Testing your workers for drugs/alcohol can oftentimes be perceived as controversial, however, it can be a vital part of your safety program.
Urine Drug Testing: All DOT related drug testing is collected and processed based upon the federal guidelines of urine/drug testing as described in 49CFR Part 40.Non-DOT related drug testing may be performed using instant testing procedures, Federal DOT guidelines, and/or Hair Analysis, based upon your individual wants or needs.
Hair Drug Testing: This form of drug testing shows the abuse of drugs for a longer-term view. The general rule of thumb is that hair grows around 1cm per month; when drugs are consumed, trace evidence of this is secreted as the hair grows. This means that there can be detectable levels of drugs, and a rough estimate of when the growing hair was exposed to the illegal substance.
