levels have been verified above the established cutoff levels. A test result showing levels above these cutoff levels only indicates a heightened safety risk, not impairment. Additionally, a positive alcohol and/or drug test does not tell if an individual has a dependency issue. For that, we depend on the evaluation of a substance abuse expert.
While workplace safety, and deterring people from using drugs and/or alcohol at work, are two main reasons for drug testing, there are also a few other reasons:
