Workplace Drug TestingForward Edge Associates has over fifteen years experience in helping companies develop and manage workplace testing. The key elements of a successful workplace testing program are as follows:

Before testing begins, the company should have a written employee substance abuse policy that has been fully communicated to the employees.

Drug Testing is a proven method to reduce employee drug use in the workplace. To create and maintain a drug-free workplace environment it is recommended that companies implement the following types of testing:

Pre-employment Testing: Before any job candidate is hired they should be required to pass a drug test. This approach helps keep problem employees from entering your organization.

Random Testing: This is a program where a company keeps all the employees in a testing pool, and periodically selects a certain percentage of the employees for testing. The selection process is best handled by a computer with each employee having an equal chance of being selected for testing.

Post-Accident Testing: This type of testing helps the employer determine if substance abuse contributed to an accident, and is another tool to help identify substance abuse.

Reasonable-Suspicion Testing: This type of testing is used when trained supervisors observe employee behavior that is consistent with drug abuse. The supervisor should document such behavior in writing when this type of test is requested.
