Random Drug ScreeningTweet This
Random drug screening is a company wide selection process in which a pre-determined percentage of employees are chosen from a computer generated program to be drug tested. Employees have an equal chance of being selected for drug screening each time selections are made.
A random drug screening program is important because bias is taken away from any one individual. Placing employees in a selection pool is a deterrent to illegal drug use because all active employees are subject to drug testing. Pre-employment testing is a great way to confirm new hires are not under the influence of illegal substances. However, random testing is one of the best ways to ensure already hired employees are drug-free. There are times when employers are able to tell when an individual is abusing illegal drugs. However, this is not always the case. Maintaining a drug testing program for your company discourages drug use and also eliminates the dangers that come along with those that do abuse illegal substances.
