CLS Diagnostics Comprehensive drug tests in Franklin, MA

Alcohol and drug abuse can create safety and health hazards and can result in decrease in productivity and poor employee morale. Drug testing is one way to determine if employees or job applicants are using illegal drugs. Drug testing programs work best when implemented based on a clear, written policy that is shared with all employees, along with proper education on the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to provide help to employees who may have problems with drug and alcohol.

Comprehensive drug tests in Franklin, MA are conducted to prevent hiring individuals who use prohibited drugs. Drug tests allow employers to identify early employees who have drug and alcohol problems. Most employers conduct drug testing for pre-employment purposes as well as for post-accident return-to-work. Commonly, tests are done through urinalysis in which a professional toxicologist will take a urine sample from an employee or applicant. Once a sample is provided, it is sent to a certified laboratory for screening and analysis.

It is a well-known fact that drug and alcohol abuse and misuse can affect employee health and productivity and may impact safety in the workplace. That is why comprehensive drug tests should be implemented and done regularly. By educating the employees about the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and encouraging individuals with drug related problems to seek help, employers can protect their businesses from such dangers. Moreover, employers will be able to retain valuable employees and will help play a part in making communities safer and healthier.
