DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING PROCEDURES
What Employees Should Know

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: Our dedication to fair and accurate testing starts with following standard procedures.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING PROCEDURES FOR EMPLOYEES:

There are several reasons why an employer will request that you submit a drug test, including pre-employment, reasonable suspicion/cause, random, return-to-duty, follow-up, and post-accident testing. If your employer requests that you submit to a drug test, you must comply with the following four steps:

1. REPORT TO A COLLECTION SITE TO BE TESTED

Often, testing is in the form of urinalysis, where a sample is collected in a sealed kit and proper paperwork is filled out. Workplace Safety Screenings sends on-site sample collectors to your location to retrieve your sample. You may be asked to submit a collection sample at another location, however.

2. THE SAMPLE IS SENT TO LABORATORY FOR TESTING

Once collected, the sample is sent to a lab to be tested and the results are expedited to a medical review officer (MRO) to be examined. A determination is made if a positive result exists and/or if the sample has been altered or substituted.

3. YOU CAN SEEK ANOTHER TEST IF NEEDED

An MRO has the right to interview you and requests that you be examined by an MRO-approved physician. As an employee, you have the right to seek another test from a certified lab within 72 hours of your interview from an MRO.

4. RECEIVE VERIFIED RESULTS

Results can be received in as little as 24 hours for negative, positive, and/or a refusal to test.
