Employment drug testing is becoming more common in both the public and private sectors. Many businesses require their employees to pass regular substance testing to ensure their safety on the job as well as that of other workers and the public. Most commonly, WorkHealth provides workplace drug testing services to these employers, such as administering breath alcohol tests.
Your employer may require a negative drug or alcohol test result before considering you for employment. Workplace drug testing will often continue after hire, including random drug testing or as follow-up to a positive test result.
