Substance abuse is a serious workplace problem.

Studies show that when comparing drug-free workers with alcohol/drug abusers, substance abusers are more likely to be:

  • Far less productive. 
  • Miss more workdays. 
  • More likely to injure themselves or someone else. 
  • File more workers’ compensation claims.

What Drugs Is Your Company Testing For?

Two of the most common drug screens that employers are requesting are the 5-panel and the 10-panel drug tests.

The 5-panel drug test screens for the following:

  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamine/Methamphetamine
  • Opiates such as heroin, codeine and morphine
  • Phencyclidine or PCP
  • THC (marijuana)

The 10-panel drug test includes:

  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opiates such as heroin, codeine and morphine
  • Phencyclidine or PCP
  • THC (marijuana)
  • Propoxyphene
  • Methadone
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines

Obviously if an applicant isn’t using cocaine, heroin, meth, PCP, or pot, the assumption is that they should pass the 5-panel with no problem. However, some marijuana use may not be detected, if THC has been removed (as is common with medical marijuana). Also, prescription pain medication and other prescriptions such as adderall, penicillin, novocaine, hydrocodone or oxycodone could be detected.

Pre-Employment Testing

Pre-Employment Testing – Offering employment only after a negative drug test result.
Goal: To decrease the chance of hiring someone who is currently using or abusing drugs.
Pre-Promotion Tests. Testing employees prior to promotion within the organization.
Goal: To decrease the chance of promoting someone who is currently using or abusing drugs.
Annual Physical Tests. Testing employees for alcohol and other drug use as part of their annual physical.
Goal: To identify current users and abusers so they can be referred for assistance and/or disciplinary action

Random Testing

Testing a selected group of employees at random and unpredictable. Most commonly used in safety and security-sensitive positions. 

Goal: To discourage use and abuse by making testing unpredictable, and to identify current users and abusers so they can be referred for assistance and/or disciplinary action if needed.

Reasonable Suspicion Testing

Testing employees who show obvious signs of being unfit for duty (For Cause) or have documented patterns of unsafe work behavior (Reasonable Suspicion). 

Goal: To protect the safety and well-being of the employee and other coworkers and to provide the opportunity for rehabilitation if the employee tests positive.
